Cocoa Gift Bag and Mini Card

Hello! Today I want to share with you a very girlie gift bag and matching mini card – I plan to fill this with little gifts like flip flops, sunglasses, and a great book for a summer birthday!
I started altering a plain bright pink gift bag by taking out the string handle and adding a strip of green and dp along the top using a Martha Stewart scallops punch. I used Stampin Up’s flower eyelets in the holes and added yellow ribbon for the handles.
I don’t often use such bright colors but I was going for a summer neon look!  The dp is Echo Park's Summer Days and the cardstock is from Stampin Up including Yoyo Yellow, Green Galore, Melon Mambo.
I also used MFT’s small scallops Die-namic and Spellbinders Circles and Lacey Circles.
The flip flops were created with a little template I made and I added yellow eyelets, ribbon, flowers and brads to decorate them.
I colored these fun mages from the Beach Bum Cocoa set with copics and the sky was sponged with SU’s Cool Caribbean using a cloud cut with Papertrey Ink’s cloud die.
The purple twine is from The Twinery, but you can now find twine in a selection of beautiful colors at Sweet and Sassy Stamps!
You can also use the Cocoa images to stamp repeatedly and randomly on the tissue paper inside the bag for a totally coordinated look.
Have a great weekend, Bridget
