Paper Bag Stuff

Hi y'all,

I thought paper bags were great for mini albums...well, guess what - they have some other uses besides stuffing your lunch in them:

I took the paper bag and folded it. I had to make hinges so that the pockets would have a little space in them because I was going to add some things to it.

I love the way the purple one came out.  The colors are so vibrant.  I added a white flower, inked it up, added some bling and a charm.  The sentiment is from K&Company: "Happy Birthday" you can imagine you can decorate it anyway you like.  Inside the front pocket is the card.

 So you see the card, a tag and a dress form die that forms some of the decoration.  But there is room to add crafty goodies to it.

The green one is really cute.  I didn't create this idea; someone else on UTube did and I neglected to jot down the person's name.  But you could do a search and her video is bound to come up to show you how to make this.

 I added a tag and card to all the bags.
I tried to coordinate the embellishments with the papers.  This paper is DCWV Linen stack (one of my favs).

These will make great cards to send to friends and add a little RAK "just because...."

Thanks for watching and Happy Crafting! :-)

Hi Terry, who would have thought these beautiful creations started life out as plain paper bags? They're absolutely stunning and so beautifully decorated. You must have the patience of a saint to work with such intricate detail and I love the bling and sparkle too! I always love seeing your projects they're so detailed and very well thought out :) Donna ♥ x
