Scrapbook Adhesives and Authentique Papers

Hello friends
This project popped up yesterday on The Crafty Power Blog but I thought 
I would also share it with you here today.
I have done a full step by step tutorial on their blog showing how to create this 
gift bag and also how to get that embossing effect. 
I used Grand Labels Four for the main shape but I think many dies could lend themselves to this idea.
Still the opportunity leave a comment on both blogs - Authentique and Scrapbook Adhesives to win prizes.
Today I have a class and I'm taking homemade cake - for any of you that follow me on Facebook you may have seen my message last night - it is quite amazing this cake happened!  
Let's just say, if your sons unpack your food shopping - do not expect it to be put away in the correct places..(butter in the cupboard next to the baked beans!!)
Quick rush to get fresh ingredients - all sorted! 
Have a wonderful weekend - I'm back tomorrow.
Take care.

Morning Christine,
Very pretty gift bag not got any grand dies as they are so expensive will have to wait and see what Christmas brings.
Don't follow facebook so not sure what your drama was but the cake looks lovely.
Hope your class goes well today.

Hi Christine, Love, love, love this little gift bag.What a super idea, one I'm definately going to be reproducing. Will however be using a different die set as I've not got that particular one. The papers are a must too. Hoping everyone's having fun at the studio today. C.B.W. Carolyn x

Hi Christine, I did leave a comment yesterday on the Authentique and Scrapbook Adhesives blog. The bag is brilliant and is on my "to do list" great with christmas around the corner. I do have the Grand labels four so there will be no stopping me. The cake looks yummy too and I am jealous of the ladies that will have eaten it. Hehehe.
Have a great weekend everyone.
