For my 1st month-a-versary with my husband (then boyfriend) in Dec 2010, I didn't want to give him anything personal (watch, shirt, perfume,etc), as we were dating only for a month, so I decided to buy him PSP video games.
But, as I love wrapping my gift in a special way, I couldn't just hand over the games in regular wrapping, so I created this gift bag for him.
I gave him 3 games - God of War (Ghost of Sparta), Dante's Inferno and Syphon Filter Logan's Shadow (I have no idea what they are about, but his best friend helped me pick them up).
So I chose the pictures from the video game and made the below image to make the bag with.
I, then colour printed the image and folded it into a bag.
For the handle, I chose blue, black and white satin ribbon and braided them into a string, punched holes in the bag and tied the string on the inside.
His reaction: He was clearly more intrigued by the games, than the gift bag!!! (Men will never change)
But I am still glad I made it, and I am posting this on his B'day today, to let him know that I appreciate the support he gives for my craft (even though he didn't pay attention to the bag then).
Blissful Birthday SidB.
Till next time crafters, May ART be with you.©
