Breakfast at Tiffany's Loaded Envelope

Another Loaded Envelope to share 
this one has a Breakfast at Tiffany's Theme
so I went with a Blue colour scheme and use some
 Audrey Hepburn images to decorate.

Paper Handbag filled with goodies
I put a pearl necklace and blue scarf inside the handbag as a gift
and filled the box with  Handmade Tags
Handmade flowers, Stick pins, Die cuts with a tea theme,
Matching backgrounds, and quotes so the recipient can make the  tags into cards. 

The sides and base of the handbag have a concertina design,
so that the handbag expands

The Handle was made from a pleated Ribbon plait 

Some of the goodies 

Handmade paper and lace flowers

Stick pins

Handmade Lace Flower

A Decorate tag

A flower Arrangement for a card or box.
