Blossom Bouquet Bag...

When I saw the new Triple Layer Punches in the Mini catalog...I knew I had to have them. And they are SO much fun to work with. I just had to play with the "Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch" right away and this is the first project I made with it...
I wanted to make a project using a bunch of the flowers, all in different ways. I found this strip of Designer Series Paper laying around my stamp room. So I didn't measure it or anything, I just scored all edges at 1", cut some tabs, and folded it up to make a bag. Used some jumbo eyelets to hold my ribbon handle, added some cardstock on the inside to make it a bit more sturdy...and VOILA! The perfect canvas for some Blossom Bouquet punches. I just used the colors in the Designer Series Paper...which is from the Nursery Suite Specialty pack....and went to town. I also punched out some circle punches (1" and 3/4") and added those to the mix. The colors I used were Regal Rose, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, and Chocolate Chip. I also got some fun coordinating accessories out. Then I just went crazy layering and making some fun flowers. Adhere them to the front of the bag and there you have it! A simple project with lots of "PUNCH!" :) (Hehe...get it?!) Anyway....here is the cardstock I added to the inside...

And then look at that fun scallop detail I added to the top of the bag...

And then here is a close up of the layered flowers...

Thanks for visiting! I hope you enjoy!!!
