Well here is a quick project which we did on the Crafty weekend.
First of all we took a kraft brown paper bag and inked the edges with brown distress ink pad. Then we took 2 pieces of patterned paper about 3-4 inches deep and the width of the bag. Again these were inked and then attached to the bag, back and front.
Then with a contrasting piece of paper, we punched a decorative edge and then attached them top and bottom of our patterned paper.
And there you have it, a lovely gift bag to give someone special a present in.
The papers used were from Basic Grey's Picaddilly Range, and Gwen at The Stamp Pad has the range of papers and some, if not all of the embellishments in.
