A Christmas Gift Pouch (Bugaboo image)

Hi crafty friends,

I have made this cute little pouch for my mum for Christmas as she wanted a Bunnings gift card and although the card itself looks Christmassy it isn't very exciting to wrap up in paper. I just used a normal card size paper and folded over the top (about 1.5cm) and cut about 1.6cm off the other end so the lip would fit over nicely. I then used double sided tape along the 2 sides to seal it and make the envelope. From there, I decorated the front and will now hope she likes it hehe. The oh-so-cute image is from Bugaboo. The white flower is from Flourish with a Bling.

  11. This is such a great card! I thought it was so clever of you to center your image on those great red and white circles! I would've never thought to do that, but your darling bear looks right at home! The glitter adds just the right bit of holiday bling and I always adore the use of fabric when mixed with paper. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
