Another project

Hello there

Well here is a quick project which we did on the Crafty weekend. 
First of all we took a kraft brown paper bag and inked the edges with  brown distress ink pad. Then we took 2 pieces of patterned paper about 3-4 inches deep and the width of the bag. Again these were inked and then attached to the bag, back and front.

Then with a contrasting piece of paper, we punched a decorative edge and then attached them top and bottom of our patterned paper.

Then we decorated it with Chipboard flowers, a border sticker and some other stickers from the range. We then added a blue spotted ribbon bow (Note to self, not a good idea to try this when I have had a glass of wine!). Attached a tag to the top of the bag, and a knotted piece of ribbon (Gave up on the bow this time!).
And there you have it, a lovely gift bag to give someone special a present in.

The papers used were from Basic Grey's Picaddilly Range, and Gwen at The Stamp Pad has the range of papers and some, if not all of the embellishments in.


  1. What a great bag – I love the funky retro details on this!

  2. That is really pretty, love it.
