This used to be a Trader Joe's paper bag

I will probably never do this again. I had to cover each panel and then trim with ribbon. I don't have really thick double sided tape so I had to use the glue gun and a lot of hand pressing - it got a little hot! I had no bigger bags in the house so I had to improvise. Also, the tag (where the number 1 is) actually holds the gift receipt on the back. It acts as a little envelope. Enjoy! Tressi

Another wine box and gift bags. I was happy with the hawaiian flower bag. I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out what color to make it.

More gift bags and a wine gift box! The cylinder was an old promo box from a friend and she was going to toss it. A tested it out and a wine bottle fit perfectly in the box! I used the word escape from the life's a beach cart. I don't drink anymore, but usually when people drink wine, it is to relax right??? I provided some close up pictures. Credit to Vince for picking out the the color contrast.

Boxes for the holidays. We made over 15 different designs, but didn't get to take pics of the them before we gave them out. Sorry - didn't get to rotate the pic before i posted it. we also used reindeers, santa face, snowmen, and more holiday shapes.

Hopefully, I'll learn how to post more than one picture per post? I'll work on that!

More bags!

Part two of gift bags

These are some gift bags that I made. One is Safari themed and the other one is a black and white with color pop. More to come! I just made a bunch of base bags today and will be working on embelishing them throughout the week. Enjoy!

I apologize for not being able to rotate this picture. These are Chinese New Year envelopes I made. I didn't get a chance to buy any real ones so I made these for the year of tiger.
