A big slap on the wrist

A slap on the wrist? For what you might ask? Well, apparently I can't read and missed the whole 'handmade' part of the 'In the Bag/Box' challenge this week at Craft Your Passion. For those of you who would like to play along correctly, this week's challenge is:

To make a handmade gift box or bag

I had this gift bag stashed away (cough cough) and thought it would be fun to dress it up for my oldest son's birthday. I kept it super simple with fun, bright colours and a huge dollar store (cough cough) bow. It turned out super cute, even if it's only partially handmade! (cough cough)

Ah well, there's always next week!
