Gift bags galore (featuring paper by Sabor)!!!

Festive gift bags featuring Sabor paper!  
Design by Judy Wood


My designer gift bags are featured in a little shop in Old Town Scottsdale, for Spring, I decided to have a little fun using Sabor papers!

Cut a 12x12 Sabor paper in six inch squares. Find a pattern using both sides of the double side paper that’s pleasing to the eye.

Use Aleene's Tacky Glue to glue squares onto any size gift bag (available at most craft stores, or UPcycle).

I use a heavy book after applying glue to make sure nothing shifts and the bag doesn’t warp.  Wait about 15 minutes before moving the book.
I found two of the squares didn’t fit as flush as I would have liked, so I used some black and white ribbon to cover up the white of the bag.  Add matching fabric flowers.

Add bright colored ribbons, tissue paper and add gift(s)!  Great for Graduations, Birthdays, baby showers, wedding gifts, or any occasion!   

One fun idea is to fill the bag with your favorite homemade salsa, add chips!  Another idea is to put all the ingredients you need for enchiladas and gift to a neighbor or friend!  ENJOY!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
