Beary Nice Gift

I saw about a month ago something similar to what I made. However, when I tried to find it again to look at more of the details, and low and behold, I was unable to find it again. So I made my own template, experimented a bit and came up with this. The way I figure it, I would have had to modify the other anyway, since I wanted to put two gifts inside. The one I made I made to look like a purse, perfect for the little girl I made it for. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, and I think she will like it as well. Christmas can't come soon enough!
The images are both from Stamp Fairy World, isn't he the cutest?! The blue paper you see here is The Paper Studio and the more blue-green paper is Amanda Blu. The ribbon on the 'handle' came on a gift, not sure of the brand. Below is the surprise on the inside:

The ribbon is from my stash-not sure of the brand. It is difficult to see in the picture (although this one kind of show it), the ribbon inside matches the ribbon on the sides. The snowflakes are a punch by Marvy, I punched them in light blue and inked them silver. Below is the picture of the back. The tag is a punch, inked in silver, the paper is the same as around the images on the front. The G is chipboard I inked to match (the one getting this Christmas gift's name begins with G).

Here is a close up of the StampFairyWorld images~I wanted to showcase my coloring (markers and chalk) as well as the darling images.
Don't forget that Stamp Fairy is currently having a design team call. Like these images? Get more information here.
