Here's a cute idea that is incredibly simple to recreate. Just take a brown paper lunch bag and cut about 4" off from the top edge. Cover the front and back with a piece of solid cardstock. Layer with coordinating background and texture paper such as Silhouette. Add embellishments to your heart's desire. A ribbon handle completes the gift bag. Don't forget to attach a hand stamped gift tag!
For this cute little bag, I used our Big Pinks as the center focal point, distressing them a little bit with brown ink. (Brown and pink always go together...it's one of my favorite color combinations.) Although this Silhouette Background & Texture paper is predominatly black, there are also tan flowers. You know what I should have done? Color a few of the tan flowers pink. Afterthoughts are great, aren't they?
I'm off to Long Beach tomorrow for the Close To My Heart Leadership Conference. I love these annual events because I get to hang out with fellow consultants who are also great friends. I don't know but I think we'll have a sneak peek into what's coming in the Fall/Winter Idea Book. But you'll have to wait! (Sorry but it's only fair to my fellow consultants:-)
I'll keep you updated on the latest and greatest things happening this weekend, including an evening at Disneyland! (I'll bet you didn't know I'm addicted to rollercoasters:)
