Weekly Blog Project...Loverly Jubblie Party Bag

Hello me lovelies
It's Gemma here with this weeks, Weekly Blog Project which I made a gorgeous party bag to share with you & I have a step by step tutorial of how to make it too. 
I have used one of Little Claire's gorgeous new Loverly Jubblies called 'Daisy Bunting'...isn't she just the sweetest!!
You will find her in Little Claire's shop here & you will find the rest of the Loverly Jubblies here.
This party bag is fantastic because it can be used for any occasion, you just adapt it to suit your needs.

Here is what you will need

Eazi score board
Border punch of your choice
A4 white card cut the width to 14.5cm (as if you was making a square card)
Scalloped coloured circle (using a large nestie)
Stamped image on plain white circle (using a large nestie)
Extra stamped image (to decoupage the other image)
14cm x 10cm Blue strip of card
13.5cm x 9.5cm red gingham backing paper
Promarkers...{skin} oatmeal, blush, ivory {hair} mustard, buttercup, vanilla, primrose {the rest of the image} azure, cyan, sky blue, ruby, poppy
Red gems
Red polka dot ribbon

To make this party bag
1) Using the strip of white card fold it in half & then butt up against the edge of score board, score down box line 1 & then flip over the card & score down the same line again.

2) Using your border punch, punch down one of the short edges of the card, now butt it up against the edge of your board & score down box line 2 as this will now be your flap of your party bag.

3) On the other shorter edge of your card butt up against your board & score down box line 2, now cut this part off.
4) Now fold your party bag, this is what your bag should look like...

Now onto adding all the pretty parts
1) Matt & layer your strip backing paper onto your strip of coloured card, now stick this down onto your party bag.

2) Colour both images with your promarkers..
Tip: When using your promarkers i use the darker colour first & then the lightest because i think it blends better, i do the same no matter how many colours i use.
Now matt & layer your plain white circle which has the stamped image on it, onto the blue scalloped circle.
3) From the extra image you need to cut out little Daisy & her balloon, now stick these down using foam pads onto the other image, this gives little Daisy & her a balloon a bit of a 3d effect.

4) Now stick the scalloped circle onto the flap of your party bag using red tacky tape because it's extra tacky. Now is the extra fun bit, it's time to embellish your party bag!!

Here's the finished party bag with a smaller one i made using the left over white strip from making the first one...
