Simple Birthday Bag

Enabler alert: ABC Toys and Crafts has Martha Stewart punches on sale through midnight on 3/18/11.  24% off retail and the selection is great too!

I made this simple gift bag with some new Hero Arts stamps  I got recently.  I wanted to keep it simple and elegant and quick to put together.  I love having bags like this on hand when an unexpected birthday pops up. By unexpected, I mean that I forgot. :)



I almost always have a stash of white or kraft bags hanging around and I get mine at JoAnn's. I used my Simple Scallop edge punch (Martha Stewart) and used it on the tag too--i just covered up the little holes to give it a different look.

The Happy Birthday challenge is still moving right along, so link up your birthday entries for a chance to win up to $25 credit in the ABC Toys and Crafts store!  



Have a good one!


Annie

Supplies: Sweet Blush, Dark Chocolate cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Pink ribbon by Offray; Layered Flowers and Yummy Treats stamp sets (Hero Arts) ; Chocolate Chip ink (SU!), Versamark ink, twine (May Arts).
