I needed a gift bag recently and wanted a quick way to decorate it, and so I pulled out Stampin' Up!'s Calypso Coral Celebration Add-On Kit.  If you're looking for a lot of bang for your buck, treat yourself to this kit!  What's not to love about that stitched garland?  There's plenty of it in the kit, and it can be cut to whatever size you need for cards, scrapbook pages, boxes, gift bags, etc.  It is made up of Calypso Coral, Basic Gray, Crisp Cantaloupe, Crumb Cake, and Gold Foil circles.  I used two of the Banners Framelits to cut the two banners (in the top left corner) from some of the designer paper included in the kit.  Although the kit includes the streamers ( with adhesive already in place ) and a Stampin' Spritzer to use for coloring them, I chose to leave them white for my bag.  I used some of the Gold Foil included in the kit, along with the Butterflies Framelits, to cut that gorgeous butterfly, which made a perfect embellishment for the bag.  The Celebration Add-On Kit (either Calypso Coral or Bermuda Bay) has many perfect purposes, and it definitely makes it easy (and quick) to give a plain gift bag a festive flair!
