"Belli Challenge #22 ~ Paper Bags"

This weeks Belli Challenge is paper bags. Paper bag albums, gift bags, bagalopes, anything bags. I choose to make a paper bag gift bag. I hadn't made one before but I like how it turned out. Here is where you can find the info on this weeks challenge. I just took a giant lunch bag and cut it so it was 10 inches tall. Then I cut the paper 6 x 10 and adhered it to the bag. I folded the top down twice and closed it with ribbon. The paper is Bo Bunny, my favorite. This is super easy and super cheap way to package something small for someone special. You can personalize it anyway you want.

I punched out the scallop circle with the Marvy giga scallop circle and punched out holes in the scallops with a hand held punch. The circle was cut out with my creative memories cutting tools. Of course I had to add stickles on the image. I put them on the candles and on the "plate" that the cake sits on. I also added jeweled brads for some bling.

Paper: Bo Bunny, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink: Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Paper Bag, Stickles, Jeweled Brads, Hand Held Circle Punch, Giga Scallop Punch, CM Cutting Tools, 5/8 Inch Grosgrain Ribbon
