"One of the easiest project I made to date. I just printed a bag template and traced it on a black cardstock using a white pencil. Then I prepared the necessary embellishments and cut out my papers first. I opted to adhere the papers and embellishments while the bag lays flat instead of adhering the bag in shape. You can see the step by step in the Snapguide tutorial provided." ~Donna

As soon as I saw the header of today's blog I knew Miranda had a treat for us! Absolutely beautiful gift set & will watch the video as soon as my life allows. The second set is gorgeous too, particularly the vibrancy of colours! Tfs always. I hope one day to revisit G45 tutorials when/if my confidence ever feels just.

Loved Miranda's tutorial...I watched it all and thoroughly enjoyed seeing how she put that little bag together!

How to turn a nice gift in to a million dollar gift...use an adorable, creative bag and matching card like Miranda's. Another great day on the blog. I'm always inspired by Graphic 45 collections.

All of these creations are a piece of art. I love the colors, textures, themes, embellishments. But the things I like most are the creativity and passion of the designers. They revealed some of the many ways to use Graphic 45, and did it beautifully. Graphic 45 paper is top quality and can become quite addictive! It has a touch of magic, I think. :)

Yippee! Thanks for the tutorial and ispirations!

so pretty, love the mixed media bag and card. Great job DT.

I love all the projects and tutorials posted. Hope I have time to try them all. Thanks for a chance to win!

Love all these gift bag and card sets!!! I will have to try and make time to try making some myself!!! TFS!!

Just so sweet and creative, love to try to make these myself. Thank you for sharing your talent!
