From a Different Angle

Big mistake only photographing this gift bag from the one angle,now that I've looked,it looks like I've made a door hanger!
The gift bag actually had a square base,not that it looks like it here,lol! The trouble was that I generally use my daughter's camera for my blog photos as it takes a much sharper picture than mine. As usual though,she's misplaced her charger and the battery went flat after only one snap but great news,my lovely hubbie has just ordered me up a similar camera so should be good!!!! I'm just a bit excited too. The gift bag was made using the lovely "Poppy Seeds" designer paper pack by K&Co I used my Nestie Trick of placing the cutting pad on only part of the die to cut the handle from the paper using Both a Scalloped circle and my Nesting Circle at the same time,the little semicircle that remained,I used to fold over the top to seal the bag. I hope that if you look at this design you'll be able to get what I mean,I've attached a flower to the flap. I added a lit of bling to the bag,highlighting some of the design with sticky flat backed gems.
I'm entering the following challenges with this:-
Treehouse Thursday Challenge 54, Your Favourite tool.(Couldn't live without my Fiskars cutter/scorer,followed extremely closely by my Cuttlebug.)
Thanks for stopping by,

Hiya Julie,
to add text to a header you need to import it into a photoediting progamme-I used Picasa free download from google. Hope that helps.
