Gift bag Tutotial- Feat. BobnBetty Ornate paper collection

Heya folks,
Girls love to have an attractive assortment of bags in their closet. Be it a college day or an event, a bag is a must have accessory for every girl. So, how about giving it a creative bend? The bags that you usually carry either have some metal embellishments or of single color. 
The creative beast within me compelled me to try something out of the box. For this I chose Ornate Annie pattern papers from Bob n Betty. No paper could have been a better choice for making these bags.

This was a trial and it turned out to be beautiful. I didn’t take pics while making it, so for the pictorial I’ve used other paper from Ornate Annie.
The  Material required:
  • 2 Bob n Betty pattern papers from Ornate Annie collection. ( I am using 6×6 inch papers)
  • Canvas that would fit both the pattern papers.
  • Mod Podge
  • Paintbrush
  • Brayer
  • Needle and thread
  • Distress stain in colors of your choice, stamp pad in colour of your choice
  • Ribbon
  • Beads and charms to decorate the bag, Viva décor inka gold paint
  • Stamps and stencils!!!
Part 1 : Pictorial for Image Transfer
Repeat the above steps for the second pattern paper also and cut both the canvases to size.
Part 2 : Making the bag.
  • Once the canvas is cut to size. Oppose the canvas with the pattern to each other and clip them at one end.
  • I don’t have mad sewing skills. I just used a simple running stitch to sew the canvases together on 3 sides.
  • Once sewing is done. Reverse the canvases to get a pouch with one side open.
  • Punch holes to the free side of the pouch to attach the ribbon.
  • Now it’s left to your imagination as to how you decorate it. I used co-coordinating Tim Holtz distress stain to cover the areas where the image transfer was not up to mark.
  • I used coordinating color of ink pad and used mixed media stamps to randomly cover the canvas on both the sides.
  • Later I used Viva décor Inka gold and stencil to add some more interest to the finished bag.
  • Once happy with the look of the gift bag. I added in some beads and charms to finish it off

Hope you all enjoyed the process of making this gift bag.

For Amma dearest :*

Heya folks,

Welcoming the new month with a new challenge over at Indian craft room!!! I can't believe we have already reached the month of May 2016!!! 

This month's coasteride is super duper awesome. I am sure it will push you to try something new. Yup, its a pocket letter challenge.

Here's the story board for you :)

 This Storyboard is designed by Hostess, Shraddha Patel. Such a wonderful and thoughtful challenge and theme. 

So here's what I made!!!
As I didnt have a pocket letter folio, I used a 12x12 inch pattern paper and scored it at 4 inches vertically and horizontally. I used the pattern paper from BobnBetty- the Ornate annie collection to make the different portions.

I had a awesome time creating this one as it was completely out of my comfort zone.

For the 1st portion I used glitter alphas from Itsy Bitsy to spell out AMMA (that's what I call my mom), the flowers are from the poolside ephemera collection.
For the 2nd potion I kept it simple- Used a floral washi tape and a co-ordinating color of quilled flower, then added the word love again from poolside ephemera collection and a wooden butterfly.
The 3rd portion has a beautiful quote- "Beautiful, gentle, understanding, forgiving- my mothers love."
The 4th portion is a quote again- "For the friend, the support, the mom your are- I love you."
The 5th portion is one of my favs coz of the pattern paper I simply love this particular pattern in the ornate annie collection the most!!! The Camera is again from ephemera poolside collection!!! (Pic will be added later)

The 6th portion is simple with the moment that I made my mom proud!!! My graduation day :) (Pic to be added later)
The 7th portion is embellished using butterfly from itsy bitsy collection. The quote love this is from ephemera poolside colllection.
The 8th portion reads Happy mother's day!!!

The 9th portion is my 2nd favorite portion because I made use of the ornate annie collection to make a set of coasters but I somehow felt it didnt do justice to the paper. The altenew stamp kind of overpowered creation. The coaster added the perfect touch to this pocket letter adding the much needed dimension!!

Do play along this lovely challenge and stand for the chance to win a beautiful stampset from a new Indian Stamping Company, Mudra.
