Pretty Valentine Treat bag by Marji

I used 3 different colors of alcohol ink bottles and just dropped them randomly over the dry bag.  I then soaked the bag with alcohol and rolled it up, squeezing it all over to help distribute the color a bit.  After about an hour I rinsed it out then laid it out to dry over night.
 The next day I got out one of my My Favorite Things stamp sets and some regular dye based ink pads and stamped away.
 I used hot glue to adhere the lace flowers to the bag as well as add the pearl centers.

Are you curious what I will do with it?  It contains Emily's Valentines day treats.  It holds a lot, she will be thrilled! 
 Isn't it pretty?  I SO love how it turned out, I'm proud of myself, I have been really intimidated by these bags and have gotten rid of quite a few over the years because I never knew what to do.


  1. No one would have EVER guessed you were intimidated by these little bags, Marji…this is just wonderful!!! Great job sweet lady…love how it all turned out….including that wonderful lace flower!

  2. This is darling! I love what you did with it, and I'm sure your little girl will love her special treat bag!

  3. It looks like you have conquered your fear of these bags and then some. Awesome!
