Easy peasy gift bags


In only a couple minutes, I was able to take a plain gift bag and make it a bit more special by using the butterfly trio dies to cut areas on the bag and then I adhered some Venetian patterned cardstock in bellini, lido, and burano to the inside of the bag.  Little pops of color!  To finish things off, I punched two holes for the ribbon and used two types of ribbon.  Easy peasy, done and out the door in no time.

All supplies are A Muse

Tomorrow the 2012 catalog will be released!  Excited?  I know I am!
