Hi readers, I just wanted to quickly share with you all my little shabby chic altered gift bag with matching tag that I have created for Mad About Scrappin. I have used a few scraps from my stash and a plain white paper bag that I found in my local cheap shop. Here is what it looked like before.
....and here is the finished bag - all shabbied up!. I have used some ephemera I found on pinterest; Paper flowers; Seam binding; white lace and pearl trim. All of these items can be found in the Mad About Scrappin shop. I have also tucked in a small crocheted heart.
I have not forgotten the back of the bag and just covered it with more of the scraps and some printed ephemera.
To create that tag I covered some heavy chipboard with more scraps from my stash and then a layer of cheese cloth. I inked the edges again using Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet. I added a bow and another tiny pale pink forget-me-knot. I matted a vintage photo and tucked it in behind a crocheted flower. I added a border using some of the gorgeous cotton lace and baby pink seam binding.
That is my shabby share for you all this week. I hope you have a go at doing these bags. They are quick n easy AND make a really unique gift giving idea.
Till next time remember to .....
