'Ruby' Decorated gift bag

Hi bloggers,

I'm sharing a decorated gift bag today, made with products from Scrapbook Boutique.  The little blue bag is one I had in my stash, I always keep a couple........just in case!  As a paper crafter it's easy to dress up a cheap buy with papers, stamps and ink and it makes for a fun way to give a gift.

Here's how:

  • Stamp the image to X-Press It blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
  • Colour the image using Copic markers and a Spica pen for her beads.
  • Stamp the sentiment to smooth white card using Memento Bahama Blue ink.
  • Die cut the sentiment plus some DP using Spellbinders Labels 8 Die.
  • Adhere the sentiment over the DP (at an angle) and punch a hole in the top right hand corner.
  • Layer 2 strips of DP and trim to fit the width of the bag.
  • Add the coloured image to the front of the bag.
  • Thread some blue ribbon around the bag handles and through the punched hole in the label, finishing with a bow.
  • Add three enamel dots to complete.

That's it today, thanks so much for stopping by.
