We begin with Maria's amazing Place in Time gift bag! She created this cheerful craft using the Graphic 45 Regular Tag Album Staples. This is definitely an example of thinking outside the box! This fabulous project is so much fun to make and it's the perfect way to add heartfelt beauty to any gift. Download Maria's fabulous tutorial and create this sweet treasure for someone you love! Here is what Maria had to say about this darling craft!
"I love Graphic 45’s tag albums! They are so versatile you can even use them for 3D crafts! Take this gift bag for example. I made it with two tags from the regular tag album. Since you get 6 tags per album, you can easily make 3 gift bags following my simple instructions below! Just change the paper for your liking. For this particular gift bag, I used the August designs from Place In Time along with some bits and pieces from French Country. The rich colors from Place In Time along with the Sunflower paper from French Country give a warm, Indian Summer type of vibe – just perfect for a special August baby I know!" -Maria

It is loaded with great tips and inspiration! Here is what Annette had to say about this delightful creation.
"I’ve always been a huge fan of Halloween so I was head over heels when I saw the new Steampunk Spells collection! Every since I was little, Halloween has provided me a delightful opportunity to create, dress up, act like someone or something completely different, and delve into the mysterious, creepy side of my imagination. Creating this fun interactive mini album brought back all the things I love about Halloween, especially while I played “The Nightmare Before Christmas” in the background while I designed this." -Annette
