Upcycling shop bags into easy gift bags

Some stores give you the nicest paper bags; I always save the ones that are plain or with a store design so small it's easily covered up. Those are the ones that make excellent gift bags. This one uses the same papers and matches the card in my last post. It held the gift I gave to my friend.

Supply List
Paper—upcycled shop bag, Marianne Design Pretty Papers Bloc, cardstock
Dies—Artemio squares
Embellishments—butterfly, button, ribbon, twine

  3. I've never thought about doing this with plain bags - what a great idea!

  4. C'est une très bonne idée de leur donner une deuxième vie aux sacs... Très réussi la déco, il et splendide!

  5. What a beautiful bow! Lovely transformation of this simple bag! How fun!
