Not a card this time!

It's my sister's birthday tomorrow, I'm not giving her much as a present as I have bought her a ticket to see JLS later in the year. I wanted to give her something and whilst browsing Papercraft Planet I found a link to here where I purchased the download template and instructions. They look fab and are very easy to make. I used the Free download papers from Zoe Pearn if you haven't already seen these, they are available here when you sign up for updates from Zoe. Some of you will have seen that I have used very little else since getting these!! I love them!

I printed the papers onto Rymans card, Plain on one side and flowery on the other for the main body of the bag. Spotty one side and plain on the other for trim, handles, and base as well as inside pocket and accessories.

The template for the bag comes as a PDF which I printed onto the flower side of the paper and cut out. The instructions for the card come as a PDF with pictures for each step and are very easy to follow. The download is $5.00, which I know some may think is a bit much, but I think I will get my monies worth from this one, I can see several of these being made for upcoming birthday's.

Anyway here it is:

And the contents are:

A picture of JLS, in place of the ticket as I don't have them yet!

A small Purse and a post it note holder with a mini gel pen.

There's a £1 in the Little purse, I have printed the flowery pattern onto some 120gsm paper and put inside the barrel of the pen so it matches the whole theme. The rymans card was too thick for this.

If I have time before she comes here tomorrow I would like to pop to town and pick up a couple of things to put in just a small body spray and lip gloss maybe? We'll have to see if I have time. We're off out tomorrow to Barnstaple and we're going to Prezzo for lunch, somewhere I have not been yet but heard great things about!

Thanks for looking!
