Friendship Week - gift bag!

Good Monday Morning!

Today I'm sharing a gift bag idea.  A simple way to add a little 'pretty' to those plain Dollar Store gift bags!

Circle sentiment from Joy's Life, 
I used double sided cardstock from
paper pack!

**The other side of my tag!**

Two sided flower tag...
You can use your Cricut to quickly cut circles from double-sided paper while you're stamping your sentiments!  I used my Nesties for my scallop cork circles.

Attach small circles (1inch) around large circle (2.5 inch) to create a flower, you'll create two flowers. Using 3D Dots (adhesive foam discs), attach the two flowers back to back, matching paper sides.  *We're using double sided paper so if they do not line up exactly, you are still seeing the same pattern.  You can see what I mean by looking at my above photos up close!

To attach to gift bag, tie twine between the flowers, around the center 3D Dot!

Really cute! Love the cork and love how the tag just pops off the background of the bag. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Love your gift bag! I love seeing ways people dress up ordinary things. I never thought to use cork board in any other way than using push-pins with it. You're so creative!
