Altered Gift Bags by DT Member Maggie

Hello friends, Maggie here today to share with you a quick and easy project for altering some gift bags. I made this project with lots of great items from Shabby is Chic Boutique store on Facebook.
I created these gift bags by adhering everything down using strong double sided .25in. strong sticky tape. The Eiffel Tower bag has the rhinestone trim from SCB, on the tower in several places.  I added the flower with pearl & bling pieces to the top of the bridal applique. I have kept the same colour tones in all three of the bags.

On the Lady with Mirror bag, I pieced the pink shell trim in between the double flower applique. I added a metal butterfly for interest, and some of the SCB bling to the flower centers.
The ballerina bag has the pink bridal applique embellished with the flowers, button and bling.  The flower bow applique was added to the top to finish the bag.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. You can find more information on this project and all of my Shabby is Chic Boutique projects over on my YouTube Channel.
Have a great day!
