I have been holding on to this hand painted gift bag for over a year since my in-laws returned from a trip to Peru and Columbia. I adore the brown paper gift bag painted in bright colors. I often keep gift bags to re-use, but I could not stand to give this one away.
A few months ago I found a unique oval frame at the thrift store for a dollar. With a little makeover I knew it would be perfect for framing the gift bag art. I removed the backing and glass. I spray painted the frame including the hanging hardware white.
I used the glass as a guide when cutting the picture off the front of the gift bag. I lined up the glass on the gift bag with the image centered. I traced around the glass. I cut just inside of the traced line.
After a few light coats of spray paint and some drying time, I reassembled the frame with the painted gift bag art. With the white frame and vibrant colors, I decided to hang the art in this little area above my laundry room counter.
This gift bag art has three of my favorite things; 1) bright colors, 2) brown kraft paper, and 3) a low price tag!
