Blogger's Challenge #64

This week's challenge was to use Designer Series Paper. Well, I guess that is enough push for me to finally make one of these adorable bags out of paper. These have been roaming around on different sites for quite a while now, but they just seems a bit too tedious to me. But was I ever wrong! These were one of the easiest boxes/bags I have ever made! And as much as I really despise to make anything more than once I may actually have to play with this one a little bit more they are too cute. I want to try to come with different size ones.



There have been so many samples and tutorials for this I do not even know who to link you to. If you have questions about how to make it let me know and I will help you out with more information! Got to get my butt moving only two more days till CROP walk and I have LOTS to do still! Imagine that.

Stamps: Pick a Petal and Think Happy Thoughts
Paper: Bella Rose DP and Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip card stock
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Other: Tab punch, circle punches, scallop border punch, chocolate chip brad, jumbo eyelets and ribbon

Hope you have a great day!

Fabulous use of DS paper, Mary Jo. Your projects always amaze me, and this one is no exception! These make such wonderful gift bags and really showcase the papers so very well. Have a great weekend.
