Congratulations, Love Birds

began today's blog post with a project
by the new 2013 Creative Team...I just happen to be first!

 Love Birds Congratulations Gift Bag
made with tons of goodness from the Curtsey Boutique Shop at Etsy!
I found this sweet, free printable at and
printed it onto white cardstock.  Here are the step-by-steps and a listing 
of the supplies that I used from the Curtsey Boutique Shop

1.  After printing the 'love birds' image, use a 2.5"circle punch 
to cut out the design; adhere to the center of the doily.  
2.  Stamp sentiment onto a piece of cardstock,
 trim and add to bottom portion of image.  
3.Machine-stitch around the perimeter if desired.  
4.  Using a Ballpoint-Tip Glue Pen, attach a border of brown/white 
baker's twine around the edge of the image.  
5. Line the top of the doily to just under the hole of the shipping tag 
and attach with adhesive or glue dots.

6. Next, attach the paper bow to the top of the doily
 using adhesive, foam dot or glue dot.
7. Cluster two white felt roses to the side of the image (or center, if desired)
 and add a button or pearl to the center or leave plain.  
 8.  Hand-cut or use a leaf punch to fashion a couple of leaves. 
 9. Before tying the tag onto the paper bag, fold over the opening of the bag to create a flap.  
 10.  Using the hole of the shipping tag as a guide, punch a hole into the top of the bag. 
11.  Tie tag on with a length of brown/white baker's twine.
