Banana Split Sunday!

This week's Banana Split Sunday challenge is to make a bag, box or wrapping paper. Perfect timing for me, because this week we're having our annual Fall Brunch for our women's Bible study and I always like to take a little prize or two for the winners of the games we play. This tall thin bag will be just perfect for a journal or small devotional book.

I especially enjoyed this particular challenge because my friend Pinky got a new Scor-Pal and gave me her old one! Oh My Goodness! What a difference this tool made! Pinky, I have been enjoying my new toy just for scoring card folds, but it made this project so easy and fun! Thank you and {{hugs}} for your generosity! I love it! You're such a sweetheart!

Love this Pink Paislee "Fetching" paper too! The leafy design just draws me toward simplicity and a minimalist style. Today I chose to leave my gift bag ultra simple, highlighting the leaves with dew drops, inking the edges with distress ink, and making an oval tag with the sentiment Peace, Love and Happiness from the August/September journaling set. I also stamped a small single layer butterfly from the same set to add to the sheer ribbon that holds the flap of the bag closed. I used a couple of Copic markers to tint the inner design ever so slightly.

I hope my Bible study ladies will think that this is a lovely and elegant gift. Sometimes they really make me smile because they enjoy the wrappings as much as the gift itself! They are such a gift to me! Just like my friend Pinky!

Visit the Banana Blog to find some inspiration, and then play along with us in this fun challenge! The winner will win a Pink Paislee goodie bag chosen by 2RB. Fun stuff!
