Hello there fellow crafters!!! Welcome to Frosted Designs "Gift of Giving" Blog Hop!
As you hop along, you will notice each Design Team member has a "secret" word on their blog that makes a quote (my secret word is at the bottom of this post:). After you've completed the hop, go to the Frosted Designs blog and leave us a comment letting us know. One winner will be randomly selected from the comments to win a $20.00 Gift Certificate to the Frosted Designs Store!!!!
With the holiday season lurking just around the corner, we decided to give our members some ideas for fabulous handmade items that can be gifted this year!
I decided to decorate a paper bag in order to use it as a gift bag. I used a huge tag as a base to add my layers and glued some twine at the back, so as to place it to the bag. It also helps to close the bag. Here is the tag...
As you can see I used the big star with the word 'Awesome' from the Heidi Swapp watercolor tag set. This star is made of watercolor cardstock and has a perfect surface to work with many different media on it. I wanted to keep it simple this time and put away my mixed media stuff, but if you want to see what else you can do with it with mixed media techniques you can see this post.
So, let's go to the fun part now:
