Well, once again it has been a long while between posts. You would think that I haven’t been spending time in my craft room. In reality, I am there every day making something, except for last week when I was travelling down to Phoenix and stopped to play in Bryce and Antelope Canyons. It seems that I have just neglected to make my projects into blog posts.
Today the challenge on Papertrey Ink’s Make it Monday is to create a bag out of patterned paper. This appealed to me as I am starting to think about Christmas bag and tag ideas. In spite of this, I ended up making a Birthday bag and tag. I found some Papertrey Ink sequin patterned paper in the right size to make a bag, and so the project grew from that. I decided to make a matching shaker tag from Papertrey Ink paper and sequins (Shakers and Sprinkles). I used a MFT balloon die to make the shaker. The Happy Birthday sentiment is also from Papertrey Ink’s Shakers and Sprinkles stamp set.
It was all pretty simple today and if I didn’t keep losing stuff in my messy craft room, it could have been made and posted in minutes. I am definitely going to make more of these bags, so thank you to Lexi for the instructions.
