Decorating Gift Bags...Part 2!

Jennifer McGuire is one talented lady. After watching her tutorial on making pretty sweet-looking flowers, here, I was inspired to make some to use as the focal point on some gift bags.

As I mentioned before, these are very inexpensive and the flowers are easy to make, I promise. Instead of using Scor-tape (like it shows in the tutorial) I used something cheaper - Elmer's liquid glue. It is harder and messier to work with, but it is super strong when dry and it's what I have on hand. Also, since the flowers have a pretty decent depth, I ended up cutting slits in the gift bag and gluing them in so they didn't pop off the page so much. The tags were made from an old greeting card I had that matched the color of the flowers. The sentiment on the tags was printed from my computer onto white cardstock.

Thanks for looking and feel free to leave questions or comments below!

Until next time,
