With Bags of Love

Hello, it’s Ali with you today.

I was lucky enough to be taken to lunch at a two Michelin starred restaurant recently :) I wanted to give my Dad a little something to say thank you for such a lovely day. Believe it or not, he has a penchant for Aldi dark chocolate with hazelnuts so I picked up a few bars but wanted to make them look a bit more special…bring on the gift bag!

I have been playing with Garage Days this month. It is the perfect collection for the men in your life and has a lot of icons about dads…brilliant!

Bag 7

Gather your supplies together:

Bag 1

I am using Gas Tank 12×12: one of the 6×6 sheets, a die cut from the Garage Days 6×6 Paper Pad and a few of The Collectables plus some bits from my stash.

Punch the edge of your paper bag:

Bag 2

Stitch around the edge of the base shape:

Bag 3

Trim one of the edges so that it fits neatly into the gusset of the bag:

Bag 4

Layer up your ephemera till you’re happy with the look:

Bag 5

Stick everything down…mine moved a bit as I was gluing!

Bag 6

Finally tie some twine around the bag and punch a hole in one of The Collectables to use as a tag:

Bag 8

So simple, but so effective :)

Thanks so much for popping in today,

Ali x
