Craft-room Challenge Charms

Not very often I use charms or pins but always pleased to join in the challenges at Craft-room Challenge-a very happy, friendly place to visit with beautiful DT samples for inspiration.

This is a little gift bag made from a 5x5 envelope. Lots of different tutorials online for gifts bags from envelopes and many different designs. This one is quite simple as I wanted to try to use the charms as the main feature. They keep the bag closed by pulling down the ribbon

I brayed the whole envelope back and front with the Big Juicy pad-spice

Then I stamped the back and the front the same--I won the stamps in the Craft-room Birthday Blog Hop and they are beautiful with small images and large images all in the same pack. Hobby Art CS025D Anna's Collection-Oriental

I think it will be nice to send a little gift inside.


  1. What a gorgeous gift bag and fabulous use of ribbons and charms :o) Thank you for sharing it with us at Craft-room challenge this fortnight. Good luck. Hugs


  2. Gorgeous gift bag. The colours are perfect for the oriental theme. Whoever receives a gift in this bag will be very lucky indeed! xx

  3. Great bag Chrissie and love how you've attached the charms and used them to balance your piece. Love the images too.

  4. Lovely bag such a great idea, the way you used the stamps framing the image with the ribbon. Glad you enjoy our challenge Maria is thinking of joining us at the Hull show by the way. XOXO Zoe

  5. Wow Chrissie, I absolutely adore this little bag, superb. Thanks for joining us at Craft Room Challenge and good luck. Julia xxxx

  6. Hi Chrissie, what a fabulous idea! I love how you've used the ribbon with the charms on the end, and these stamps are gorgeous (I have this set but haven't used it yet). Thanks for joining in with our Charms/Pins theme over at the Craft-Room Challenge.
