This month  are theme is : Handmade Flowers-only things you find around the house.Recycle - Reuse - Rejoice!
Let me share a few steps and let you know how I created these GIFT BAGS for a few EASTER surprises.


 I had these sheets of designer tissue paper from a gift I had received.Isn't it a shame how once these are wrinkled you hate to use them or throw them about some quick flowers to adorn some new gift packages?How simple to lay the tissue sheets together and fold them to fit the size of my sizzix tattered florals die.

 You really have to be careful when you pull the die plates away! There is electricity and they will scatter!

First I separated the one color tissue and started layering with a fast drying glue

The last thing I did was make some quick tags to add to the bags... 
Pulling out one of my favorite companies of stamps Labranche silicone stamps-Winged Collage.
Memento angel Pink ink was the background
Memento Tuxedo Black for the Hero Arts -Small greetings sentiment.

Some of the flowers were added on the bag and some were added to the tag...quick and easy.
Hope you take a minute to leave a comment and let me know you were here. Then check out the other projects made my so many talented crafters...just click on the DCC link in my sidebar.
