Happy Birthday Gift Bag

This gift bag started out as a plain white bag which needed some sprucing up.  I attached some patterned paper to the bag and cut a couple of cupcakes from the KaDoodle Bug Designs "Sweet Treats" cutting file.  I used the same paper to create a small tag.  I went for a monochromatic theme using different shakes of pink for my cupcakes. They were embossed with the Retro Kitchen and D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folders.
Each of the cupcakes were pop dotted on foam for added dimension.  I used my white gel pen to add a bit of doodling to the cupcakes.  The tag was tied onto the bag with a bit of Watermelon Taffy Trendy Twine.
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
