Gift Bags & Tags

Remember yesterday I said I had another birthday themed project but it wasn't a card?
This week the challenge for The Outlawz POM challenge group is Bag & Tag. You can create your own bag or use a ready made bag.
I have a couple of samples where I created my own bag and one that used a ready made bag. I also went with a boy theme and a girl theme.
Let's take a look...

My masculine themed bag is the handmade one. I just realized I did not write down the dimensions so if you are interested in them leave me a comment or send me an email...K?
I used a couple of different SU stamps sets on this one, Wanted and Bronco Buster. When I attached the border to the bag, I only add score tape to the two sides and the bottom so I would have a pocket for the tag. The sentiment on the tag is from Gina K Designs Out West Stamp set. The tag was made using Spellbinders Labels 11 as was the label on the front. All the papers are SU.

For this bag I used a white lunch bag. I cut off a couple of inches off the top because I did not want it to be quite that tall. The pattern paper is SU as is the cardstock. The border along the front was made using flower stamps from Gina's Fun Year Round stamp set. I used my color spritzer tool to add the spatter of different colors or ink over the flowers. I attached the border the same as I did for the masculine bag to create a pocket for the tag. The tag for this one was made with Spellbinders Labels 17 and the sentiment on the tag and on the front of the bag is from Gina's Inside & Out stamp set

I hope my samples have inspired you to play along with us this week. We have some awesome sponsors for all challenges for the month of July:
