This week's quick decorated paper bag (a tutorial)

Don't you love it when you find "new" (technically old) stuff in your stash that you have to want to use immediately? *winks* For this decorated paper bag project, it was the large blue satin bloom from an old hair tie that had seen better days.

I started with this large YSL paper bag that I wanted to add to my stash of decorated paper bags. You know how those get dwindled down very quickly and how handy it is to have a decent read-to-use collection to select from. *LOL*

I cut 2 sheets of floral patterned paper (this one has embossed glittery bits!), ran it through my trusty Xyron Creative Station for an even layer of adhesive, then adhered to the paper bag. After that I decided to jazz up the top and bottom edges with pearl trim (also recently re-discovered while reorganizing my stash). I also added the pearl trim to the handles of the paper bag.

Next, it was time to audition other blooms to match my main bloom based on the colours from the patterned paper.

Then I started to assemble my main cluster with the blooms and leaves.

I finished by creating 2 smaller bloom clusters.

There you have it, a really quick and easy decorated paper bag.

Happy weekend friends!:)

Such a gorgeous remake. I love how you coordinated the blooms with the patterned paper. The black makes everything classy and goes well with the embellishments. Excellent!

Wow! I think YSL should employ you as their new bag designer! Your version is far better than the original. ;)
