Gift Bag Art

I did a feature on my sister in law Teresa with Nestled in Rosenberg not too long ago. It was about her Art from a $store gift bag. She made these 

How awesome are they!?! I LOVED her idea! I decided to start hunting for my own $store gift bags and frames to decorate our pretty plain apartment. I found these CUTE girls gift bags at Dollar Tree. My hubby found the colorful frame packs at Target for $2.50 ea. 
See the raised pieces? I removed those and put them into the frames. These are the finished pictures. I used scrap book paper behind the images.
The green dragonfly on the floral paper is my favorite!! Alie came to check them out when I was finished. 
See, she liked that one best too! This is how I hung them up in her room. 
This is a view of the whole wall. 

Thanks for stopping by today. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Don’t forget about Terrifically Tasteful Thursdays!! I have also posted pictures of our recent vacation in San Diego for y’all to enjoy. It was a first for our family and the first time our sweet Alie had been to the beach. You can view the pictures HERE!


I am linking up to these awesome parties!

  1. Wow, this was collecting dust, its so cute girl. How creative, I love them. Some of those bags are so cute right, perfect for framing, but duh, who would have thought. Also you would not believe but I have that same boy and girl praying, on your wall. I've had that for all my life, my dad's friend made it for me back in Romania when I was just a baby, and it's been in all my kids rooms, growing up. I was thinking about refinishing it though, to make it match my kids more, dark hair, ya know, none of them have blond, lol, but I did as a baby. he he. THANK you for your comments, on my 100 day challenge, so glad to see that others are like me, all crazy, and loud and stuff. Makes me feel a little better. lol. Going to try your turkey burger soon, sounds perfect. I love turkey burgers too, and I'm so craving something fattening, lol, so this will do the trick, but not be so bad, yayyy. Hugs, Bella :0

  2. What a wonderfully creative idea. They came out so adorable. I am sure your daughter must love them they are really so very cute.I use decorative gift bags to hang on hooks and to put in empty spots like corners, I will add some flowers or greenery to the bag and it looks great.Also, you can put a small lamp inside to make a unique looking lamp, or you can also use them aspretty trash cans in a bedroom.Thanks for showing us your sweet creationsBlessings, Nelie

  3. What a fantastic idea!! I was just shopping at the dollar store yesterday and am always drawn to the amazingly cheap gift bags…but how many gifts can one person really give??? I love your idea, or your sis-in-laws idea!Thank you so much for sharing.I hope you and your family have a wonderful fall weekend~Fondly,Ann@The Tattered Tassel

  4. Girl you better stop linking up such cute things, just picked this out to share with everyone, you know the drill. But that's it, I think I have to keep you on restriction on something, lol. Keep it up Ami, for real, though, you are so creative, and if you have any more stuff collecting dust, make sure to bring it on out, I would love to see it. Thanks girl, Bella 🙂

  5. What a great idea to use giftbags! And they turned out really good! I have to say that I love the first piece with the bird's nest as well! Thanks for linking up for Friday Favorites last week!
