Hi all and welcome to Day 8 of the Crafting Ireland 12 Days of Christmas. Today I am stopping by with a lovely simple project on re-purposing a paper bag. You could of course buy new ones. But I tend to keep ones that are nice and strong and sturdy so usually have a few lying around.
What you will need:
- Paper bag
- Papers and embellishments
- Stamps and inks if using
The paper bag I had was one from Fossil. It had a lovely woodgrain print all over it. But it also had a giant fossil logo in the middle of it. So I had to do something about that!
Die cut a shape big enough to cover the logo on the bag. Lay some ribbon down on it as below. Then layer up further die cut shapes on it.
Stamp a sentiment or image. I used a lovely sentiment from Fresh Squeezed Stamps, a verse sentiment that looks lovely on the bag. I adhered this on foam pads. I always use lots of foam pads too make sure nothing sags in any part of it.
I added some snowflake die cuts to the bag and covered them with stickles for sparkle.
Enjoy the new lease of life you have given your gift bag!
I hope you enjoyed this little project. Make sure to stop by again tomorrow for day 9 of our 12 Days of Christmas special!!
