bags of fun !!

ive made birthday gift bags for some loved ones that i thought i would share with you all. i filled this one with a handmade soap and a flannel with a coordinating wrap. i think it makes a nice little gift, with the bag and tag adding the handmade, personal touch. 

i bought these kraft bags and cut the tags from kraft cardstock to match, tied on with rafia. i simply stamped the bags front and back and decorated the tag to match. all of the stamping is done with archival coloured inks and some of the bags have extra detail i hand-painted using cosmic shimmer iridescent water colour paint. the happy birthday message on the tags is from the made for you stamp set by stampin up!.

you can use any of your stamps and pick the colour scheme to suit the person its for. its up to you what you fill them with. some of these have handmade soaps, but others have shop bought smellies. so dont worry if you cant make it yourself there are plenty of places to buy lovely handmade treats. you could even put chocolates or other goodies in and size the bag accordingly.

the good life forever friends clear stamps and inkadinkado rockstar clear stamps 
papermania nostalgia classic cars clear stamps and pigeon from gorguss girls 
stampin up! summer solstice and mixed bunch stamp sets 

im sure the person you send it to will appreciate the thought that has gone into it
