I decorated a gift bag with Harry as I couldn't get him to fit on my card 
just the way I wanted him to!
This image just screamed out for bright rainbow colours!

Here's the gift bag again with the little tag I made on show!
I printed Harry out three times & coloured him up, then fussy cut each one out!
I attached two of the images to my bag, with foam dimensionals,
 then cut the balloons off of the third one & added them to the tag in the same way!
The tag was cut with a Sizzix Original die!

I've attached the tag with a little piece of bakers twine.

The images were coloured with Promarkers & the DP's 
are from the K & Company Hopscotch Pad!

I also added some little buttons from my stash!

Here's a closer look at the tag & images!

Harry is really soaring here!
I used to always dream about going on a balloon flight & I 
finally managed it for my 45th Birthday a few years back!
It was incredible!

Thanks for stopping by to look at my little Gift Bag!
