Dad's Gift Bag Gift

I have another really quick share for you - this one is from Father's Day. I used patterned paper to decorate a gift bag, and inside the bag was a some of his favourite candy.  We wanted to add our gift of money and not just tuck it into the card, so I came up with this idea.

I used a Tim Holtz die to cut the little bag out of the same patterned paper, and also an ATC die.  I inked the edges of the ATC and attached it to the front of the little bag, then used the PTI dies to cut the letters DAD. I also die cut the bird/branch and punched a label (Stampin' Up) out of black cardstock.

Once the gift was rolled and tucked into the bag, I attached the folded black label & punched a hole through all the layers. Then I attached it all to the handle of the gift bag. Worked like a charm, and he got a kick out of the way his gift was packaged.

It's a busy day today, but hopefully tomorrow I will be able to get at least a few minutes in my studio.

Thanks for stopping by today!
