An Elegant Snowflake

Lori was our host this week for the inspiration challenge over on Split Coast and she showed us a fun Moyna Bags web site. I found this pretty beaded star bag that inspired me. I used a great bag template that I found From Mel Stamps for my project.


I embossed these pretty snowflakes from Waltzingmouse Stamps in silver EP. I outlined the sentiment shape with my Krylon Silver leafing pen and attached it with foam dimensionals. I knotted 4 different ribbons through the handle and filled the box with white paper shred. Hershey kisses or some other candy wrapped in silver would look super in this cute box!

This project also qualifies for the Moxie Fab World challenge to make an elegant card/project. Check out the fun challenges over there - you have until 9/7/09 at midnight to link your projects!
