Happy Birthday Watercolor Treat Bag

I just love the gold in the new treat bags! The bag is pretty, just on its own.

I wanted to try watercoloring the white stripes. I used re-inkers and an aqua painter, and colored in three of the new In Colors.

To do this, mix a drop or two of your re-inker color of choice in a water safe container, I use an empty embellishment container. Squirt in a few drops of water from your aqua painter. Grab some of the color with the brush tip of your painter and brush on the bag. Tip: Be very careful when wiped excess off the gold stripes. You may end up wiping up some of the gold. Blot, don't rub.

Set aside to dry for about a half hour.

Decorate as desired.

Add treats or a gift and give to someone special.
