This started out as a plain white gift bag. I used the cherry stamp from SU's Tart & Tangy. I used markers to color it red and green and then stamped all over the bag. It wasn't fun but I loved the way it turned out. I have always liked red and black so I added black and loved it even more. I used my Nestabilities to make the large circles for the tag. I used many different ribbons to decorate the handles. I almost didn't want to give it away!
My Spring Buddy's favorite scent was Clean Linen so I got her a candle, but it wouldn't fit in her mailbox so I had to put it in a bag with her name on it. Since I tried to keep the theme of cherries with all her stuff I had to find a way to use this bag and put cherries on it. It had a label I needed to cover up so here is the result. I like the way this one turned out too!
The final gift was several bags of dried fruit. I bought a red gift bag that I was going to stuff with tissue paper that I stamped cherries on. I realized that I didn't have any tissue paper. UGH! So I found this basket and improvised. I wrapped a ribbon around it for a little more pizazz...I also made a pinwheel and a coaster notebook and pen. I hope she enjoyed all her gifts as much as I enjoyed making them.
