Tag the Bag!

The last few days it’s been all about Suzanne.  (It’s not everyday you turn 50!)  I shared her birthday card and a bottle tag to get her party started.  Today I am going to share the tag I made for her gift bag. It’s a quick and easy tag and it ties it all together.

Stampin Up Number of Years Gift Tag Idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I found this bag at the party store and I thought it was perfect for Suzanne’s gift.  I could have left it like it was but the teacher in me wondered, “Was it meeting it’s full potential?” I thought not. I chose this framelit from the Labels Collection (retired) because I really liked the way it tied in with the scroll design on the bag as well as the number 50. I wanted to keep the same elements I used on her card and wine tag so I embossed it with the Floral Affection Embossing Folder, cut the Large Numbers Framelits, added gold ribbon, and heat embossed the sentiment.  I used the Number of Years stamp set.

 

I cut ~15″ of gold ribbon and tied a knot on each end.  I like the way this makes the ribbon curl.  I wrapped the ribbon around the handle on the bag and stapled it together.  Then I added glue dots to the staple and the knots on the ribbon and attached the tag. Quick and easy!

What I love is how everything ties together and makes for a great presentation.  Plus, it’s handmade from the heart. Here’s a look at the whole birthday set starting with the gold inspiration piece.
