Bags for plaques

WOW I felt so surprised when so many of you lovely people decided to comment on my last couple of posts.  I am very grateful you took the time to make such lovely comments especially since I had been absent for a while. The birthday wishes were wonderful as well.

I felt the plaques I made need a bag so it was more of a surprise when the winners received them, so this is what I came up with.

The card is from my stash and the flowers are Spellbinders Asters.
Easy peasy to make the bags just two pieces for back and front whatever size you need.  A strip 3" wide scored 1/2" at each long side and folded (I needed two as the bags measure 12" x 8").  Then glue it round and cut a hole for hand grip. Said it was easy.

I had a lovely day yesterday. My sister came round with her grandchildren and great grandchild with a birthday cake with a candle for me to blow out and make a wish and we had fun scoffing cake and pop and playing games, my ideal birthday Day.

Well as Bugs Bunny says "That's all Folks", have a great day today, we have sunshine but cool.
