Creative Gift Wrapping

How do you wrap a gift card? Gift cards can be a great choice to give to someone who loves to shop, but they sure don't look like much on Christmas morning. So here is what I did for a gal who has a great fondness for turtles. First I did this doodle.From my fabrics, I selected this terrific print but my hand painted blue fabric seemed "too" blue so I overdyed it with a bit of green textile paint to tone it down.After printing the turtle in a few sizes onto a sheet of TAP, they were then transferred to the new fabric.Bubbles and wavy line quilting worked great.here is the finished bag that the gift card was tucked into.

Is that a bag with a tape measure as the closer? Whatever it is, I love it. The turtles are wonderful.

What a stunning bag and super way to present a gift card! You'd have to let the receiver know there is something inside as who would expect anything more than this gorgeous bag?!

You are amazing -- again. What a terrific way to personalize your gift. I would be happy just to receive the bag, let alone a gift card. You must make your friends and family feel so special when you do things like this for them. What a talent!
