making wall art out of a gift bag

Pin It
i've been eyeing this giftbag and the coordinating products at target for a while.  i LoVe the design, but didn't know what i'd do with it.  was there with Bear and saw it on a clearance endcap for $2.18 (or somewhere close to that).  of course, i snapped it up jUSt beCAuSe.  as we were finishing up our shopping i figured it out.

once we got home, i pulled out an old frame i had.  next i attempted to disguise the fact that it was indeed a giFt bAg.  i pulled the ribbon handle out of the back side that was folded.  then i glued it on the other side (see it at the bottom?).  this kept me from having to do anything about removing the top ribbon handle and subsequent holes it would leave behind.

overall, i'm diggin' it. 
it cost a little over $2. 
and it mAkES mE sMiLe whenever i look at it.

That's a pretty cool idea. I don't think I would have guessed it was a gift bag without you saying it.

Wow that is an awesome idea. I love it. Great reminder that life is a gift everyday even the yucky dark ones for they make all the other days so much better.

That's awesome! I love the colors of it. I wouldn't have guessed it was a gift bag either.

What a creative idea! I was just looking at my own gift bags recently and enjoying the art on them. This is a nice way to enjoy your gift bag artwork!

Whew, I thought I was the only one who had a 'thing' for gift bags...I buy them cause they are pretty and know somewhere down the line they would fit into a craft project! Thanks for sharing.
