Who Care's What's Inside...

...when the bag is this cute! I had so much fun decorating this gift bag.

I scored a pack of 13 of these plain kraft gift bags from Michaels for under 5 dollars. I thought they would make the perfect 3d item for Stamp Club this past weekend. I started by using the Stampin' Up! Circle Circus stamp set, along with the Stamp-a-majig, to create two different background papers. I then adhered them together, wrapped with ribbon, and used dimensionals to adhere to the front of the bag. To finish it off, I made a matching little gift tag to hang from the handle. I added the buttons as an after thought, but am now having second thoughts about them. What do you think, should they go?
