Fall is the start of the holiday season during which there are lots of gatherings requiring hostess gifts. I like giving baked goods in decorative gift bags. The Hawaiian Airlines snack bag I received while on my last flight was a nice quality with great woven ribbon handles....perfect for up-cycling into an autumn gift bag. At HM Ben Franklin Crafts I purchased a really attractive hedgehog ribbon which I cut to size, removed the wire supports and glued to the bag on both sides. For the veined leaf (which is covering the HA logo), I used the dies that came with a recent Papercraft magazine. I flicked (with a stencil brush) some gold Liquitex paint onto the solid paper leaf before gluing on the veined leaf. I didn't spend a lot of time decorating this bag because my baked goods are the real gift....right? I truly believe that presentation makes the present even more delicious.
