a little gift inside...

Hello friends! Continuing on this week with the 'little' things for our teachers, for National Teacher's Appreciation Week.  For tomorrows gift for the teacher, we are to 'Bring them an apple'. ;) I'll reveal what I did for the 'apple' part a little later. Last year,  I brought C's teacher an apple pie ~ so I changed it up a bit this yr. ;) Below, however, is a SUPER quick decoration on the gift bag.

And, seriously, this was very quick since I was a little pressed for time today.  Anyone can do this - in 10 minutes:

  1. Take a small, glassine bag, decorate the entire front with one sheet of your favorite patterned papers.  
  2. Stamp a simple sentiment on a tag.  
  3. Enclose the gift, wrap a small doily on top of the folded bag. Punch a hole directly through the doily and bag.  
  4. Tie the twine through the hole and attach tag.
  5. Add butterfly clothespin.
  6. Adhere two paper flowers on top of tag.

Love super easy decorations and it still dresses up the plain bag just a touch.

Sentiment stamp: Mama Elephant/Confetti.
Patterned Paper: Graphic45.
Craft supply: Paper flowers, glassine bag (cooking/bakery section of store), manilla tag, doily.
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black.
Hole puncher.
