Birthday Bags and Tags

I made these bags from painted brown paper sheeting. Layers and layers of paint using various techniques and stamping. The painted sheet was then covered in clear contact and a bag pattern and straps were cut from this.I've then sewn them into handy carry bags for the birthday girls, Judy and Marilena to that contain their gifts and is usable afterwards as well.

The tags were made firstly by stamping in layers and glueing a paper serviette at the bottom, a die cut branch and little girl image fixed in place then wax ironed over top and buffed for a lovely shine, as inspired by a recent project in The Craft Stamper.
