Camera Birgitta Birthday Tag and Gift Bag

My sister-in-law is a real photography buff, so I used that theme for a tag on a birthday gift. After I finished the tag, I thought a gift bag would be a great way to co-ordinate everything!
 * I used the Boutique Accessories Card die and cut it twice - once with card stock and once with Limeade Ice patterned paper. The edges were stamped with two different sentiments from Tiny Tags and Tiny Tags II.
 *The original Camera Birgitta image had shorts and a sleeveless top, so by combining two images and doing some extra colouring, I was able to make a more appropriate look for an early spring tag.  
Birgitta was created by stamping the image onto Bella card stock, colouring with copic markers and then fussy cutting the top half (head and torso). The bottom (pants and shoes) were stamped with another image (Autumn Trevor)  and then fussy cut. The pants were paper pieced and the shoes were coloured with copic markers.
 *Grass (MFT border die) and a little ladybug were added to the bottom of the tag and three blue Stamping Bella dots to the top corner.

PTI Supplies, unless noted:
Stamps -  Swiss Pixie Camera Birgitta &amp and Autumn Trevor (C.C. Designs);

Dies - Boutique Accessories Card die; Grass Border die (MFT)
Other Supplies -  copic markers; Berry Sorbet Twill Ribbon; Stamping Bella Dots;

Gift Bag:
     I measured the gift so that I could create a custom size container to hold it. I used Blueberry Sky gingham paper and white card stock. The top edge of the bag was cut with Adorning Accents Edgelits die (Stampin'Up) and Limitless Layers oval was used to cut the handle opening. The gift  bag was accented with an eyelet border die (Limeade Ice ) and Berry Sorbet circles.

Side view of the gift bag shows how I attached the ribbon on the tag, by punching a small hole below the oval opening.
