Altered Gift Bag & Card for Father’s Day

Hello!  Larissa here and today I want to share a fun Father’s Day Card and Gift Bag with you!! 
I was playing around with my punches and thought it woud be great to use along with the BEAUTIFUL May Arts Ribbon and make it alittle masculine in order to use ribbon on a Father’s Day card and Gift Bag!! Some times I feel ribbon is more feminine, so when it comes to using it on more masculine projects I struggle a little. So using it along with a more masculine punched border the ribbon becomes a GREAT accent and not only dresses the project up, but really adds that finishing touch!! I have a video to share that will walk you through making this fun and Interactive card along with a great gift bag to match!!  I hope this gives you some ideas on how to use May Arts Ribbon on your masculine projects to add that perfect touch!!
THANKS for stopping by today and have a FABULOUS DAY!! =)

    Both cards are great–I like how you added the game piece.  The brads are perfect for the gift bag and thanks for the ribbon tips.

    That is so cool! I love that little game piece. And loving the color of that twill.

    I love this bag and card.  If they weren't going to someone I REALLY loved, I'd probaby have a hard time parting with them.  You've got the perfect balance of papers and embellishments to make this a bag and card any guy would love.  Nice work!

    Great project!  I think it is so common to have a tough time with masculine cards and I think you did a great job with yours.  Love it.  Interesting 'embellishment' you have there!
