All the nice gift boxes in our house won't fit and the only thing available in my house as of the moment are orange and red paper bags, which I would never use for a turquoise-ivory motif. I started looking around the house again and couldn't find anything but came across with a blue poster sheet. Thought I could make my own gift bag. Since I was so eager to get this project done, I just started adhering, scoring the poster sheet without actually making sure of the siz. As a result, I just screw-up my very last chance to make a gift bag. I was really frustrated because deep inside I knew that I don't have a choice but use the orange or red bags I have.
They said that "Necessity is the mother of all invention." Would you still think that this was an orange gift bag?
I covered each sides of the orange bag with ivory colored CS and added baby blue trimmings and I think I was successful in hiding its original color.
I want the bag to look clean yet elegant, so I added embellishment that fits in the occasion/event.
I also added lacy lace on the top as added top on the blue trimmings and also used it for handle. I also used a blue flower eyelet to keep the punch hole a lot stronger.
Added the same ivory colored tulle that I used for the guestbook.
Also added a string of semi-precious stones and beads and finished it with charm initials and heart.
Originally, I was planning to put a diecut wedding cake as a centerpiece for the bag but changed my mind since I need something to place the giftcard. So what I did was make a pocket made from plastic sheet and vellum quotes and adhere it in the front of the bag.
This is the gift card I made...
Would you still think that this nag used to be real orange in color?
A closer look on the beaded strings....
Hope it pass your taste!
