{tube holder} gift bag

I'm back again with another find from the Target $1 spot!  I loved this felt gift bag with the XO on it and the pink handle was crying out to be prettied up. 

Bag: Target, Tube & Sentiment: SRM Stickers, Ribbon: Reasonable Ribbon

I sewed a piece of gingham ribbon along the handle leaving 2 loops at the ends to hold an SRM tube filled with candy.  I placed the "from the heart" sentiment on a transparency and sewed it on across the XOXO.  Here is a close-up of the tube holder.

A quick and easy way to spice up a gift bag.

My friend Amy, a very talented crafter and maker of all things original, is having a 100th Posy Giveaway!  Leave a comment on her blog for a chance to win an Amy Original.  While you are there, check out all her other wonderful projects, it will be time well spent, I promise!

Happy Sunday, friends!  Hope happy hits you head on today!

If you want to be happy, be.
