Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC41!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!

Did you all have a wonderful weekend??? Ours was busy....two birthday parties....church, playtime....stampin'....trying to sale my SU Stamps....etc., but it was all good!!!

Which leads me to today's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday (FTTC41) - wahooooo!!!! Today the Blog Design Team is celebrating *Flourishes Release Week* with you. We are sharing with you the *Fancy Labels* Set..... one of 5 Sets to release this Friday!!!

Dee Jackson is our challenge host this week. In keeping with the *Fancy Labels* Set, Dee is challenging us to decorate *Boxes and Bags* - love it!!!! You decide if you want to make a box or a bag to house anything from homemade treats to knitted mittens! We cannot wait to see what you create!!!

I had two idea with this new Set......first is my *gift bag*. Please click on the photos to see them better!!!





















I started out by inking the bag randomly with one of the new flourished images. Next I added the Designer Paper, the *Corrugated Cardboard* the awesome *Gift Wrap Garland* I found at Walmart!!!

My next step was to create a *tag* to go with the bag. Again I inked one of the flourished images from the new Set around the *tag* plus the sentiment in the center. To finish the bag off I added the Checker Ribbon, Red Scrap Floss, the Kaiser Pearls and the decorative Tissue Paper.

************************

My second idea was to create a little *Favor Bag*.

I thought this would be a fun idea to giveaway to neighbors, teachers....of course I included some yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies!!!





















The bag itself was cut out with the Sizzix *Fancy Favor Die*. Very quick to make.....after adhering it I added the handle with some fancy Brads, the center Design Paper, the Chocolate Satin Ribbon, the new image *tag* and the yummy Cookies!!! The *tag* was decorated with some of the new Pearls available at Flourishes.

Hope we have inspired you to play along today....?!?
