Gift Bags and Tags - Magnolia-licious July Mini Magnolias


Happy Wednesday!  It's the day of the week that the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog dedicates to the 'Wednesday Mini Magnolia Challenge' where the design team showcases the Mini Magnolia Stamps images, along with a few Stamping Bella images thrown in every now and then.  It's my turn to participate in this week's Wednesday posting.

I've created these gift bags along with the gift tags to showcase the Mini Magnolia Stamps images.  The size of the Mini Tildas is just perfect for gift tags.

These aren't really proper bags.  For each bag, I've actually just made a little white box and wrapped a piece of coloured cardstock around it.  Then I decorated the bags with punched paper laces, ribbons, flowers and diecut leaves.

I've filled each box with mini Lindt dark chocolate squares...yum.

Taking a closer look at the Mini Magnolia Stamps images being featured.
