Gift bag


Gift bag
I made a gift bag.I have kept it very simple with  few embellishments.

rear side
Used white cream colored paper as base  and colored 1/3 part of the bag using wax-resist technique with water colors.Drew some random squares with white wax-crayon and then colored with pink,orange n yellow colors.

I have used straws covered with tissue to make the base for bow.(Similar to this card). The bow is made of up-cycled  packaging net .The charm is made out of some plastic beads n some jewelery pieces.

This box was up-cycled to make the gift bag.
