fan shaped gift bag

 Hello ! A small fan shaped git bag made using some of my scrap papers and awesome topper items (part of a gift from The flowers and sentiment are from Foilplay . Do have a look the items in the shop are beautiful !  Usually I make these 12 x 12 and add a handle to make it an umbrella (check utube for instructions that's where i found it )I took two 6 x 6 pieces of paper (matching) concertina folded then stuck back to back. This creates a small space in which to gift goodies. ! I added a  string handle and filled with metal embellishments.
