Underwear Mishap Inspiration

It really is strange sometimes where my inspiration comes from.  My project today is a typical example of this.  A couple of weeks ago I bought some gift bags at the store that I wanted to duplicate.  I forgot all about them until a friend related a story of her 'underwear mishap' involving a new bra 'fastener' (that didn't), and the delivery man (who arrived when he shouldn't) - not going into details, let's just say blushes all round.

I just took a plain Kraft gift bag, and cut off the handles, then embellished it with some double-sided paper (K & Co I believe), some ribbons (to replace the string handles), lace and buttons.  The corset beneath is a file from Silhouette.

Thought that this was a cute way to add a feminine touch to an otherwise pretty boring gift bag.

Thanks for taking a peek.



  1. WOW! This is so cool! Beautiful gift bag. Love the way you added the lace and buttons. And oops for your friends mishap but if it inspired this lol!!! ok I better stop talking! before I get smacked!

  2. Wow, Michelle this is gorgeous! And so very clever. This gift bag would be great way to give a gift of "unmentionables". LOL!
