Flowers in a Blackboard Jar on a Kraft Paper Gift Bag

I love, love the K and Co. blackboard products, especially the jar shaped tags.  Using the Marvy chalk pens it was easy to write 'thanks' on the tag.  You could use chalk that is also available at Ben Franklin Crafts if you want to make the tag erasable.  The flowers I tied together and glued to the tag had white stems so I wrapped them with green florist tape.
The little tag that I stamped the message on (with Paper Smooches sentiments) was from Japan, but you could easily cut out printed card stock scraps to make your own tag. The bag was from a set sold at HM Ben Franklin Crafts and the ribbon is a Heiko soft and silky one from the Celebrations store. If you want to make the jar tag more realistic you could glue on a piece of acetate, then trim it to the correct size and shape.
I enjoy whipping up simple gift bags because they make a great impression on the recipient.  In this case, my gardener neighbor is getting a thank you for helping me...again! Thanks for stopping by....hope you enjoyed your visit.
