Gardening with Dad!

Good morning all!
The sun is shining, it's Friday, and it's nearly the weekend...time for some gardening?

I am having a stall at a couple of craft fairs this month so I have decided to make a few small, inexpensive gifts that children can buy for their Dads, and here is one of them...

This little bag has affectionately become known as the 'Hallett Bag', named after the lovely lady, Caroline, who created a brilliant video on how to make it, which you can find here.

The measurements are below...
DSP - 3.5in x 12in
Base - 2.5in x 5.25in, scored at 1/2 inch all the way round.
Handles - 1/2in x 8in
Top and bottom strips - 12in x 1/2in

I filled mine with a few little gardening goodies...seeds, little pots and plant markers.

The tag is made using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and is stamped with 'Happy' from Celebrate Today and 'Father's Day' from Crazy About You.

Aren't they cute?? I hope to make a few more of these...they only take a few minutes each and I really love how they look!

I hope you have a lovely sunny Friday!
