Floral Framelits Dies

Gift Bags decorated with Stampin'UP!'s Floral Framelits Dies.
Here's a quick and easy way to decorate a gift bag. These flower decorations were made with Stampin'UP!'s Floral Framelits Dies.  These started out as plain white gift bags and turned into something really festive.
Stampin'UP!'s Floral Framelits Dies

I played around with several paper combinations and decided I liked alternating Designer Papers with the solid color Cardstock.  These 2 bags were made using Stampin'UP!'s Summer Smooches Designer Paper.  (see all the Designer Papers on pages 162-165 of the 2012/2013 catalog).  I chose this paper because it was full of bright colors and seemed to match the tissue paper I had.  And the designs had circles in them so they went with the shape of the Floral Framelits Die.

Are you like me?  I have a drawer full of tissue paper that I save from all the gifts that are given in my house. So really, I had lots of choices.  I think this is left over behavior from my grandmother who lived during the Depression and saved (and re-cycled) everything!  Really I'm ready to handle any occasion! Can you imagine these bags decorated for a wedding gift or Christmas or Easter or some other occasion.  Its also a great way to use up some left over designer paper.
