Gift Bag Tag

Today I thought I would try my hand at making a gift bag tag. I used a manila tag as a guideline and cut out one from white cardstock. I then stamped it with an image from Damask Designs from PTI. I love this set from Dawn McVey - so elegant looking.
I needed a gift card holder also and decided to incorporate it into my tag. I scored the bottom 1/3 of the tag, then glued the top section onto Sweet Blush cardstock. You can see the bottom piece hanging off in the photo above.
I bent the bottom section around to the back and glued down each side, forming a small pocket that's perfect to slip a gift card in.
For the front, I added Sweet Blush and Black ribbon and stamped the initial and circle image using my Just Rite Stampers.
I used a piece of the leftover Sweet Blush to create a quick card to include in the bag. The sentiment is from In Bloom.
Here's the finished bag, ready to be delivered. The gifts inside are all wrapped in damask tissue paper I purchased.
This bag will be going to a good friend at work who's birthday is today.
