#8 Pretty Faceted Gift Bag

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing Gift Bag number 8 of my Handbag Series.

This faceted style is inspired by a Comtesse bag from 1990.

This is a great sized gift bag with a pretty bow fastening at the top

I added some faux metal corners using silver card which I think finishish the bag perfectly.


The ‘Moments’ 12 x 12 paper pad I used is unavailable online, however you still may be able to find it in your local The Works store.
