"A Bag" (6th DT Work) for Kaboodle Doodles' Challenge #80: Bag It! or Tag It!

Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #80 is Bag It! or Tag It!.  Winner to be drawn randomly with sponsor prize of $10 voucher from Kenny K on Tues, Aug. 23, 2011 at US timezone.  Participants have until Sun., Aug. 21, 2011 to link their entries at the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog.

I took the easier route and went with making a PAPER BAG.  I'm at a loss with creating tags and would normally turn out simple ones.  With the bag, my thoughts went to delicious treats or pretty keepsakes to be lodged within a similarly pretty bag.  And so, I commenced on finding resources and creating (1) dainty looking bag. I utilized and paper pieced Kenny K's "Game Show Gals" digi image.  Here's what I got to show for it:

SUPPLIES: Pattern Paper: K&Company, Cardstock: Star Paper Corp., Die Cuts: K&Company, Digi Image: Kenny K's "Game Show Gals", Ribbon: EK Success, Gems: Darice.

Just need to write on the space on the digi image the dedication or sentiment to accompany the gift bag. . .
