Happy Monday to you all! Today the Crafty Secrets Design Team has a fun challenge for you! The challenge is to take an ordinary envelope and make it a gift bag! Pretty cool huh? ; ) I have a link to a tutorial in just a little bit for you, so you can make your very own!
I used a kraft envelope and added a few swipes of white acrylic paint to the sides. I also stamped the flowers using the Lacey Patterns set, and added clear embossing powder to give a bit of texture to the bag. The angel was stamped using the Born to Fly stamp set on cream cardstock and colored in with my Copic Markers. I carefully cut her out. Her dress was paper pieced using a piece of paper I printed from the Vintage CD collection. I added some bubble gum Stickles to her neckline and the waist of the dress.
I stamped the sentiment, also from the Born to Fly set, on vellum with Staz On ink and hand cut the banner. Some seam binding and a doily were added to dress up my bag.
