Valentines and Other Things Mushy



The items above were slapped together for the current challenge at BASB. Mye's challenge is to create a valentine's card and gift bag. The only stipulation the bag has to be made of cardstock or pattern paper. Pretty easy challenge, so if interested check it out and join in. I have to give credit to Davinie. I had the bones of the "bag" completed, but had no idea how to pretty it up. Well...until I saw her tutorial on Studio Calico on how to make paper roses. The template for the "bag" came from the destruction of a heart "bag" I had laying around the house. Yep...it gave it's life for a higher cause. Whatever that is. If anyone is interested in seeing the shape of the template, let me know and I can post it here or email a photo. Whatever works.

So that is it. I know the title implied that there was Valentines and other mush stuff, so in other words more than what you got, but sometimes less is more. That, my friend, is my gift to you today. Less of my ramblings. It's a good thing. Have a wonderful weekend!
