I've made the happy discovery that plain white gift bags can be bought very cheaply! If I remember correctly, I found mine at AmazonSmile.com. But I've also seen them at art/craft stores like Michaels.
Below are three of the prints I've made on pages of old encyclopedias. I chose pages with botanical illustrations so that there would be some rhyme-and-reason to the finished look. To make these three prints, I used my 6" x 6" Ginkgo stencil.
After the prints dried, I cut them out, then used a gluestick to add them to both sides of the gift bags. I added other prints as well, as shown below ...
|Above: Another 6" x 6" stencil, Swatton Flowers Version 1, was used to make this print.|
|Above: Silhouette of a Wildflower Bouquet Stencil (also 6" x 6") was used to make this print.|
|Above: This print was made with 9' x 12" Thistles Stencil, placed over a print originally made with 9" x 12" Fantasia Stencil and 6" x 6" Tiger Lily stencil. These details can be better seen if you click on this image to enlarge it.|
My full line of stencils, including ones used today, are on StencilGirl.com pages that start here.
