First time for everything xxx

Well its my friends birthday and I forgot the gift bag!!

I remembered that I'd seen a post on Heathers blog I think it was last week with a brown bag and so thought I would give it a go!!

I'd picked up a pack of 10 sandwich bags from home bargains last week and so away I went.


Found this lovely butterfly paper in my stash so added green bazzil and distressed the edges then inked with vintage photo ink.

Some lovely brown lace, used my nesties and found these lovely flowers and leaves in my stash. Finally the butterfly with added stickles.

The back is just the same as the front but added the with love sentiment. A magnolia tag with a magnolia sentiment on and edged in the brown ink.

Everyone who has seen it thought it was lovely so may have to have a go with one of my many stamps for a cute version!

Have a great day Love Chanelle xxx

Channelle your friend is going to love this gift bag. I love the sweet little tag and that awesome butterfly. It's amazing how you can take a plain paper bag and make it something dazzling as this. The distressed edges are perfect. What an awesome way to present your gift.
