Live With Passion....

Today's post is a fun gift bag that I enjoyed making for a special someone in my life. Friends are wonderful aren't they! Well, this friend helped me out quite a bit this summer, watching my house, my kids and my dog on many different occasions. I wouldn't have been able to enjoy my summer as much I did without her. Thank you V!

I took a basic white gift sack and decorated only the front of the bag to get this result. Here is exactly how I did it:
- Bermuda Bay Card Stock 7 7/8" x 8 1/2", Grass from the Inspired by Nature was stamped on the bottom using Versamark ink
- The flowers were then stamped using Whisper White Craft Ink
- A 7 7/8" x 2" piece of the Bermuda Bay Prints Pattern Designer Series Paper was then attached to the top of the card stock overlapping 1/2"
- A 10" piece of 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain was then adhered over the seam of the two papers
- the ends of a 7" piece of the same ribbon were then stuck together to create a loop and then a 3" piece of ribbon was wrapped around the middle of the loop to create a faux bow and this was then attached to the front of the bag using sticky strip.
- The Bermuda Bay Card Stock was then adhered to the front of the bag with sticky strip. I love sticky strip because it is so sticky that you can be assured your project is not going to fall apart.

The note card was created with a 3" x 6" piece of Whisper White Card Stock. To attach to the bag I punched a 3/16" hole in top of the left corner using the Crop-a-dile and then cut a slit between the hole and top of card using my scissors. Then the note card just slide right over the handle of the bag. There you have it!!!

Have a wonderful Friday and don't forget.......LIVE with Passion!!
