Recycled Burlap Gift Bag.

I love to recycle and alter items for personalized gifts!
 The Burlap Bag was from World Market for $1.99. 
I wanted to leave the World Market and not cover it up, so who receives this gift will be excited to know its from one of their favorite stores!
I used a stencil for the design first using gesso, and then added the CI paints. 
For the branch I used Creative Inspirations Chocolate paint, and for the leaves I used Sage and Evergreen.
On the tulle ribbon trim I used Antique Copper CI paint.
Its amazing how these paints add so much sparkle to the tulle and burlap!
For the leaves I used chalkboard paper, and a file cut maple leaf.
I added Siam jeweled rhinestones from CI to add some bling to the leaves.
Below you can see a close of of the amazing sparkle and shimmer of the CI paints!

Love how versatile these paints are! They work awesome on burlap & trim!

Here are the close up of the colors and the Jeweled rhinestones below.

Here is a fun Thanksgiving card I created using a digi stamp from Digital Delights. I used Mango Creative Inspirations paint on the pumpkin, Emerald for the leaf and Chocloate for the stem. Below you can see a close up of the amazing shimmer!

Look at all the shimmer!!
Here are the close up colors of the amazing CI paints!
