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,
Patty Folchert

  1. Professional observing gift bags & cases is a great skill to consume. These bags can be shaped out of any decorative packaging paper you have about, or you can dye Kraft paper as I've done now. Check out the orders below to study how to brand your own.
