pretty packaging

That's what I've been upto. Thought I would decorating some gift bags. I find that having lots of stuff makes it hard to create cos I just never can decide what to use ha .
This week at papertake weekly they wanted spots n dots. So I grabbed a couple of scrap pieces of paper to decorate my bags with.

Over at let's craft and create they are wanting ribbon or twine or both, I've gone with ribbon on my creations.
Over at stamping sensations anything goes

I created my own epoxy type embellies using glossy accents. I created a cute shaker on this bag with some little silver sequins inside.

The oh hello stamp is su.

Hugs & kisses stamp is rachelle miller. The papers are from a really old anna griffin set. I really enjoyed decorating these bags and I think I'm definitely going to be decorating more. How great would they be for christmas. I wouldn't mind doing 24 as a countdown to christmas for the chloe monster with a little gift in each day. These bags are actually just the right size to hold a card too, so you could use these instead of an envelope. I have some smaller glassine bags which maybe better for the Christmas treats :) listen at me talking about christmas when it's only August ha! I love creating at christmas though especially with christmas songs playing ( little to early for the Christmas music yet though hehe)
