Another post for Unstampabelles Challenge#60

#60 Anything but a Card: twist - tutorial or link to tutorial on 'how to make this' added to your blog


Today I am showcasing a gift bag I very quickly threw together in need, using some die cuts I had purchased some time ago and a gift bag bought from an el cheapo shop. We have a chain of shops here called 'Shiploads' and every so often I visit and fill my trolley with 'stuff' that is too cheap to leave behind. Today I used some of the 'stuff'.

The bags came in a set of 4 and probably cost .50c each - they already had a black plate on one side of the bag. I contemplated covering this as they are not straight but decided to go with the flow as I didn't have a lot of time.

This is the collection of diecuts I used to decorate the bag - there is a very clever panel behind the cellophane bag with an image of all the items in the bag (x 2) so I am able to note on this what has been used already without tipping it all out to check.

I lay the selected items on the bag and moved them around until I was happy with the arrangement.

The ribbon curl made a great 'roadway' for the scooter.

I did add some tissue paper and gold ribbon with the present but didn't take a photo of that!
Told you I was in a hurry.

So, this was made for Unstampabelles current challenge 
and this is the prize offered for random selection

I think I am grateful we don't have shiploads here!
Fab dressing up the bag. Love the use of the ribbon for a road - clever.
