For some time I’ve been wanting to alter some paper bags and today I made a shaker gift bag!!!  It was super easy to put it together.  I die-cut the largest ballon die from the NEW “Stitched Large Balloon Dies” on a piece of pattern paper and die-cut several stars in yellow CS.  For the shaker part I used a clear envelope and a piece of blue CS.  I heat embossed one of the sentiments from “Make A Wish” and outlined it to create a shadow and randomly stamped stars using a white ink pad.  I added glass beads, sequins and stars.  To finish decorating the balloon I added blue twine and tied a bow.  I LOVE the way it turned out!!!
