A little pixie dust and viola'

Well, it took much longer than expected at the hair salon for my new do, but I love that little extra feel good 'lift' you get with a fresh look :) I said I'd be back, just wasn't expecting it to be this late. These are the favors I am kreating for my daughters 5th birthday - TinkerBell themed. I picked up these lime paper sacks at Michaels (measured 4-5/8" x 2-7/8" x 8-5/8"). I cut the height of the bag approximately in half and decorated some faux stitching with my White Signo Gel Pen. I used Orchid Opulence Craft ink and the flower from God's Beauty hostess lev 1 and then sprinkled with Iridescent Ice Embossing powder (perfect glittery pixie dust for Tink). I took my Top Note Die and ran it through the Big Shot. Then I took my purple Top Note and ran it through the Big Shot again with the large dot Texturz Background Plate. Added some faux stitching again with my White Signo Pen and on the back used my Crop a dile to place to holes. Used some ribbon from my pre SU days and threaded it through the holes. Placed Sticky Strip to hold the ribbon down and also adhere to the back of my bag. Used my Scallop Circle punch to pop out my TinkerBell sticker and adhered half to my flap (so that you can open the bag).


My original 'purse' (below) was inspired by Becky Roberts purse here, but it just wasn't big enough. With a little altering its close enough. And I'm sure the kids will just be interested in the goodies inside anyway :) LOL And my daughter thought it was just beautiful (and immediately just wanted to take off the Tink sticker) - so thats all that counts!


Off to bed now! Nitey Nite :)
