present Gift bags as decorations

Last Christmas I bought a gift bag that was so pretty I thought it would make a nice picture to hang on the wall.
The front had sparkles but not the back, so I cut the back and used some of it to cover up the holes for the handle. It gave it kinda 3 D affect.
Then I used stick tack to hold it to a picture frame that had another picture in it and hung it up. It turned out so pretty and I also used some of the back for a Christmas scene behind a shelf, it fit perfect.

There are so many pretty Christmas bags that I already bought more that I plan to use for decorating this year.

What a great idea! I love gift bags. They have so many beautiful and cute ones and you can recycle. We have some that have been going back in forth in our family for years.
