You all know how much I LOVE my gift bags.  Decorating a plain brown kraft bag and making it into something special and personal is so much fun.  I think I am slightly addicted to this fun crafting method ;) For today's project I used Spellbinders die templates and Unity stamps with and a few pieces of patterned paper - here are the deets:

Spellbinders Paper Arts Supplies:

Unity Stamp Company
  • Blossom Stackers (Samantha Walker)
Other: Pebble's Paper, Ribbon, Kraft Bag, The Girls Loft Paper.
