The Gift Ensemble

As promised, here is a picture of the whole "Welcome" gift ensemble that I made for my new colleague:


I figured that paper and chocolate were a great combination to say "Welcome!"  Of course I had to decorate a gift bag to coordinate with the gifts and card.  Since Stampin' Up doesn't have an apple punch, I decided to use various sizes of circle punches to embellish the gift bag along with an image of that cute little worm again.

Stamps:  First Day
Ink:  Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzaz, Basic Black
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Pear Pizzaz, Poppy Parade
Accessories:  1/4" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (Circle), 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch

I hope I made my new colleague's first day a little easier as she learns her way around.
