Gift bags in a hurry

edit:  A question was asked as to how I attached the bows to the bags.  First I used my pinking sheers to give a finished look to the top of the bag then I simply used a hole punch to punch 2 holes and threaded my ribbon thru and tied in a bow.  Hope this helps! 

My sister asked me if I would make up some little bags for her that she needed in a hurry.  I only had a couple of days to work on them.  So I work a full time job and only had a couple of hours in which to get these finished.   It's not my best work but for a last minute job it worked and my sister was happy. 

I couldn't make it easy on myself and make them all the same. Oh no, I had to make each bag different.  There were 18 bags and each bag had a different image.  Thank goodness they were all for women and I knew flowers would work, so I pulled out every floral stamp I had from PTI and got to stamping.  I made these awhile ago and forgot I had taken a pic of them so I thought I would share it with you.

  1. Lisa, I love these. :) Did you color each stamped image?! Oh my, I give you credit! Also, how did you close the bags? Did you use a special punch to make holes for the ribbon? You're a very nice sister! ;)
