I've been playing.......

I saw a demo of how to make this little gife bag/box on Create & Craft this morning, so thought I've have a go. I used my Christmas present from hubby to cut the fancy pieces, the Grand Calibur, well I had to have a play to make sure it was working ok didn't I...... lol. Anyway this is the perfect size for a box of Maltesers and an envelope containing some money. I used the Maltesers to get the sizes right. I thought it turned out ok for my first attempt.

Edited to say, I've added a tutorial for this gift bag in the Tutorial section. Just click on 'Tutorials' at the top.
