Bella Gift Bag by Laura C

I love the way stamping can "dress up" a plain and simple item, like
this inexpensive dollar store gift bag. With just a little bit of paper
and ink, it's a great addition to any gift!!

The new In Style Stamps at Cutters Creek are awesome! I chose
to use "Bella" and stamped her in embossing ink, and embossed in
black on a 7&3/4" by 4" piece of kraft cardstock. I also stamped
her in Memento Tuxedo Black on Bazzill Simply Smooth White
Cardstock. The "Bella" on the white cardstock, was colored with
Copic Markers: R17 & R27 for her dress and headband, C7 & 100
for her shoes, E57 & E33 for her hair, and E51 for her skin.

The bag is put together using the new Graphic 45 Curtain Call
paper, each pattern is cut 7&3/4" by 3", inked with Vintage Photo
Distress Ink, and adhered to the bag using Scor-Tape. The
embossed "Bella" piece was inked and then adhered to the middle
of the bag. The gorgeous "frame" is the new Fleur De Lis Squares
from Spellbinders cut from black cardstock, and then adhered
with foam tape. The colored Bella is cut out and adhered with foam
tape as well. A lacey border punch and red ribbon finish the project.

A great choice for a birthday, Mother's Day, or any special gift
giving occasion!! Keep an eye out for the matching card in a few
