Yup. Happy little gift bags of adorableness. Just say'n.
This first one I created using three fun Scrolls Work stamps. First, I stamped the gorgeous marble background in distress ink on the bag itself. Then I stamped the Tattered Fairy Wings (one of my favorites!) across the bag over the background. This is done in London Fog Momento Ink. I stamped the Prescription bottle (plate #69) on white stamping paper with distress ink and then spritzed it with water to let the ink run a bit. I love how that turned out!!!
To finish off the bag I punched the top with a Martha Stewart decorative punch and then used my Crop-a-dile to add holes for the twine. I adhered a wonderful ribbon bow to the bottle and cut the heart from patterned paper. Overall, I'm in love. Just say'n.
After creating that one, I did a couple of other things, but I just couldn't get those little brown bags out of my head! SOooo... I decided to make another one for the Coffee Filter challenge over at Gingersnap Creations!
For this one I began by inking the edges of a script paper panel and adhering it directly to the bag. I created the coffee filter flower using layered filters (the cone kind) cut to different sizes. I sprayed the entire flower liberally with Glimmer Mist to add the color and shimmer. LOVE IT! The center is a fabulous giant vintage button. *LOVE* I stamped above and below the panel and then, again, punched the top of the bag and added a bit of ribbon to finish it out.
All I can say, is that if you have never altered a paper bag you need to go get one and do it NOW! For reals. You won't regret it! I had SO much fun creating these! It almost makes me want to give people presents or something! HA!!!
