A Paper Bag....

Fridays, love them!! It is time for a new Tutorial Time With Speedy TV 
and Jane has challenged us to make a gift bag.
She has a great tutorial with fun suggestions for decorating
a paper bag to use as a gift bag, so stop over to check it out.
 This was fun and easy. I keep lunch bags on hand so the decision
 was to use brown or white. I decided to go with a brown bag.
 I went with Jane's suggestion to emboss it using a lattice folder 
and then the top with a cuttle bug border folder After
embossing I used a little ink to highlight the raised areas..Next I
cut the top with a MS daisy punch. I used a pretty oval cut out 
my niece gave me. It was cut with a Spellbinder die. 

The sunflowers
 seemed to be a good choice with the brown oval and brown bag.
 After coloring them I cut them out and stickled the bees wings.
 I cut the sentiment out with a couple Spellbinder Scalloped Ovals
and attached with a ribbon and brad. A little Fleur De Lis border on the
 bottom to fill in space. This was a fun one, thinking I willl 
do a couple larger bags and have them made up to go with
 some upcoming birthdays gifts. Be sure to check out my 
teammates blogs too. My sentiment is from the 
Cowgirls Rule Set and the sunflowers are from
 the Bring on the Sun Set.
