B = Birthday Bag & Birdhouse

Hello there!
We have a new challenge over for you posted on the Deep Ocean Challenge blog.
Please show us your idea for the letter “B” you know.. Bows, boys …Birthday and so on :-X
Cant wait to see what YOU come up with!

I would like to show you the paper bag I decorated yesterday morning “quickly” ( I was running sooo late with my stuff all last week) for Angie. Her birthday was on Sunday and I took her yesterday out to lunch to our favorite Chinese restaurant.
For a moment I thought how fun it would be to use Chinese girl called “Cherry Blossom” on the bag but I had not colored “Rebecca” in yet, so I thought she would look sweet in combination with the new Little Darlings papers as well. The papers I used today were picked from the Fruit Sorbet Collection.

Angie liked that big silver heart I used as buckle at the very top of the bag. It is actually a brad and it comes in a box with 120 pieces – you can see a smaller one used on one of the tags. The opening on the large one is so nice that it can function in so many different ways. I also used some cute little matte finish pale pink buttons on my bows and in the corner of the corrugated paper corner.
Here are some additional supplies I used: Magnolia postmark stamp
Spellbinder: twinking circles, Memory box die, paper doily, Magnolia Tildas Ticket, Magnolia Tea Label tag, Magnolia tag/label 3, Martha Stewart border punch

I will make it short with the last photo… inside the paper bag I added an other decorated birdhouse, this time I used “Gardener Gale” to decorate the outside. All new Saturated Canary stamps can now be purchased by example over at sweet Barbara’s shop Timbroscrapmania!
And yes… Smile thought the birdhouse was the perfect setting to house a Pandora charm box Smile I have so many ideas how to “give” those those beautiful addictive charms.

WOW! I think the bag is a beautiful gift by itself (I agree that heart brad is wonderful and I love the little pink buttons) but then the gift inside! You have out done yourself! There's just something about the designs and colors on this whole thing. Its all so beautiful! Maybe its because it looks and feels so spring-like. Wishing for a little bit of that outside my window today!
