Bag-a-lope For You


Hi Friends! I have this cute little gift bag to share with you.  A sweet friend of mine Vicki from Stamped Smiles just posted a tutorial on how to make a gift bag from an envelope and I just had to try it out.  I needed one quickly so I thought now would be the time! So mine is very simple. I used a pre-coloured tag that I had printed out in my stash.  I can't remember where it was from, so if you know please let me know so I can give them credit. Thanks.  Then I stamped the sentiment on it, matted it and stuck it on. :)  I looked though my ribbon and couldn't find what I wanted, so I used a piece of crocheted ribbon instead that I stapled on to the sides.  It was very quick and simple and I'm sure I'll be doing more in the future! Have a great day and do pop by Vicki's to check out her incredible talent!
