Easy Gift Bag

I have so many things to share with you but no time to upload everything. If I have time tonight I wil upload more.
I love it when friends and customers share their creations and ideas with me. People say that I inspire them but I feel that you all inspire me!
Friend and club member Stephanie, sent me this link after our recent club meeting where we used fabric on our cards. She remembered that I have a great fear of sewing. This link shows how to make fabric flowers.
I couldn't help but try it since it looked so easy and didn't involve sewing. The beautiful flower needed to embellish something so I put it onto a kraft gift bag. I stamped the bag with garden green ink using the snowflake from the Snow Swirled stamp set. I then put some real red grosgrain ribbon across the bag. I cut out a snowflake using brushed silver paper and the snowflake die for the sizzix big shot and then glued on the fabric flower. Voila! A handmade gift bag that anyone would love. Wouldn't it be great to cover a jam jar with matching fabric and fill the jar with some yummy treats and then include some handmade cards in co-ordinating colour?
