Gift Bags

I follow on her Blog and on Facebook. She had this cute tutorial up this past week and I shared it with a friend and she said , you have to try that! So I did that today! Here is the link to the tutorial.
And here are my versions of the gift bags! I colored both images with promarkers. The snow man image is from High Hopes Rubber Stamps called Birdies Friend Snowman. The bear image is from Lili of the valley Ltd. its one of my favorite all time stamps.  I use scrap paper for the snow man image for the tag, old book pages for the background, glued and sewed them to a paper bag. Do this 2 times... then sew the 2 bags together. (you can see how its done proper like on the video in the link)  I added acrylic paint polka dots for fun and some punched snowflakes to the snowman bag.  The tag is attached with twine and added a couple aged bells that i used vinegar and salt to rust.
This second gift bag, i used some of my scraps from my nordic pines paper! you just have to love plaid.  I used old hymn pages on this bag , and put polka dots again in the back ground with acrylic paints.  I stamped on 2 papers from the nordic pines line and cut them out and added to the stamped imgine, for its cap and scarf.  On the aged bells this time i used some glossy accents and dipped it in some Martha Stewart garnet glitter. These are a quick project, I used 5x10 bags. So it should be album to hold something 4x7 in size about and inch thick i think. She put candy bars in her bags. A big size candy bar would probably fit in these...a pair of gloves...Thanks for stopping by! Adding another bag.. another lily of the valley image with a little girl ice skating with her dog.
