Think Big Challenge

Hi there dear friends!!! I am still having a ton of fun with PTI's anniversary challenges! Today's challenge is to Think Big and boy did I think big. Check out that bow!!! I have been working on this bag for a week and it just wasn't coming together and when I found out about this challenge, my creative juices started flowing!!! Whoo hoo!! This pretty little bag I made for my daughter took flight!!!
The fun thing about this little bag, is I made it out of a 6" x 9" envelope!! I scored the envelope at 1" along the sides of the envelope and at 1" along the bottom of the envelope. I also scored a diagonal line from corner to corner along the bottom of the envelope as shown.
After scoring the envelope, I folded along the scored edges both ways. Then I cut the top flap of the envelope off and punched the edge with a decorative punch.
I folded the bag as shown and glued the flaps to the bottom of the bag. Once the bag was together, I stamped some dots on the front and the sides of the bag.
Added some fun stamped embellishments from PTI, some Prima Florals, and some ribbon and lace from my stash.
Such a fun project that will be sent to my sweet daughter for Valentine's day!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!! I truly appreciate all the comments you leave!!!
Have a wonderful evening!
Kristii
