Shopping Bag to Gift Bag

I love the whole re-use, re-purpose idea. Not only because I am a crafter who doesn't mind saving some cash. I don't like to spend money on gift packaging either.

To make this cute gift bag I re-used a shopping bag from one of my favorite local kitchen stores. It happens to be a great shade of green but even the brown bags work great for this.

I used some Stampin' Up! scrapbook paper, stickers, ribbon and adhesive - So easy!
You can be creative - Just make sure to cover the writing and pictures on the bag on both sides.
 I used talcum powder on the back of the stickers so I could pop them up with some dimensionals.

Supplies used:
*Nursery Nest Designer Series Paper #122347
*Nursery Nest Quick Accents #122370
*1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon - Marina Mist #119772
