Something about the image of Newton rustling around inside the gift bag with the tissue paper sticking out spoke to me and I decided to use it on an actual gift bag:
Here is a close up of Newton kitty:
First I stamped Newton on white paper and colored him in using Copic markers, trying to mimic the real Newton's coloring. Then I stamped the bag portion of the image on patterned paper that matched the gift bag I was using and cut out the top along the stamped edge and added about an extra 3/8" on the sides and the bottom of the bag. Then I folded it along the black lines to create a dimensional effect and paper pieced it in place. I tucks a piece of the tissue paper I used in the bag behind Newton kitty in place of the stamped paper and attached him to the panel using thick dimensional dots - VIOLA! You could even tuck a little treat or some rolled up bills in there! Do you like it? Wait 'til you see what my teamies made with it too!
Now on to the fun part...
