Gift Bags

I put together thank you gift packages for a couple of wonderful friends. Two paper bags are held together and decorated on the front. Shown on the front is a homemade tag that swings open from a brad to hold my thank you message. Inside the homemade faux clay seals I stamped their (first name) initials. Inside the 2 pockets of the 2 bags holds many goodies including the few tags and paper clips pictured below. I also included a couple more tags and a decorated envelopes not shown. I hope they enjoy using the tags for gifts or scrapbooking as much as Ienjoyed putting them together.

I love making these paper clips. I changed the silver color with alcohol inks. The wooden shapes are held on with epoxy. (The shoe on the right has a flower behind it).

The metal paper clips were colored using alcohol ink.
