Paper Trey Ink Make It Monday Challenge

I am back for another quick post. I am entering Paper Trey Ink's Make it Monday Challenge #143. It was to create a paper project using the style "Modern Whimsy." This was kind of fun but I don't know if I pulled it off.

These are little bags I am sending off to a friend. I have been meaning to do this for WEEKS but just have never found the time. I decided this week that this challenge would be fun to make gift toppers. I knew I wanted to make a vellum flower but for some reason I could not find the vellum I knew I had. Thank goodness I am a craft hoarder because I had some tracing paper and used that instead. I then inked the flower pieces in yellow and pink, punched holes and put them together using a brad in the center to hold them. Didn't they come out pretty?

Besides the flowers, all the other pieces were taken from a box I have full of die cut extras that I have on my desk. I also sometimes stamp extras so I had the leaves all created too. This was so easy and fun to put together!!

I added a button to the center of the pink to make it a bit different from the orange bag. I think this bag is my favorite.

Here is a bit of a close up.

Well, that is it for today. I think two posts in one day is enough!! Have a great rest of the weekend!!
