Monogramed Gift Bags with Ann Butler Designs

The end of the school year is fast approaching (YIKES!), so get a head start on all of those teacher appreciation gifts with these quick and easy Monogram Gift Bags using Ann Butler Designs Background Basics Stamps and Crafter’s Ink both from Clearsnap!


Here’s what you need:



ColorBox® Background Basics by Ann Butler Diamonds, Checks and Picnic
ColorBox Crafter’s® Ink by Ann Butler – Night, Aquamarine, Berry and Lilac
Ann Butler Designs EZ-De’s Flourish 2″ ABC’s clear stamps
Fabric Drawstring bags, Water Mister, Acrylic Stamp Block, Buttons, Embroidery Floss and Fabric Glue.

Here’s how to make it:

Load ColorBox® Background Basics by Ann Butler  with ColorBox Crafter’s® Ink by Ann Butler, mist lightly with water, then stamp on fabric bag, let dry.  TIP:  The water makes the ink a bit more fluid, so it will seep into the texture of the fabric.  Repeat with all bags, stamping on the front and back, let dry.

Place monogram initial from Ann Butler Designs EZ-De’s Flourish 2″ ABC’s clear stamps on acrylic stamp block, load with Night (black) Ink, mist with water and stamp in center of bag, let dry.  Repeat with all bags.
Select a button and thread with complimentary colored embroidery floss.  Attach to bag with fabric glue.
Fill with some candy (or other small trinkets) and a gift card to the Teacher’s favorite store!
Quick, easy and the kids can help too!
Thanks for stopping by! -Beth
