Up-cyling-Gift Bag Idea

A quick snap of a brown paper bag that I Up-cycled.

 I made a little heart stamp out of a rubber and used some letter stamps to add a personal touch. Then tied a bit of ribbon around the handle, but you could use anything to decorate a brown paper bag and use it as a gift bag for someones pressies :)

Beautiful Packaging from M&S

I just love these ditsy geometric patterns!
