Brown Paper Bag Gift Bags!!!!

I have been known to use any paper bag with a ribbon in a pinch.... I love altering brown paper bags... you can spruce up any size bag.  Here are a couple of ideas! 

Recently I shared these sweet bags on the Altered Pages blog... Both have already been used for gifts and the recipients loved them! 
 
 
 
You could use these for party favors or gift giving depending on the size bags you use!  Today I am using brown lunch bags.
 
 
 
Cut pattern paper for base from Glitz 8x8 Pattern Cardstock Shine in My Soul to fit bag, ink edges.  Cut second piece t be the banner, ink edges.  Adhere to paper bag with Double stick tape.
 
 

 
For the first bag, cut image from Altered Pages Collage Sheet Pets on Parade ink edges and adhere to bag with Glue Stick.

 
For the second bag cut image from Altered Pages Collage Sheet Drive me Anywhere but Here ink edges and adhere to bag with Glue Stick.

 
Mist the white doily with desired colors, the intention here was to look a bit distressed.
 
 
 The first bag,  "Pets on Parade" is topped with a yellow doily folded in half, two holes punched through the bag and doily, then the tulle is pulled through the holes and a nice big bow is tied.
 
 
 
"Drive me Anywhere but Here" is topped with the doily (folded in half) that has been sprayed with mist.  Two holes punched through the bag and doily, then the sheer ribbon is pulled through the holes and a nice bow is tied.  I think this would be a perfect bag to put some chocolate for a friend!!!


You could add flowers, dew drops, chipboard, buttons and more... let your creative mind work magic!
