Gift Bag

Straying from my normal card making for Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week. I wanted a special gift bag for a hostess gift.
I think this sketch worked very well for the bag decor.

The DP is from SU. Green from my scrap file. 2 flourishes are cut with Tim Holtz die. Flower is from SU Mixed Bunch set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler and punched out, then popped up with deminsional Sequins glued in the center make it sparkle. The tag is 2x4 folded in half. The little flower is also from Mixed Bunch. I made a bow with SU's Cherry Cobbler tulle ribbon and tied it on with Cherry Cobbler seam binding.
I will not write on this tag so my friend can reuse the bag, thus the bag is part of the gift. I think it can be either Christmasy or any occasion I'm all for recycling. This bag is actually recycled. It came from a gift shop and had the name stamped on it. The DP covers that name. 


  1. Beautiful bag. The red/green/white combination looks so crisp and fresh. I love that big bow, too!

  2. Beautiful bag!! I love the idea to use a sketch to decorate a bag!!

  3. This is just so fabulous, Donna! I love how you used the sketch for your gift bag. Gorgeous design, and I love the adornments. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
