Boutique Bag

It's not fair! I've put up with months of dismal weather and then, a soon as it gets warm, I develop some strange runny eyes and nose thing that starts whenever I go outside! Thank goodness I've got my crafty hobby.

Today I've decorated a gift bag and themed it around my fantasy exclusive boutique.

I used images from Crafter's Companion Frou Frou CD and the papers were magazine freebies from long ago.   I added the 'boutique' text to the framed hat mannequin and printed the image onto acetate. I cut an aperture from the pink spotty paper and attached the acetate to it with white brads.  I added a gem to her flower and a strip of black spotty paper and a button.

I printed off a smaller version of the hat mannequin and layered it onto a die-cut frame,into which I punched a hole. Then I attached spotty ribbon and another button.
