Yes, You Can Do It Too!

Yes, you can do it too! You could join The Brown Paper Bag Swap that I am hosting and have some fun getting creative with paper bags. I previously showed an example of a Paper Bag Scrapbook and now I am showing you 4 different tags that I made out of brown paper bags.The photo definitely does not do this tag justice. It came out so pretty. I used homemade paper for the background and it is really more of a whitish color not so pinkish. The gold and white paper on the dress is a brown paper bag that I crumbled up several times and then decoupaged the white musical note paper to. Then I add some gold paint and blotted it so it wouldn't cover all of the white up. After that dried I added more decoupage glue. I machine stitched the lace on and their is a gold heart button hand sewn on over the heart.
These 3 tags are just pictures I got from on-line shops and printed then I stitched them onto scraps of a brown paper bag. I rubbed the edges on an ink pad and added fibers and either eyelets or letters to them for embellishments.

I'm swapped out for a bit. Have a bunch of projects waiting for attention. Thanks so much for the lunch bag. I do love it! All the extras were super sweet of you. It is something that makes me smile everytime I look at it. I appreciate the time and thought you put into the whole thing.
