Canvas Tag Bag


They aren't pink. No friends named Dumbo. (Which is totally alright with me, I never really cared for that part of Dumbo anyway...) However, the elephants are on parade today for my entry in the Fabulous Frames Denami Blog Hop.


If you've arrived from the talented blog of Wendy, then you are right on track!

I pulled out Denami's sweet elephant stamp and paper pieced him in some coordinating colors to match the transparency frame that I spray painted a light bay blue. After adding a touch of May Arts ribbon and trim, I adhered them all to a canvas tag and then added a cool sand colored boutique button.


I think I've found out my favorite way to decorate a gift bag without worring about a mis-stamp or mess-up!

The next stop on the Hop is Amy. She is sure to wow you with her creation! Thank you for visiting! Here's a few more details about today's hop!
