Dressing up a Gift Bag

I wrote this as a member of the Design Team at Flamingo Scraps and wanted to share it here.

I love dressing up plain gift bags.  Here's a very inexpensive gift bag from Michaels.  With a coupon, I paid under $2.00 for a pack of 10. 


I didn't like the white handle, so I gave it a quick spray with Peach Delight Glimmer Mist.  I also gave the front of the bag a light spray.  The colors matched really well, so it mostly provided a bit of shimmer.


With Key Lime Pie Glimmer Mist, I colored some lace.  I used the same technique to curl the lace into vines that I did during September's Flamingo Five at Flamingo Scraps.   


I dug into my scraps pile and layered a green polka dot on some plain white paper.  (Actually, the white paper is the back of a very ugly pattern!)  I rubbed some Orange Peel Stickles onto a Prima flower, added a button in the center, then attached my green vines.


Here's the finished bag.  I think it's much cuter and much more personal than the original!


Do you dress up your gift bags?  If so, put a link in the comments so I can see what you've done!
