Emergency gift bag

I needed a big gift bag recently for my Father in law's birthday gift and low and behold, we had none at the house. It was time for some emergency crafting. I got to repurpose in the process as well ;)

I had a lovely brown paper bag, but the problem was the big logo on the sides. I recently discovered the magic of gesso, so after painting both sides with it, I basically had a clean canvas to work with.

I grabbed some stencils and spray inks and just had fun. I love how quickly the spray inks dry, so this took no time at all. I tried to stick to a more male feel for the bag so that it could be used again.

So there you go. No need to throw out the branded gift packets.

Cheers lovelies

Ooooh...gesso is such a great invention! Love how you upcycled the bag. :)
