Super Quick and Easy Father's Day Gift Bag

This was a super fast assemblage using a folded gift bag I already had on hand and a ready made tag that just needed quick embellishment. The colors and simplicity make it nice and masculine for my husband's Father's Day gift.

I stamped my ribbon image on the tag, and inked the edges, then used the Perfect Crafting Pouch to dry the ink. I wrote my number "1" in Best Glue Ever and then sprinkled glitter at once. I poured off the excess onto a piece of paper that I had already prepped with Perfect Crafting Pouch to easily return the glitter to its bottle without static cling.
By the way, this glitter dried super fast too!

I stamped some random text as extra texture on a piece of coordinating paper. Best Glue Ever made it fast and easy to adhere a border (I could have used ribbon) around the top edge of my bag, the background layer and then the tag. Tiny Attacher staples are just for appearance, along with the masculine black paper cord on the tag. I had a page of Dad themed epoxy stickers, so I popped the letters "D-A-D" towards the bottom of the tag.

I punched holes in the short sides and braided more paper cord, incorporating a couple of matching buttons to make the little handle.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!

Love the buttons on the side. NEVER thought to use buttons like that!
