A quick decorated bag


I am currently on a mission to decorate a bunch of paper bags that I recently uncovered in my stash while decluttering. Perfect...since I also wanted to use up some of the paper packs I own. 

Like this DCVW paper stack that I've been trying forever to use up. (In case you were wondering...I bought a couple of Fresh facial masks earlier this year because your girl here is starting her anti-aging routine! *winks*)

As always, I cut my patterned papers to size, ran it through my trusty Xyron Creative Station and adhered the patterned papers to the base bag.I also fussy-cut some elements from the same paper stack to coordinate with the background papers.

Once I was happy with the overall composition of the piece, I went in to add some texture. Like the two ribbon bows, buttons and bling. I kept everything relatively flat for easy storage in my drawer until the decorated paper bag is ready to be used.

What about you? Do you decorate a whole bunch of paper bags to use for last-minute gifts?

Very pretty! And to answer your question - no, I don't decorate shopping bags because: A) I don't shop anywhere nice enough that gives out pretty bags; and B) I carry a tote when I'm shopping so that I can refuse the bag.

This bag is so amazing. It is eco-friendly so I have decided to make to it at home and use it. Now it's time to avail water bottle for more information.
