Spring flower gift bag
This fun little bag was a Spring Workshop project over the weekend. I found the little bags at the dollar store - 12 for $1. They are a little flimsy, but once it was decorated it was a little sturdier and ready for a little gift.
I folded open the box, igoring the scores on the sides that would make it an actual bag. I wrapped a piece of b&t paper around and glued it into place. On the front panel, I added a square of Cranberry cardstock, layered with a random stamped panel. The flower stamps are from the Delight in Everything set and I used Cranberry, Breeze, and Buttercup inks to stamp.
The small flower in the corner was stamped on a piece of cranberry cardstock. The cardstock was placed on a thin mat (the cushion provided with CTMH's stamps) and with an embossing stylus I gently outlined and pressed the entire image. Finally, I sanded the front of the embossed image and attached it to the bag with a piece of foam tape. The final touch was a knot of ribbon on the handle.
Here's another view so that you can see the fun paper a little better.
