A few months ago I purchased the Green Craft Magazine and I liked an article I found about recycling a brown grocery bag.
So I thought I would share with you my version of recycling a bag into a gift bag.I cut the sides out to open the bag.
Now onto embellishing. I searched again through my stamps and found this wonderful bird. I also found a few flowers and ribbon to go with the bird.
Oh ! What is this? An artist coming in along side me. About thirty minutes later my daughter came out of my studio and said Mom come in here I want to show you my gift bag.
She used a travel stamp and letters that spelled Europe and embellished with paper flowers and shiny big brads. She used rubber bands and plastic string for handles. The rubber bands were inserted where holes were punched and the string tied to the bands. This gave the handles flexability to handle a little weight (she said). I thought she did a excellent job.
