Gift Bag, matching card and ribbon flowers!

Good morning! Here I am again at "She's a Sassy Lady" sharing more fun ideas. Today I am showing you how to decorate a gift bag, make a matching card and how to make ribbon flowers. This is what they look like  when you are done:

I bought a medium size white gift bag with handles.

I chose cardstock and cut two panels to cover the front and back of the bag.

This is what it looks like when it's done:

I glued some trimming to both sides of the bag:

I also tied ribbons all over both handles to match my paper:


I punched 3 circles sizes 1 1/4" - 1 3/8" -  and 2 "

Cut 8 strips of ribbon about 2 1/2" long

Glue unto the 2 1/2 circle.

Do the same with the 1 3/8 circle using a different color ribbon.

Glue on top of the larger circle

Put lots of tacky glue on the smaller circle. Start twisting your ribbon until you have covered the entire circle.

Glue unto center of layered flower.

Glue unto bag.

I made tags for the bag and the card using tag punches.

I also punched some butterflies.

I made a card using the leftover papers and embellished it with ribbons, a tag, a butterfly and embellished it with pearls.

Here is your beautiful final product.
