Crafter's Companion Inspirers Design Team Card - Catitude Bag

Good morning everyone

Wow, I'm on a roll! 
I'm here once again to share a Crafter's Companion Design Team project with you using the fabulous Catitudes CD-rom. I just couldn't resist using the digital cat elements of the CD this time...they're all sooo gorgeous.

This time I decided to decorate a plain brown paper bag using a cat topper, patterned papers all from the CD, a few die cut flowers, lace and a sprinkling of gems. Simple!

Here's What I Did
I used a small brown paper bag and decorated it with elements from the Catitude Twin CD-Rom. From the CD I took the pale pink background paper into a graphics program and added a sentiment to the bottom of the sheet and printed it off, along with a cat topper to compliment it. I also printed  a sheet of the spotty patterned papers onto thin white card to die cut flowers from it later on.

I matted the pale pink background paper and a strip of the spotty card onto black card and attached them both to the bag, along with a strip of black lace. Next I matted the cat topper onto black card and attached that to the bag as well using foam tape, to it give extra dimension.

Using both black and spotty card I die cut a few flowers and then layered them up. The flowers were added to the bag front along with a few leaves and flourishes cut from black glitter card.  I attached a few gems and a large pearl into the flower centres.

To finish off I attached a lace bow around the handle.

Here's What I Used
