My first Gate Fold Paper Bag Mini

This was a lot of fun.  I found this great tutorial(part 2), from Laura with Follow the Paper Trail and got to work.  This one is not perfect, I will make some changes to the next one I do, I have that one in process, it will be a Christmas Mini.
The paper is SU Designer Paper from last year I believe, this was the first time I've used it, forgot I had it.

I used lot of tags.

There are 2 circles' one is glued down and the other is velcroed down so it can be moved to add a pic and to view the pic.

The CS on these flaps shimmer.  I used the Pearl Ex powder and alcohol and sprayed it on the CS.  I love stuff the shimmers.  I also used it on some of the flowers.

In the flaps I used the square tags and I also used some round tags.

I  added a few beads on this page.  I'm not done embellishing yet, I want to add more ribbon and some other fun stuff.  I used pink felt as the binding.  If you make one be sure to watch part 2 of the tutorial, Laura shows your different bidding options.  I did not watch part 2 cause how hard can it be to bind it right, I have made other kinds of minis before.  Boy was I wrong!  I had to cut the spine out and then use the felt.  So be sure to watch it!

Here are a few embellishments I made for the Christmas Mini I will be on working next.  I'm still trying to come up with a Christmas card design, still have not found my stamps I want to use.  I do hope they show up!
