A Special Treat...

I love walking through the aisles of my local Joanne's.  I just find that my muse is in the perfect place.  As I walk, I notice things...then think of ways to creatively work with it...One thing I really enjoy searching for are little gift know, the ones you find stuffed full of cookie mixes, candies and hot chocolate during the winter months?  Well, last winter, I went down the aisle and found a box of tea...I didn't really want the tea, but boy did I want that box...SHEESH...Can you believe it?  I bought the gift bag and took it home...I've used the box as a template several times and it's got to be one of my most favorite templates EVER!  So...  here it is, a lovely little gusseted gift bag....
 The paper is from DCWV Linen Closet.  I just love this line of papers.  So shabby, but can also turn into an elegant piece with the help of some sparkly ribbon.  The stamp set used is from Heartfelt Creations and it's called Spring Birdies and Roses Precut Set. 
Of course, I couldn't possibly finish this piece without adding some sparkle...Stickles, that is!!!
