Peachy Keen Challenge - Gift Bags

Hi Everybody!
The next challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps (which is gift bags) was posted last week.  I had the perfect idea for a project!  There are lots of Cricut cartridges that have gift bags on them, but I love the one from Plantain Schoolbook.  And I knew the round shape of the bag would work perfectly with a Peachy face!  So here is how my gift bag turned out:

*Plaintain Schoolbook Cricut cartridge - gift bag
*Everyday Paperdolls Cricut cartridge - hair
*Peachy Keen Stamps - PKK-05 4" Happy Lashes Mouth Open, July Stamp of the Month (flowers from bottom of mailbox)
*Timeless Twine - New Olive Green (earrings)
*white gel pen, red marker, and brown marker for detailing
*Stickles - yellow, orange, green, gold (flower centers)

 *I stamped the flowers from the bottom of the mailbox stamp image (in the July PKS SOTM), and then hand cut them out.  They made the perfect flower clip accesories for my happy girl!

*I "pierced" her ears to give her those stylish earrings :O)
*I stamped the flowers again on the same patterned paper, then punched them out using a small circle punch.

*To make her ears, I took a 1 1/2" circle and cut it in half.
*Then I cut a slit into the gift bag, and slid her ears right in!

I had a lot of fun creating my bag, and these were so easy to put together, I could see making a bunch of these for a party!  TFL, and hope everyone has a chance to craft today :O)

**I'm also linking this up on Link Up Tuesday over at Pink Cricut.**
