Embellished Gift Bags

Hello, Ann here from Annmakes and the Creative Paperclay® Design Team.  Today I want to show you how I turned a plain white paper gift bag into a cute bag.  Use it for a gift and the recipient can reuse it as cute storage, or a tote.

To make the embellishments I covered some chipboard pieces with a nice thick layer of clay.  Once dry I sanded any nicks I had made.  Then I painted them with Fluid acrylic paints.  I also used a black pen to add more details.

Each piece was given a coat of Liquid Glass to make them hard and shiny.

The three pieces were glued onto the card stock which was also adhered to the bag with double sided adhesive.
