A bento bag and a tag

One of my colleagues is leaving our team soon in order to pursue her travel dreams so I made her a bento bag as a farewell gift. I'd seen a lot of these cute re-usable bags popping up on instagram and thought she'd appreciate one. While they are easy to make (I followed this tutorial), they are not easy to photograph :)

I also made a tag inspired by the July challenge over at Scrapbook Boutique:

 Inspired by the moodboard, I used lots of aqua and some travel-themed bits and pieces.

I'll fill the bag with some yummy goodies and give it to her next week.
