Inspired by Stamping - Gift Bag

Hi there everyone. 

I have created a cute little gift bag today with products from Inspired by Stamping which is really easy to make but looks so lovely!

I puchased some pre-made kraft gift bags and doily's knowing they would make a perfect match with Inspired by Stamping goodies.

I started with die-cutting a piece of the  Spring Lilacs Paper Collection then layered the doily on top.


I had stamped my flower onto watercolour paper and used ink and a brush to apply my colour. This flower is from the Elegant Flowers set.

I added Vintage Crochet trim on top of the doily and cut one of the edges on an angle. I thought adding a bit of twine between the lace and the flower would add some interest.

The sentiment is part of a gorgeous set called Petite Banners. I love these stamps with their co-ordinating dies – Label Dies 3.

My colour scheme for my gift bag is kraft, white and purple. They all work very well together. 

The finishing touch was using a hole punch at the top of the bag and adding twine so it can be tied up. You could use anything for this! A pretty ribbon would look beautiful.

I would like to enter my Gift Bag into the following challenges -

The Stamping Boutique - Fussy Cut (I fussy cut my flower)
Anything But A Card - Anything Goes
Art Impressions - Use a Doily

Thanks so much for looking xx
