A couple of weeks ago, during one of my regular Tuesday Morning cruise-throughs, I bought a large gift bag with a watercolor design of butterflies & flowers. I opened it up and used a variety of Sizzix dies to cut tags and pockets. I went crazy on the tags & didn’t have many big pieces for pockets, which I regret. More pockets next time! This is the original bag (both sides are identical.
I untied the purple ribbon handle and saved the butterfly hang tag and a decorated bag seal. I also cut a tag from the label on the bottom of the bag.
The bag sides were long & narrow with a fold down the middle. Avoiding the fold, I cut 19 tags from the two sides. Most are blue with handwriting, a few also have some of the floral design.
I cut four large and two medium tags.
I cut two slotted cards and a small pocket.
I cut ten more tags out of the leftover paper.
The last photo shows all the items I cut from the gift bag. I saved a few pieces of the bag in case I need to cut a specific size or shape when I use this beautifully coordinated watercolor butterfly/floral set!
