Truly Scrumptious

Ooh I found a challenge blog I've not joined before. Truly Scrumptious, this week it's to make anything but a card. So I did:

I made a gift bag and matching tag. The tutorial for the bag can be found here . I used some Bazzill card stock as it was already the right size for the tutorial - very lazy of me! The decorative edge and the mats were made using a Fiskars punch, if you want to have a go, cut a
cm square of card or paper and line up as well as you can centrally before punching. I've done this before with a square edge but not cut away completely like this.

The flowers are from my stash and I think the brads are Papermania. I think this is one of the tidiest bows I've managed to do so far. Shame I've got to undo it to pop some goodies in the bag to give as a gift!
