Hi friends! Tomorrow at work we're having a grandpa shower for our school social worker who just had his first grandchild a couple of weeks ago. I got him a picture frame and a book, so I thought it would be cute to package them in a handmade bag. (I had a little trouble getting the bag in my light box, so please excuse the picture!) I used an 8" x 10" bag and adhered a piece of DCWV patterned paper. I added an old chipboard giraffe from Basic Grey and thought about adding more embellishments, but decided to make a tag to fill the space instead.
I die-cut the larger tag from Clear and Simple Stamps (Tags 1) and stamped a tag outline from Trendy Tags. The wagon, stack of presents and sentiment were stamped from Cart Pals: Baby. I wanted to keep everything from getting too frilly because I'm giving it to an adult male (but this was tricky because the baby is a girl! LOL).
Of course I needed to make a card to go with the gift, so I used a scrap from the same DCWV paper and used a focal piece I had made for a previous card, but ended up not using. To finish off the card I added some old chipboard from Colorbok. I hope you like my little gift ensemble, thanks so much for stopping by!
