{Spotlight Project} Deepti Decorates the Gift Bags

Hello, friends!Deepti here and welcome to another spotlight feature. Recently, I purchased some plain gift bags at a grocery store; they were at an awesome deal :) This deal calls for stylizing my gift bags my way :)  So, here's what I did...

I used a masking tape to make horizontal and diagonal lines on two bags. You can also use various shape dies to create you masks :)

Next I painted these line with white acrylic paint. I let it dry and added a few more stripes.

I then stamped the tribal art image stamps over these stripes in black. I also did some stamping using white acrylic paint on the diagonal design :)

This was fun easy and a quick way to decorate your plain bags :) Here is the look once again...

I have used Artsy Tribal Doodles, the August 2016 Stamp Club set 


That finishes my spotlight feature :) I hope you enjoyed it and will give this a try.  Happy paper crafting! 

Remember, if you try out any of the techniques from our Spotlight posts (or CASE a spotlight project) and add your project to our Spotlight Project Showcase you have a chance to win a $15 gift certificate (random drawing) OR your choice of 5x7 stamp set + a Spotlight Project guest designer spot (randomly drawn from the Top 3 picks).

  2. What a wonderful way to decorate the bags - thanks for the inspiration.
