Quick and Easy to Make: Card & Gift Bag Set

It seems that we have a birthday every week this time of year so while I love to make cards that take hours to create, I don’t always have the time (especially with a new puppy in the house!)  Thank goodness for May Arts Ribbon!

 Quick and Easy to Make Card & Gift Bag Set

I began with this brown paper bag that unfortunately, looked like the machinery had taken a bite out of it.  Normally, I wouldn’t want to give a gift in this bag, but with the help of a scallop edge punch, that nasty edge became gift worthy packaging.

After punching, I covered the bag with designer paper then created my card using May Arts Shabby Flowers and May Arts Faux Suede Leaves in purple.

I wasn’t worried about the leaves and flowers getting crushed in an envelope because the card hangs on the outside of the envelope!
