Gift Bag with Altered Photo Corner

Hi everyone!  Robbie here today to share a gift bag that I made.  I put this bag together using canvas paper, some trim and some jute.  Then I got to the fun part!  Decorating using my Leaky Shed Chipboard gave it the special touches that it needed!

I love the Flower Leaf Corner from Leaky Shed Studio, but I wanted to use it to frame the flower cluster, instead of the traditional way. 
As you can see from the picture, this is a really pretty chipboard piece with leaves and flourishes.  I just cut it up to arrange it in a different way.  I used chalk ink to color it brown.

I tucked the Leaky Shed Studio Barn Swallow with Crown above the flower cluster.  Instead of coloring it with ink, I covered it with paper.  I chose a subtle print to keep the monochromatic look that I was going for.

Supplies:  Barn Swallow Crown, Flower Leaf Corner

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my project!
