My friend, Jan Mougel, is a fellow Glitter Queen team member and she showed us during the blog hop how to make an ADORABLE GIFT BAG from 2 sheets of designer series paper.  Not only did she tell us how to do it, but she also made a video for us.  At my advancing age, I find I am getting to be more and more a visual learner.  That video was done so very well that I immediately took out my score tool and made the gift bag!!  Thanks so much JAN.  If you want to see her video, please visit her at: 

 I made this gift bag to put a fun valentine in for a friend of mine.  Not only is the candy yummy, but she will receive a handcrafted gift bag from me too!!

I made this bag from the FREE SYCAMORE STREET DSP from the Sale-a-Bration flyer.  You can choose to get this FREE with a $50 order of any products you desire.

I used the FREE RIBBON for the handles of the gift bag.  The buttons and the ribbon come together as ONE FREE ITEM through Sale-a-Bration.  They match the colors used in the designer paper.

I stamped Papillion Potpourri stamp set and colored it in with my markers, then used the butterfly punch and glued it on the bag.

Thanks again to JAN for sharing her expertise with us all.  Make some of these fun bags for your gifts to friends and family soon!!

Come on, get creative y'all!!  Let me know if I can help you, ya hear?
