It seems creative team member Becky Garrison has some babies on their way in her family, so when she thought of white on kraft, she thought eyelet lace and white flowers! This cute baby gift bag was made using the Small Kraft Paper Sack, a little over a yard of white eyelet lace (1 1/4" wide), a few Petaloo paper flowers with rhinestone centers, and about 18" of pink polka dot grosgrain ribbon. Leave the bag flat (unopened) and start at the bottom. Place one 3 1/2" long strip of lace at the bottom of the bag and draw a straight line just where the top of the lace should go. Then, using a ruler and pencil, move up the bag, making a line every 3/8" until you get about 2" from the top. Fold over about 1 1/2" of the top of the bag (folding toward the side with the lines), and draw a line about 1/4" from the very top (serrated edge) of the bag. Using red line tape (Inkssentials, Scor-Tape, Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive, etc.) place a line across the bag just below each of the pencil lines. Then, one at a time, remove the covering from the tape and add a 3 1/2" strip of the lace. Once you have done all the lace on the bag, then folded over the top of the bag and added the last piece on the folded over piece, punch two 1/4" holes about 2 1/2" apart on the folded top, and add a pretty ribbon, tie a bow so that the ties cascade down the front of the lace. Next add a few pretty flowers or other bling, and you are done! You can find more in depth instructions and photos on Becky's blog at Becky Garrison Paper Crafts.
