You Are My Happy Gift Bag by designer Patty Folchert

Today I wanted to share a dressed up gift bag using the brand new Jillibean Soup/Healthy Hello collection. I made this one for my daughter’s birthday and thought it was worth sharing.

You Are My Happy bag by Patty Folchert

I grabbed the lovely large floral paper to start with and made it into the banner shape. Then I stamped in brown ink directly onto that paper the “You are My Happy” sentiment at bottom of banner as shown. Next I stamped the flower base layer onto watercolor paper in pink and brown outline as shown. Then I stamped the brown flower centers and leaves and fussy cut out all of the flower pieces.

I proceeded to build the layers of flowers adding the flower centers with 3D pop up dots as shown adhering to the banner base. Next I added some new dark blue adhesive sequins to the centers of the flowers for some bling.

To add it to the gift bag I used a large hole punch and punched in the top center of the banner base. Then cut a notch to the hole and slid onto bag handle. To dress it up a bit more I grabbed one of the brand new butterfly clothespins in yellow and clipped it on as shown.

The result is a cheerful bag sure to make anyone happy, my daughter included.

Creating Makes Me Happy,
