Peachy Keen Challenge - 3D Objects

Gift Bag for my daughter's birthday 

The idea and measurements for this bag came from
Papercrafts & Stamp It! Treasury of Tips and Tricks

It is approximately & 7.5 inches tall 
Perfect for perfume or lotion, etc

I love the way the skirt turned out.
It was created with Recollectins Boutique Fleur in light and dark pink.
I just kept cutting and gluing until I was happy with the result.

I drew her out using Collage Couture by Julie Nutting as a guide, 
then traced the various pieces and paper pieced her and the outfit 
together.  What is cool about doing it this way is that I have the original that
I can use over and over again. Then I can change the details along the way.
The skirt turned out differently than I first imagines.
I only used two large size flowers. 
Then I placed a button and twine on one one button 
Liquid Pearl on the one on the skirt 
and then a glossy one one the top.

I often create bows but I changed it up seeing that the 
ribbon has a wired edge that you can do different things with. 

I have also discovered that it is best to create something and then 
allow it to sit for awhile and then add more details.
