AND the team is creating ANYTHING but a card - so come on, get those creative juices flowing and show us something that's not a card!
This was the perfect time for me to try something I've been wanting to try for ages...but haven't! A 2-pocket brown paper bag; I saw the idea over on Mish Mash's blog and finally decided to give it a whirl. Love when I'm pushed to try something new!
I made a S-U-P-E-R fast gift for our youngest son's teacher - honestly, this took me 20 minutes (yes, please write that down - a complete record for me)!
I repurposed tissue paper from Victoria's Secret :D, and filled the bag with Valentine York Peppermint Patties and a little American Crafts lined die cut card which was stamped with "Happy Valentine's Day". The pink polka dot hearts are left over from the heart border from the front of the sack! I sewed the polka dot sack on 3 sides, added some fun DP, inserted the tissue paper and treats and voila - a gift sack! LOVE!!
|From this angle, you can see both pockets! :D|
|Filled with treats and card|
|Treats and card outside the bag!|
So no worries, I'll see you again "soon"!
