Hi there!!  For this months challenge I found a tutorial on Pinterest to make a "Box In A Bag".  This was so much fun to do, and very simple.  I've used one of the stamps from the stamp set Troll Trouble.  The paper is from K And Company.  I used the MS Doily punch to make the doily around the image and for the decorations on both the top and bottom of the bag.  I finished it off with some flowers and used twine to close the bag.  This bag is big enough for a small gift, or a sweet treat!  I hope you'll give it a try!
Have a great week, and I hope you'll play along with us this month!
