Papertrey Ink MIM

This weeks PTI MIM is to use fabric backing and dies for a project. I decided to make my own gift bag. 
I started by ironing heat'n bond lite on the back of a bunch of fabric squares (by Basic Grey). Then I die cut balloons, happy, birthday and the star border (all from PTI).
I cut a rectangle on the fold of some muslin fabric (so I wouldn't have to see the bottom). Before sewing the bag, I ironed on all the die cuts and ran stitches over them and for balloon strings.
To sew the bags, I sewed about 3/4" seam across the top (front & back) to hold the lace ribbon for tying closed, than sewed up the sides to the bottom of the ribbon pockets. Turn right side out, shimmy some lace or ribbon through & tie shut! Easy peasy! :)

Have a great weekend!
