{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!

  1. Very clever, Deepti! I love all the tribal shapes and prints and how beautifully the B&W color combo works with the Kraft bags!

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