Bag of Blossoms

I was on a little journey blog hopping the hopping day when I came across a fabulous tutorial to make this bag, done by Sarah at Little Snippets. You can view the tutorial here and also some of Sarah's stunning bags but don't just stop there, have a look around at her lovely projects!
My bag is nowhere near as gorgeous as Sarah's but I hope I have done it justice, after all it is my first attempt and probably one of many!!
I made up the bag using 2 sheets of Very Vanilla and decorated it with 3D flowers made with the Blossom Party die and Boho Blossoms punch. The flowers were made in So Saffron and Very Vanilla with a Basic Pearl for the centres and the leaves were cut with the Little Leaves Sizzlits die using Very Vanilla and the ribbon handles are So Saffron Taffeta.
The possibilities for making and decorating these bags are endless and I am itching to make another completely different one so watch this space :0)
Thanks for sharing Sarah - you're a star x
