 Hello everyone,

Welcome to the New Year at AS YOU LIKE IT and time for a new challenge of...

" Favourite way to Decorate a gift bag, box, tag, or gift, anything like that really..."

I'm cheap....I buy shopping bags for 20cents at Supermarket and decorate them as fast as I can..

A good size, not too big and holds boxes of biscuits and other stuff really well..

Boxes of beer is another story, the bags are strong but not that strong..I found that out!!!

My favourite embellishment is ribbons and bells, I love my bags to jingle..

My daughters had to be pink..

I splattered them to death, then added giant giant die cut snowflakes..

and my Merry Christmas die..

This bag was for my hairdresser and it was in my stash, so fluffed it up too..

And there they all were along my extra empty storage cubes!!!!before the big day, and those cubes are still empty, I think I need to fix that problem real quick..

So do pop over and share your your gift bag etc embellishments and tell us why..

Thanks you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

If you fell like a scroll I have another DT project or 2 down below..

Brilliant sized bags Chrissy. We only get the lunch bag size over here which are fine for smaller gifts. Love how you decorated them especially the little bell! Wonder what you will get to fill those cubes!!
