Inspired Stamps-DT Challenge

This week at Inspired Stamps the DT was asked to create projects with flowers and scripture.  I decided to make a "tag bag".  I used two large tags and crumpled them and inked with Distress inks (wild honey, rusty hinge and broken china).  I stamped Proverbs 14:3 from His Plans for You, Inspired Stamps directly on the tag. I colored the Butterflies and Blooms, Inspired Stamps with Copic markers and fussy cut the images.  I added some clear stickles for some sparkle.

This is a side view of the "tag bag".  I added a small clear bag inside to hold the "goodies". I added a large green brad within the tag hole.

I also used some paper tape inked with same Distress inks as above and then stamped image from Be Still Silhouettes, Inspired Stamps in crushed olive, Distress ink.  The paper tape is still transparent so you can read some of the dark words on original wrapper, but I still thought these looked very sweet.  Who wouldn't want chocolates wrapped in special wrappers? 
Here is the inside view with candies within the clear bag.  This is a quick and easy little encouragement for someone you love. Go out and do a random act of kindness (RAK) today and bring a smile to someones face.  This was fun to make, let me know what you think.  The other DT has also made some wonderful projects, so please visit their blogs and leave them some kind words.
Have a great day!
