Digital Tuesday Challenge # 10

It Tuesday again and that means time for another Digital Tuesday Challenge.
It's my turn to host and set the challenge this week and I chose make or decorate a bag or a box.
I thought I would do a different challenge rather than just a card because I know that a lot of us like to make other things and not just cards all the time.
You can just decorate a box or bag you already have or make one from scratch like I did. The only other rule is to use a digital image on your project. It can be any digital image from any company you like or if you are really creative one of your own (I'm certainly not clever enough for that though lol).
So here's what I came up with!
I did make a gift bag to start with but I wasn't keen on the papers I used and just didn't think it looked very nice so this is my second attempt.
I got out one of my old Glittergirls embossing board embossed the bag shape. The only thing that I don't like about using this bag shape is that you can't put anything in it as there are no sides to keep stuff from falling out, it's more decorative then usefull, so I just cut two pieces of card to fit just inside the sides so now I can fill it up with goodies :)
The papers I used are papermania and the digi flowers and leaf are from Fred She Said Polka Dotty Set, I just love these flowers, they are so easy to use and already coloured.
I used a metal flower (I think from Artymiss) with a button on top to look like a fastener kind of thing, and out some little magnetic strips underneath the flap so that it closes. And some ribbon from my stash so it can be carried.
Barry told me I should make one next time I go on a night out to match my outfit lol. Somehow I don't think so, I mean when do I ever get out lol. Only joking I wouldn't seriously use it as a handbag lol.
Well that's my little bit of inspiration but the rest of the design team have some great boxes and bags to show you. Check them all out at Digital Tuesday. I would love to see what you all come up with for this one :)

Hi Lora, wow, its been a long time since I used my board...think i may have to clear all the dust off them lol & have a go!

Its brill hun. I love the colours and as you said, placing 2 side bits so the bag can have a use. I agree, when I 1st got the board, i thought it strange with no sides, i know they're easy to make but still. Nice design though and maybe you have started clearing some dust of alot of these boards right now :o)

Great DT work bless ya!

luv n hugs
