Today I've decided to use a template that I got from My Time Made Easy called a Trendy Tool Tote! I had this idea to make the front into a garden using the pansies from A Year in Flowers 1 and a 'fence'. I followed the instructions to create the tote out of yellow bazzill and then made the decorative panels out of light green bazzill, embossing three of them with Argyle EF. The fourth I left plain so it would become my garden background.
I stamped the pansies from A Year in Flowers 1 three times in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (YG13, YG17, YG67, V01, V12, V15, V17, Y15) and then VERY carefully cut them out. I used my BFF's (Edna15) MS Lattice Border Punch to create my white fence and then popped up the pansies over the top. I then added some white satin ribbon to the handle, added a bow, button and tag. The tag was stamped with 'Best Wishes' from the Fanciful Flourishes set and then I stamped the two step butterfly from the same set in purple and overlaid the flourish part in black. I cut the butterfly out and popped it up on foam tape.
Soooooo.....what sort of gift could you put in here?? Well it's big enough to put an assortment of things, but I thought it was perfect for COPICS!!! :) LOL!!!!
