Polka Doodles - Project To Hold A Gift

Good morning everyone, I'm taking a very short break from Tim's fabulous tags as it's Friday and Polka Doodles time.
This week's theme is to make a Project To Hold A Gift and has been chosen by team mate Dee. What a great way to get ahead with some of that all important Christmas packaging (though having said that in my family we have birthdays galore this month!!!).
I've chosen to make a slightly more unusual shaped project as when I saw this fabulous shape on the Paper Boutique Volume 1 CD, I knew it was just perfect for my younger daughter who absolutely loves bags (she takes after my mother in law who also does!)
I've chosen to make the bag up in one of the gorgeous papers Nikky designed especially for the bag as it's a favourite colour of my daughter's being taupe. I made up the A4 size of the bag by printing out the templates on the back of the decorated papers, cutting all the elements out and following the easy, clear instructions. I simply added a flap trimmed with scallop scissors and a pretty white carved button from my vast collection which I attached with thread.
It will be filled with her favourite chocolates - not actually those in the photo which are my favourites! She likes the Lindt D'Or in the red foil wrappers so those are on my huge shopping list for next week.

You have until 12 noon on Sunday 19 December to get your entries in and please, please, please remember to take a look at the challenge rules as we get sooooo many entries we have to discount largely because they break the 10 challenge rule.
