So are you wondering what I made with all of these beautiful red roses? Well…check out this beautiful gift bag! I made several gift bags to give to members of my team as part of a swap we were doing. They are super simple to make. I used the chevron bags found in the annual Stampin’ Up! catalog. I simply stamped some gorgeous grunge images on the bag using baked brown sugar ink and added a little “smile” sentiment on the bottom using cherry cobbler ink.
The top of the bag is decorated with a little paper doily folded over the top, the beautiful red rose mounted on a few scrap pieces of designer paper and cardstock punched out with various scalloped circle punches, and a bit of ribbon dangling from underneath everything. Oh…for the final touch…I added a little gold clothes pin to keep the bag closed. 🙂
