Rainy Day Savings

Here it is Thursday, time for a new challenge over at Meljen's Designs. This week the theme is "Anything Goes"! So get those creative juices flowing, let your imagination run wild and remember to share your project with us by uploading it at Meljen's Designs.   Just go right here...
For my project I decided to make something other than a card. I came across this cute gift bag idea at Splitcoaster Stampers and knew I just had to give it a try. So get ready for a sort of slide show, 'cuz I took a few pictures.
Back View
I folder embossed the base of the bag (front & back). I die cut the scalloped circles and placed them around the holes I had punched to make  the handle. The layered flowers and leaves were cut using  Spellbinder Dies. I added pearls for the flower centers. The Dp is MME.

 There are 2 decorated pockets (one on the front the other on the back). Great places to insert a monetary gift or gift cards, etc,

Side View
To close the bag up I simply brought up the front & back portions & tied a pretty ribbon through the punched holes. 

Front View
Here is my project from the front. I used Melissa's cute image "Piggy Bank". It's one of her new releases this month and you can find it here:

Well, thanks for sticking with me through this long post.
Blessings on your day.
