So I decorated another gift bag! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how this one turned out. And it is created with mostly PTI products (papertrey ink for the uninitiated) which you can find HERE.
For the tag I just took random scraps that I had and adhered them to a piece of lightweight chipboard, then I ran it through by cuttlebug using a tag die by Sizzix. LOVE IT! Just love that tag. I am seriously excited about how cute the tag turned out.
Mind you these were really just random scraps. I did try to make sure the colors were pleasing together but otherwise there was no rhyme or reason to why I chose that particlar strip ~ other than it was thin and suitable for the purpose.
I took another large scrap of Friends 'til the End decorative paper and put that about midway on the bag just above the bottom portion that I stamped with Polka Dot Basics using Fresh Snow Ink. Over that I took another scrap and just stamped the words from Top Ten and Top Ten additions.
I took the ribbon tag - another scrap just laying around (I try to cut multiple things at once so I am not wasting the turning of my wrist on that machine). I popped that up on pop dots and then put prima flowers with brads in the end. Because I used the Friends 'til the End paper on the tag and the bag I also stamped the flower from Friends 'til the end on the ribbon tag and the words for the sentiment on the tag.
Finally, I finished up the tag by adding a strip of glitter, two more prima flowers with a large brad in the center and tied with grossgrain ribbon. The grossgrain ribbon is used to tie the tag to the bag. Then around that ribbon, I added a large bow using organdy ribbon.
I have been married to my best friend, James for over 20 years. I feel so entirely blessed to be his wife and the mother of his children. We have two wonderfully sweet boys. They are growing so fast and keep us on our toes. I love to scrapbook, stamp cards and gifts, cook and bake. I really like to pamper my guys. And I would love to some day live a sustainable life style on our own homestead. Cows, chickens, goats, OH MY. A garden with tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers and more. Oh, the dreams I have...
For now, I enjoy crafting my "art" out and reading aloud to all three guys. I so enjoy spending time with my family.
