Vintage Love Gift Bag with Tim Holtz and Making Memories

Do you feel love is in the air!!!! I do!!!! and fortunate to have married the love of my life and we have been together for a long, long time now. Anyway I wanted to share a vintage bag I made to give to a special Valentine in my life.  I started with a burgundy bag from my Christmas stash and decided it would be perfect. If you don't have a burgundy that use a Kraft bag.
I made the flowers using Valentine Cupcake liners. I cut 3 different size circles, sprayed them with Cranberry Glimmer Mist. Allow them to dry and then just wad them up, open and layer them and add a clear jewel gemstone to the center.
I took one of the Tim Holtz Adornments and using Glossy Accent I placed it right on top of the crown that I used from the Tim Holtz Urban Grudge Stamp set. I used this stamp set on all the stamped pieces you see on my bag. My tag was distressed with the Tim Holtz distressing tool and Pumice Distress Ink. My glass embellishments I made by going to the jewelry department at Hobby Lobby and buying the pieces, went at home and put them together. I saved a lot of money doing these this way. I hope you go through your bag stash and make your special someone a beautiful bag to place a gift in. Hugs Pammejo
