For today's Growing in Unity (GIU) (see my Day 1 post for the background on GIU) project I used two different sets of Unity stamps and scrapbooking paper to alter a plain white gift bag. I LOVE this sentiment and it makes this gift bag usable for many occasions. Altering (and up-cycling) gift and paper bags is a great way to use all that scrapbooking paper you've been collecting. Add some wonderful Unity stamps and you have a gift wrapping anyone would love to receive.
Gift Bag: You can up-cycle any store bag or purchase plain bags at Michael's.
Paper: The patterned paper was first printed as part of the first American Crafts Dear Lizzy collection. But I recently found it at Michael's under the Recollections brand. Also used Bazzil & Hambly cardstock.
Lace: The Piece by Piece
Dies: Spellbinders cirlce & scallop dies for the gift tag
Don't forget to leave a comment today and everyday this week for a chance to win two Unity Itty Bitty stamps of your choice - a gift from Unity Stamp Co.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
