What was your inspiration?
In the Southern United States, we are raised with a wonderful tradition called the "surcee." A surcee is a gift given from one person to another for no other reason that to show the recipient that he or she is special. These little gift bags are a little surcee by themselves, but they make the most delightful vehicles to deliver gifts to your friends and loved ones, too.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It comes with a warning: Highly addictive! You will love making these little bags. You can embellish them with many of the same items you use in scrapbooking. You will find a world of uses for them.
