Easy Gift Bag

My daughter has a birthday party to go to tonight, so I quickly made up this easy gift bag! I must have received one previously in a swap or something because I had one in a pile of cards and stuff in my stamping room, but don't know where it came from nor who the original designer might be (if there is someone to give credit to for the design!) If this bag design has a name, I'd love to know! Anyway, I used just a plain white paper lunch bag, and cut it so that it is 7" tall. The front piece of cardstock is cut the width of the bag (5 1/4") by 7" tall. The back piece is cut 5 1/4" by 8 1/2" and was scored at 7 1/8" for the fold over the top. The cardstock I used is Stampin' Up Cool Caribbean, Chocolate Chip and generic white. I stamped swirls from my Kitchen Sink Stamps Backgrounds & Borders set using Versamagic Sea Breeze ink. Happy Birthday is from Kitchen Sink Stamps 3-Step Daisy set and is stamped with Versamagic Jumbo Java and embossed with clear embossing powder. The scallops on the Chocolate Chip piece under the flap was punched with my corner rounder punch. The little card is 2 3/4" square and is stamped with the medium flower from my Kitchen Sink Stamps 3-Step Daisy set in Versamagic Sea Breeze, Aegean Blue, and Jumbo Java. The edges around the main image are inked with SU! Cool Caribbean, and the piece is matted on a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock punched with my Marvy giga scalloped square. I finished off the bag by punching a hole and threading a piece of chocolate brown satin ribbon through it.

My daughter is at a volleyball game, so she has yet to see this! When she does she's probably not going to want to give the gift! :)

Thanks for looking!

Great job on the whip-it-up bag gift! It's cute, and I really like that daisy from Kitchen Sink.
