We have had a few weeks off to chill over Christmas but are back with the first of this years challenge.
The theme is Make/decorate a gift bag.
Here is what I did...

I took a ready-made brown paper gift bag and dry brushed white gesso roughly over the front, back, sides and handles of the bag.
I took a piece of thick paper and screwed it up to put creases in it then covered it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and sprayed it with water. I randomly stamped it with a florish stamp and Versafine Vintage Sepia ink to create a subtle effect. Then adhered it to the front centre of the gift bag.

I used some lace ribbon layered with brown woven ribbon and stuck it along the bottom half of the inked card. I then arranged a floral embellishment with paper flowers, paper cord, leaves and an old chain.

I did the same at the top of the bag on the handle and added an organza ribbon bow.
