"In honor of school going back into session everywhere, we thought it would be fun to issue a Brown Bag Challenge. We want to see what you can do to dress up, alter, change an ordinary brown lunch bag into a paper crafting work of art. You could modify it to become a gift bag with handles, create a card base by folding it in half (complete with a slide out tag), add a window to it or whatever else you can dream up. After the hop is though, we should all have plenty of inspiration to help us create amazing projects with inexpensive brown bags! We look forward to seeing your creations!"
When I read the Blog Hop info for this month, I knew exactly what I wanted to do! There are lots of pictures here, so bare with me! :)
Basically, what I have to share with you today is a little "Brown Bag" album! I took 2 brown lunch bags...
Stacked them together, folded them in half and punched 4 holes on the folded side!
With those 4 holes you can start decorating any way you like! For this album, I took small pieces of Pure Poppy Saddle Stitch, put them through the holes and then tied those off with green Divine Twine!
Then you just decorate each page as you like! The new PTI School Time set is perfect for this little Preschool album!
This library card pulls out with a little note on it!
I love this ruler from the "It's Official" set! After stamping it, I ran it through my Big Shot with the wood grain impression plate! Such a fun embellishment!
Then in each open side of the lunch bags, I slid in 2 journaling cards complete with decorative pulls!
So great for leaving a personal note or telling a story!
You can see here where I slide in the journaling card!
Then on the back, I left just a quick personal note to my daughter!
So that is my brown bag project! Hope you like it! Can't wait to hear what you think! Your comments are SO appreciated!
Have a great hop!
