Some gift bags out of Petals and Paisleys

I made these gift bags tonight after being inspired by a fellow demonstrator at the Atlanta Regionals. The little square tote was her workshop wow! she presented. I think it is sweet. It is a 4x 8 1/2 piece of designer series paper scored at 3 1/2 and 5. You punch the handle with the word window punch and put a medium cello bag inside with treats. Very easy and sweet.

Specs: petals and paisley paper, prima flowers, silver brads, word window punch, grosgrain ribbons, and polka dot and paisley stamp set for the Happy.

The circle tote is an idea I got from Michelle Fisher on Splitcoast. She is soooo creative and talented. While the idea is hers, the design on this is mine. Again use a pot lid or other circle object and cut out two circles with the bottoms cut off out of the designer series paper or cardstock which you can wheel or cover with DS paper. You use a small lunch sack inside for the bag part to put a gift in. I wheeled the tissue paper with the Petals wheel.

Specs: petals and paisley paper, old olive strip stamped with polka dot and paisley background, petals wheel, saffron and taken with teal inks, round tab punch, "sweet" sticker from Little Reminders accents and elements tin, flower punch, large oval punch, and round tag punch (I can't remember the name for this punch right off hand), brads.
