Scraps Blog Hop

Welcome to the Scraps Blog Hop... If you came from the A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Jenny at Crazy About Cricut you're in the right place. If you just happened upon my blog and would like to play along, start at the beginning at www.craftycardgallery.blogspot​.com

The purpose of this hop is to help you use up some of your scraps. I'm sure you've got your fair share - I know I do! You'll see 30 talented crafters coming up with unique ways to use their scraps. Some may share tips on how they store their scraps as well! 
 
Be sure to visit all the blogs & leave comments, as there will be a grand prize, a $50 credit to the Designs on Cloud 9 store, http://www.designsoncloud9.com​/  sponsored by Michelle of Designs on Cloud 9. To win the grand prize, you must comment on and become a follower of all the blogs.
For my project, I decided to turn a plain white gift bag into a CUTE decorated gift bag! It was super simple and super quick to make! 
 I used my glue stick and ran glue across the top of the bag . Next, I cut a 3 inch strip of tissue and folded it along the top. Following the tissue, I cut a 2.5 inch strip of my SCRAP black glitter paper and used my MS border punch and added it to the bag!  Once the border punch and tissue are on I  wanted to add some flowers. All the flowers were cut out of various scraps of pink, light pink, zebra, white, black glitter, and DCWV  Black Currant stack. I used my Viva Decor Pearl pens for the pearls in the centers of the flowers. I love how it turned out! I hope you did too! 
Your next stop is Linn from Linns Scrap Shack
