Gift bag


Hello lovelies!
Zoey’s here with a super quick idea for packaging a gift for a friend.
Here’s what we will need:

Stamps :

Inks/Colors :

Stencil/Paste :

Embellishments :

  • Twine


I covered a small tag with a piece of Basic Grey Paper from the collection “Soleil” , I ripped the borders and then I glued the paper to the tag. I stamped my flower from the stamp set “Hero Arts Making the world a better place” . I love this flower and I love this stamp set because it has the flower outline and also a stamps for shadow — which make coloring way easy! I colored the stamped image using daubers and water.



I then stamped my sentiment over a piece of cardstock. For the sentiment i used a stamp called Hero Arts Be Happy , I love this stamp set for packaging because it has some cute sentiments that kinda look like washi tape! Check it out, IT IS ON SALE! I fussy cut it and the adhered to the tag using foam adhesive to give some dimension.


I added Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Powder over my paper bag through the stencil Hero Arts Stencil Tile Works and I let it dry.
For the next step, make sure that the Embossing powder is well dry because I will then add water on it.
I also stamped few random flower stamp (from the previous stamp set) here and there to fill the spaces.


I colored the background of the bag by adding water to the colors. I was looking for a watercolor kinda look.
I then added the tag to the paper bag with the twine.
And there we go a quick and easy packaging for a gift!



I hope you were inspired!
