MILs Shabby Bag

I've been sneaky and joined another DT LOL!!  Did you know? ;)

For this one I need LOTS of practice with embellishments, so I've got a bit of practice on making a gift bag for my mother in law.  This bag was plain white when I started out :D

The distressed design papers I've used are from Lemoncraft.  On the edges of these I've used some Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz to break up the layers.

Around the edge of the centre layer I've used some tiny flat back pearl string to create a border.

Inside this the the left are two resin corners.  By the way if anyone knows where you can get these from now in the UK please give me a shout I've been trying to find some more without success!

Ok onto the centre piece.  I've used some wood chip elements from Scrapienic.  These have also been treated with some vintage photo ink.  The mum has been cut out from some scraps of pink design paper with my Sizzix letter dies.  With this I've added a tiny wooden heart.

Onto the central panel I've added some flowers, twine and some tiny silver dragonfly charms.  To finish off I've tied some vintage seam binding in a double bow around the handle.

Hope my mother in law loves it!
