This is the first altered bag I've created and it certainly won't be my last. What a wonderful way to customize a gift and you could even make a matching card.
For this bag I created a transparent window as the focal point. I took a Heidi Swapp mask and attached it to a transparency then painted with green paint.
I cut the center out of the brown bag and attached the transparency over the hole.
I then covered the rest of the bag with some bold patterned paper from Tinkering Ink and finished it off with a big bright flower.
