Super Easy Gift Bag Re-Do

Yeah... so, that was about as good of a comeback as, say, New Kids on the Block.  Ohwell.  Take #357!

I'll just cut to the chase with this one. I have a closet full of gift bags. Yet somehow, I needed -- and couldn't find in my stash -- two gift bags for two little girls' birthday gifts.  To keep the hubs from saying "I TOLD you we needed gift bags while at Target," I decided to just re-do a couple that I had on hand. And it took less than 10 minutes, using stuff I already had.

I grabbed two bags, paper flowers and rhinestones that I had from an unfinished project.


I only needed to cover up an old tag that I couldn't get to peel off, otherwise the bags were in great shape.




Since my craft glue was dried up (of course), I simply stapled the flowers on...



Then added a rhinestone to the center of each flower to cover up the staples.



Not too shabby, huh?  Then I did the same for bag #2.



I made individual tags by cutting out each girl's initial using scrapbook paper, then tying to each bag.



Definitely a pretty way to save a few bucks!  And, hopefully it won't be another month before I post again ;)
