An old bag...

Not a particularly thrilling project but a very quick way to liven up a plain brown paper bag. This one was scrounged from Alison, who bought it in Walmart in America. The nearest I’ve seen here is a pack of slightly larger brown paper lunch bags in Home Bargains (my favourite shop!).

To decorate it, I simply wheeled along some Very Vanilla, layered it on to torn cardstock and added a tag.

Stamps: Carte Postale (p57), Watercolour Vine jumbo wheel (p40)
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Ruby Red, Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Mellow Moss (ink cartridge in the wheel), Ruby Red
Accessories: Gingham ribbon – moss, Rich Regals brads, Stampin’ Around® jumbo handle

  1. Cute - I love when a store gives me a plain brown bag, it's perfect for stamping! CC

  2. You did a great job giving this bag a "face lift". Not too over-done, but it makes a big difference. Nice job.

  3. Wow, how pretty is this! Love the layering.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
