Pass Some Time at Craft My Life

My lovely friend, Elaine, asked me to do a guest spot on her beautiful craft blog called Craft My Life.  I've made a little gift bag that will cost the price of a piece of paper, a small amount of ribbon and a little tag, scissors and a small ball tool..

I found the template here and don't you just love something that's free. I right clicked on the image and selected 'Copy Image'  I then opened a text document (MS Word or Open Office text doc) and right clicked and pasted the image into the document.  I picked up the corner anchors of the image and stretched it as much as would fit on the page. The image was the printed on to the back a piece of Kanban's Mckenzie card stock.  Note: if you would like to make this as big as possible check that your printer can print borderless. The image has quite thick black lines to it making it easy to cut out for little ones.  There are dotted score  lines on the image and this is where you will score with the ball tool.  Fold in on the scored lines and glue. Punch a hole on either side and thread the ribbon through. Decorate with flowers, leaves or a tag. How about using those left over pieces of paper that lurk in your paper stash, just make sure the image will fit by printing it out on a piece of copy paper first as a template.
