Gift Bag - Western Happy Trails

I'm sober today! HA HA HA This is a larger giftbag than the one that was posted yesterday, you might be able to tell from the pictures, and required a little more paper but as luck would have it I have plenty of paper...I know hard to believe but it's true!

Again the papers are from the Recollections pack and the western is also from what I ordered a few years ago from Dollar Scrapbooking. I really like this larger one, the smaller one was okay but I think I like the papers on this one better.

I cut the "happy trails" and the little horseshoe with my Pazzles. They might be hard to see but I added two little copper brads on the Happy Trails image and it seemed to make it look a little nicer.

Instead of adding some ribbon for embellishment I used some jute since it looked more like rope and would make this a nice giftbag to use for a male or female. I untwisted the little bit on the tag to make it a little fuller.


  1. Very nice Okie!!!
    Do you put paper around the whole bag?
    I decorated bags before but only did the front and back. Yours looks like it might go all the way around. I rally like the Happy Trails and the bras does give it that extra touch.

    1. It depends on the bag, if it has printing on both sides then I cover the front and back, I rarely cover the sides of a bag. I guess actually most of the time I do cover the front and back but don't decorate the back.

  2. Loved the western theme, good idea with the jute...keep up the great work..
