Gorgeous Shabby Chic Upcycle

Hello ScraPerfect fans, Kim L. here today to share with you my latest project. I upcycled a canvas bag into a shabby chic gift bag suitable for any woman in your life.  I hope you like it!  I couldn't have made this without some amazing products from ScraPerfect.  Here it is:


I started out with a plain canvas bag and adhered some white lace to serve as a background with the
Best Glue Ever and I only had to use a very thin line. Then, I secured the cream doily to the center and lace trim to the sides, also with the Best Glue Ever. I cut the canvas image of the lady into a circle shape and attached it to the center of the cream doily with the Best Glue Ever again.
I layered a cream dangle lace and a lavender lace on the bottom of the gift bag and then added a piece of purple bling in the center with a glue dot made from the Best Glue Ever.  Here is a close up of the laces on the bottom of the bag:


Next, I started embellishing and added a delicate lavender trim around the edge of the image.  I adhered some lavender sprigs to the bottom of the image, and a couple of doily centers as well. Everything was glued to the bag with ScraPerfect's amazing Best Glue Ever.  I utilized my
Embellie Gellie to perfectly place tiny lavender flatback pearl accents and a few white pearl embellishments.


As a finishing touch, I gave the entire front of the bag a few spritzes of  purple shimmer spray from my stash.  Deciding to keep the back of the bag simple, I chose to only add a matching cream doily, which was adhered with the Best Glue Ever.


I enjoyed making this gift bag so much that I was inspired to try a larger one.  So here is a bonus project, all made with ScraPefect products too.  This one was done in a different color palette, hope you like this shabby gift bag too:



I thank you for stopping by today, please follow this blog, leave me a comment on this post, and be sure to check out ScraPerfect for the entire line of products.  I hope you will try altering a bag and share photos too, they are fun and addicting!

Until Next Time,

Kim Lippincott
