My gift bag sets are now complete! WOOHOO!! *okie loves being able to move on to a new project* I only made 8 of the birthday ones, simply because.....I ran out of bags!
I used paper from the Imaginisce All Kinds of Happy stack I had gotten from Oh My Crafts last spring. The stack was great for this project since it had chipboard shapes and stickers in the stack. I turned some of the bags around so you could see the backs, the fronts are decorated like the fronts of the others with the same paper. The less decorative paper came from my friend Linda who had bought a stack of paper at Sams. I was lucky enough there was plenty of different colors for me to use that went with the birthday paper.

I did use some fairway Stardream paper on the strip of the purple plaid bags. I also used it for the handles.
On the pink bags I cut ribbon at a slant to get it through the button and then tied it. I used a glue dot to apply it to the chipboard shape.
I really like the pink flower patterned paper, I think it ties in nicely with the gift patterned paper. Just for a little touch of something I added a rhinestone to the cupcake on the chipboard shape.
I used some pink Stardream mica on the green bag. The stamp cupcake is with the Stardream mica as well and was done with a set that came with Cuttlebug bundles. I had to emboss several different times to get the cupcake different colors and then cut by hand. I think it turned out pretty nice.
I have 4 sets of gift bags that include generic, Christmas and birthday. Each set has 8 bags. I think they will make great prizes for my Christmas party!!
Now I am off to see what I can make now.......well after I make dinner *okie totally hates having to cook*.
