Gift bag

I had some brown paper bags from a well known high street store, so thought I would up cycle them.
I cut 1 down just below the logo and allowed the same width as the logo,either side of the handle strengthening panel  for the sides.
Added extra waste bag to the tops and bottom to strengthen the bag and then decorated it.
I used papermania papers and flowers, lotv image coloured with distress inks onto watercolour card.  I am new to colouring with distress inks and I quite like it.
Hand stitched around the design, was going to use the sewing machine but just could not face getting it out and setting it up. Good excuse for watching the men's beach volley ball
