Cutest Bag EVER!

If you've seen the June??? issue of Stampin' Success, then this is where you've probably seen this bag before. I say June??? because I can't find my copy because my craft room is so stinkin' messy. Anyway, my upline's upline made one, and it was so cute and she said it was super easy.

I thought they would make a really cute gift bag for my stamp club ladies, since it was our last club meeting. I made 7 of them (one for me to keep). They turned out really cute, and they were easy to make.

First I stamped the stems using Old Olive Craft ink. Then I used Stampin' Up's! flower fusion to do the flowers. This is the first time I've used them, and I love them! Some I just put on using a brad, the others I found that using a glue gun works great and has a faster dry time than other adhesives. To adhere the ribbon, I used Stitch Witchery. Got it Walmart. It's a fusible bond that you simply iron on. And that's it! I might add that I got the canvas bags at Michaels.

I will definitely be toting this little beaut' around.

Inside I loaded them up with goodies. A personalized card, Ghiradelli chocolate bar, gum, sticky Post It Notes, and some Stampin' Up! chapstick.
