Photo Albums, Tags and Bags

This is what got me going on my crafting today. My friend Terry gave me this little gate because she didn't know what to do with it. I didn't either at first. Initially I started clipping photos to it. Today I noticed the tags hanging around my desk and thought, hmmmmm, maybe they will look better on this little vintage looking gate. Yes, they do look perfect there!

What do you do with a funky photo album from the dollar store? You take out your scrapbook paper and some embellishments and re-do them to look like this. Simple yet crafty! These make great gifts, especially if you have photos to put in them. I am giving these to my family filled with photos from our vacation. I hope they like them!!!
I can make these in any design. They would make nice gifts for a bridal party, filled with photos of the wedding shower or bachelorette party?? (just an idea), or great thank you gifts or for just about any other occasion. I am still coming up with more uses, Halloween themed with pictures from the Halloween party and on and on...I am loving these simple yet elegant gift bag ensembles. Gift tag, bag and tissue! You are ready to go! A nice way to package up the photo albums shown above. :) I can match to any theme and color on these as well. I will be making up a bunch of these for a possible Fall craft sale. They will sell for $3.00 a set. Pretty reasonable don't ya think?
I didn't make the matching bag for this "Bliss" tag, but I like it! I need to buy LOTS of embellishments and more ribbon. Bliss Bag Ensembles coming soon!
