Decorated plain gift bag using Christmas Gift printable journal - DESIGN TEAM LEADER ~ Rhonda Ratliff

Hello Everyone...
Today I am doing a tutiorial on decorating a plain gift bag using the
Now onto viewing my project which was inspired by a gift bag I seen on
facebook... hope you like it!!!
First I began with just one of the many
pages to choose from in the journal... I also decided to use
one of tags that is the journal for a note card on the gift...
I also printed 2 sheets of the image as we
move along you'll see why I have done this!
The tag I folded in half and used my ATG gun to seal it closed!

After, I distressed the edges of my note card on both sides.

Next I took a rounded object.... my ink stamp holder in this case,
 to give me a guide so I cut with my wavey sissors. I took one of the
printed sheets, flipped the page over so I could draw my guide
too and this one will give me my "flap" for the "pocket"!!

Then I distressed the edges... of course using my
favorite distressing ink, Tim Holtz' Vintage Photo!!

 I repeated this step making it about 1/4 inch larger, (but kept the top straight
edge of both the printable and cardtock flush), with my
COREdinations cardstock in the color MERRY.
Next I glued this to the second sheet making it look
like a pocket and then glued the whole sheet to another
sheet of the same cardstock and then distressed that.

 I glued some lace and added a button and
added a bit of paint to the berries for some depth!

Next I added the "pocket" to front of a plain craft gift bag... which I
got at the dollar tree. They were like 5/$1.00... an awesome deal!!

 I added some more lace and flat back pearls.

Then I went on a scavenger hunt through all my embellies
and flowers to decide on what I wanted to!!

Tadaaa.... Here is my gift bag!!!... I added the tag on with some
raffia, then spayed the flowers and the front with perfect pearls for some shimmer!!!
