Volunteer Gift

Hi everyone! Yesterday I was working on something to give to my classroom volunteers sinced this week was volunteer appreciation week. I came up with an apple gift bag. The bag was cut at 5 1/2 inches using the inchbag from Tags, Bags, Boxes and more. The apple was cut at 3 1/2 inches from the new preserves cartridge. The bag is big enough to fit a gift card and some candy. I am going to try to do a video of this project sometime this weekend. I have been building a craft organizer for my craft room so I have been mostly in the garage. I will post pictures of it when I am done.

Here is a pic of the gift bag:

This next pictures shows how I attached the ribbon. The ribbon is BEAUTIFUL and I LOVE it. It is Stampin' Up!'s ribbon in Real Red. It is the 1" double stitched grosgrain ribbon (#115607). The bag was too slim for me to tie this thicker ribbon into a knot for the handle. So I punched a hole in each side of the bag and thread the ribbon through then sewed it with my sewing machine. This made the handle sleek and not bulky.
