Upcycled Burlap Gift Bag

Today I am sharing an Upcycled Burlap Gift Bag I made with some products I received from sponsors of the Prime Publishing VIB Event at CHAShow 2016.

I love how easily the Plaid chalk paint went on the surface. I also used some of the Mixed media Color Spray

REALLY taking recycling to the next level! I took the remnant Oly*fun® and used it as a stencil! It worked perfectly 🙂

I started by painting some of the surface with the chalk paint, let it dry, and then added some splashes of yellow spray paint. I hurried up the drying with a hair blower.

Next I used Sizzix Flowers#7 die and cut out some lovely flowers from pieces of Oly*fun®.

I used the remnant of the Oly*fun® as a stencil and first daubed green acrylic paint, let it dry, and then sprayed the white colour spray to create an added pretty sheen .

I lightly daubed some DecoFoil adhesive on a few spots and added a lovely highlight of purple flecks.

Add brads, attach flowers with adhesive, and your gift bag is complete!
