Yes, my name is Michelle and I have a paper addiction. Sometimes this extends to other things like gift bags. When I was at the Dollar Tree last week, I passed the gift bags and this Red Flower was very striking and caught my attention.
It immediately made me think of a Christmas Flower and I knew I wanted the bag. As I stood there, I found another bag and then it hit me. Why not use these pieces to make a piece of DIY art work.
I mean, you can't beat it for a buck!
So I started with a piece of pressed board, that I spray painted Glossy Black.
I cut this gift bag to fit to size.
Once the paint was dry, I used Modge Podge to attach a red piece of paper, also cut to size. I let that layer dry and then I attached the flower piece directly on top of that. After a few layers of Modge Podge on top and plenty of drying time, I was able to add the ribbon to hang the piece. Overall, I'm really happy with it.
I also mentioned a second bag. I simply cut down that bag and added it to a Thrift Store frame. $2.99 for the frame, 1.00 for the bag and I have a perfect piece to put in my living area downstairs.
So next time you see a bag that catches your eye,
don't just buy it to give away...Hang it on your Wall!
