Anything but a card with Ruby's Rainbow

Hi everyone.
I hope you're all well.

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Ruby's Rainbow.

Our theme for the next fortnight is Anything but a card.

As I usually make cards I had to have a think about this one...

I decided to make a gift bag to put some choccies in for Easter...

I started with an A4 sheet of paper. It's a fleshy colour with a linen texture. I folded the gift bag using a method I saw on Create and Craft a couple of weeks ago. I did it from memory but there are lots of tutorials online. I then added a rectangle of patterned backing paper then created the bunny from various circles and ovals cut using dies. I made the teeth freehand, finishing off with googly eyes and a bow...

I stamped the sentiment onto some spotty paper and placed it below the bunny.
I then had to decide how to close the bag. I chose to cut a scalloped circle, which I folded in half and glued to the back of the bag so that it folded over the front. It's then held together with a tiny peg. I have loads of these and have been wondering what to do with them...
I guess I'll have to make another one now...I've got 2 daughters...

I hope you'll pop over to the challenge and have a look at the awesome inspiration from my very talented team mates. Thanks for looking.

Happy crafting.
