House Warming Gift Bag

This week I was in need of gift wrap for a house warming gift!  Today I have the bag I created for my gift.  I cannot share what is inside because the person receiving it is a member of the Altered Pages Facebook group!
 
 
I wanted it to look like a house... the blue pattern paper topper is the scalloped edged roof and the pink area is similar to a wall paper! 
 

With the bag flat adhere the pink pattern paper using a glue stick.  Arrange items you would like to embellish your bag:
Gold Opulence Stickers (clock and "Time to Celebrate"), KaiserCraft Embellishment Bingo Card Packand Glitz Whatnots ~ Yours Truly (frame and queen with heart staff)


Using tacky glue attach the Petaloo Flowers.
 

 Fold the blue paper at 8 inches, measure the width needed to fit over the handles of the bag.  Cut a slit 2 inches longer than your measurement and an inch wide. Be sure your gift is in the bag before putting the topper on.
 
 
To make the Specialty Tag ink edges with Gold Delicata Ink, heat emboss with Clear Embossing Powder. Cut computer written words, ink edges and adhere to card with glue stick.

The bag needed a BIG bow... TULLE was perfect to top off the bag! Tie the tag on the handle of the bag with a strip of tulle. 
 
 
Supplies:
Brown paper bag with handle
Pattern Paper The Robin's Nest
Gold Opulence Stickers (clock and "Time to Celebrate")
Glitz Whatnots ~ Yours Truly (frame and queen with heart staff)
Clear Embossing Powder
Computer written words
 

Glitz Whatnots ~ Yours Truly (frame and queen with heart staff)
 
AND
 
THAT's a WRAP!
