Beautiful Floral Bag (KCC Blog Hop)

Welcome to this month's blog hop with The Krazy Crafting Crew!!

This month we are making Tags, Bags, Boxes and whatever can be made 3D!! If you just came by to visit with me, thank you, but please start at the first stop with our hostess, Janet (

Janet is also offering a fantastic giveaway. Here's her description of the giveaway that you DON'T want to miss!! Close To My Heart Cloud Nine Cardmaking Kit. Includes card bases, envelopes, cardstock, double sided paper, a stamp set, and washi tape, glitter tape and other embellishments to make 10 cards! Valued at $45.00! You can win this by leaving comments on each blog, and if you're not currently a follower, why not follow the blogs because there's always fun in this group and a blog hop each month to inspire you!

For my project today, I created this 3D gift bag with handles.  I purchased this file from the Silhouette Online Store.  The size of the bag is 8x5x3 inches.
I cut out the bag in hot pink cardstock, and the layer in floral paper from Basic Gray.  It was pretty easy to assemble.  I used my ATG gun to adhere the parts together.

The straps slip into the slits on the sides of the bag. 
I cut some flowers out of two different shades of pink cardstock.  I rolled them up - I have a detailed tutorial on how to make rolled flowers HERE. I put some Glossy Accents on the edges of the flower petals and dusted them with Picked Raspberry Distress Glitter from Tim Holtz.  I hand cut and inked some leaves.  I laid the bag on its side and used Glossy Accents to adhere the leaves and flowers to the front of the bag.
Here is a peek from the top.  You can see how the handles fit in the slits.  
Here is the back of the bag. 
This bag would be darling for an Easter, Mother's Day or Birthday gift.
