Recently I sent some gifts out to five special ladies and I thought I’d share them with you. I began with our storage cases and slipped some of our gorgeous Designer Series Paper (DSP) inside. I used Timeless Elegance DSP from the big catalog and Birthday Bouquet from the Occasions catalog. I wrapped each one up with coordinating ribbon.
One goodie inside was a package of candy dots. I placed them inside a Sketched Dots Tag a Bag Gift Bag. I closed the bag shut with a Tea Lace Doily and a bow paper clip (from the Occasions catalog). The sentiment comes from the stamp set Birthday Blooms which can also be found in the Occasions catalog. You’ll find a list of my supplies at the end of the post.
Over the next few days I’ll share the rest of what I put inside!

I sat down at my craft table to create a project with our Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bags and I saw a flower sitting on my desk that I made months ago. I tried using it to create a card many times but it just never worked for me but I think it looks pretty cute, front and center on my bag. The bag is big enough that lots of different treats would fit inside. This is a very quick project to make and who wouldn’t enjoy a little surprise like this to start off their day?
As I mentioned, I used the Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bags (#135503). These are currently on the Retired List as I write this and they are discounted. The bags are 5″ x 8-1/4″ and come 10 to a package. Normally they are $3.95 but they are 50% off and just $1.98! The Chevron Tag a Bag Gift Bags (#131370) are also on the retiring list and they are discounted 40%. I will post both in my product list but please note that the sales price is not reflected on this list.
Are you wondering how I made the flower? I used the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle punch and did some folding! I will either make a picture tutorial or a video in the next few days and show you how I did it!
I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the flower to the doily and tucked the sentiment behind. I went back and forth about whether to attach the doily to the bag but in the end I decided not to and used a clothespin to keep the bag closed.
All accessories on the retired list (which includes the bags in this project) are while supplies last. All stamp sets will be available until May 26th! Here’s the updated lists!
