Project - DIY Gift Bag and Tag

It's soooo easy to make your own treat and gift bags from plain ‘ol paper sacks. I happen to have some mini ones (yes…I’ve been hoarding them!), but you can do totally do this with any size you've got on hand. Simple and quick…and completely transforms a plain sack into a beautiful gift bag! I did both front and back - but left the sides plain.


Step 1: Stamp flowers on bag with Versamark ink. Embossed with white embossing powder.

Step 2: Ink “journal page” stamp with light brown ink. Then ink up the center of the flower with yellow ink and the bird with light blue ink. Re-moisten ink on stamp by “huffing” on it - then stamp the image on white cardstock. Sponge Daubers or Mini ink pads work great for this technique!

Step 3: Trim “journal page” image and mat on designer cardstock. Trim as needed.

Step 4: Stamp sentiment on designer cardstock strip. Trim to create banner. Attach with foam tape.

Step 5: Die cut tag from designer cardstock. Attach journal panel with foam tape.

Step 6: Embellish tag with sequins, pearls, flower and ribbons. Attach to bag with clip.

BONUS! Make your own colored ribbon to match any project with Spectrum Noir Markers! Using the chisel end of the marker, simply color the ribbon and let dry. I KNOW! AMAZING!
