Armadillo Gift Bag



Hello everyone! How cute is this gift bag? I did this for More Than Favors which was a gift/treat bag and Bitten By The Bug 2 which was either the bird or armadillo from Birthday Bash. I cut the purse from Once Upon A Princess at fit to page. I also cut the purse handles in the poka dot paper. The armadillo was cut from Birthday Bash at 2 inches. I added Glossy Accents to all the black on him except for his mouth and eyes. I wanted to get the look of patten leather....I think it does. It has a monochromatic look to it. I then added brads to the ends of the purse handles and the corners of the bag. The clasp is a lock brad and I mounted the closure on velcro. To finish I added the ribbon around the whole bag and stamped the sentiment. I hope you all are having a wonderful day!
