Pretty Gift Bag with Dogwood Blossoms - Technique Junkies

Make it:

  • Spray the bag, twill tape, and lace with spray ink; let dry
Tip: Spray the items on a large sheet of packing paper- white or kraft.  The over spray will make a nice pattern on the paper.  The paper can be used for backgrounds in other projects when cut to size.  I always do this and am so surprised how good the paper looks.
  • Glue the paper doily to the bag
  • Cut a tag from pale green CS; punch hole in end
  • Glue a piece of the lace to the long edge of the tag

  • Ink the Dogwood Branch with Regal Rose and dot red ink on the centers of each blossom; stamp on White CS.  Stamp another image for layering 
  • Cut apart the blossoms
  • Add to the green tag and add a second layer to two of the blossoms
  • Tie twill tape and tulle through hole on tag
  • Add tag to bag

  • Place a few drops of glitter glue on finger and rub onto the tag- wash hands- LOL
  • Put glitter glue in the centers of each blossom

  • Glue a piece of the lace to the upper right corner of bag
  • Tie tulle and twill tape in bow and glue over the lace
The dogwood blossoms add such a pretty touch to this little gift bag.  I can fill this little bag with goodies and give to someone special for a birthday, graduation, or bridal shower.  And, the bag could also be used to hold cards or supplies.
