Pretty in Pink & Turquoise

The Ribbon Reel we have another gorgeous inspiration pic to get your creative juices flowing, and this week Pauline has set the challenge to create a card or project using the colors TURQUOISE, HOT PINK AND WHITE.

For my project, I decided  I would create something other than a card for a change! With Christmas coming up, it's a great idea to have some little gift packets / boxes made up.

I made this 'bag' by wrapping a sheet of 12x12 paper around an old box base, it's scoring the corners for a sharp and neat finish. A couple of eyelets through the top threaded with some Silky Crush ribbon create the fastening.I have decorated with a doily, tag and of course ribbons!
