Bag and Tag - Crafting with Dragonflies DT

Morning/night folks!

Don't forget to enter my candy here!

So, another new challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies, and it's something a little different. This fortnight, we'd like you to make a bag and tag!

I had put this challenge to the back of my mind when I first found out we'd be doing it, and let it sit and stew there for a while. Then, when I picked up the June copy of the Docrafts magazine, there it was! A gorgeous envelope bag. Perfect! Now, I did alter the design a little, and obviously went for a different look (though that one was a Gorjuss bag, which I love, I had other plans for this!). And I ended up with the following:

I used LOTV Country Lady papers to decorate, and also included a metal frame from Docrafts.
My plan was to create a bag with separate pockets for specific occasions, and fill each one with small tags to suit, then present it to my mum when we go up at the end of this month. That way she'll have some pretty tags to add to pressies, and somewhere to keep them in too.

Some of the individual envelopes:

The little journalling tags are also from LOTV. such a cute set, and so useful!

And of course, I had to make lots of tags too! Here's one I made using a stamp from our sponsor Sami Stamps:

Now I know this is a little more work than our last challenge (which was CAS), but it was oh so much fun to do, and it was great doing something different! So go on, have a go! ;-)

And go check out the lovely work my fellow Dragonflies have produced!

Have a supercalifragalistic day!
