Card embellished with a large cluster of the cut out gift bag flowers. The flowers in various colors adorn the lower right corner of the card. The cord handle is used to complete a partial rectangular shape on the left side and upper left corner. When I receive gifts in gift bags, I always keep the gift bags with the idea of recycling them, either as a bag for another gift, or as inspiration for a craft project. I recently received a gift bag with a beautiful floral pattern, and decided to recycle this bag by using the cut-out flowers to make a birthday card.

Approximate Time: 30 minutes



  1. Fold light blue marbled cardboard in half to create a card 4.1" x 6". Use the ruler to make the fold neat and smooth.

  2. Glue the 3.6" x 5.6" metallic paper to the front of the card, carefully ensuring that it is an equal distance from the edges.

  3. Carefully cut out the flowers from the used gift bag. I only used the flowers from the one side of the gift bag, saving the other flowers for another project.

  4. Arrange the leaves and flowers in place, and glue them to the front of the card.

  5. Create a 3D effect: for some flowers, glue the whole flower flat to the cardboard, and for others, use the self-adhesive foam squares to lift certain parts of the flowers from the background.

  6. Use the string that was attached to the original gift bag to "frame" the design.

  7. Print a message on the white paper, cut it to the correct size and paste it to the inside of the card.
