Papertrey August Blog Hop Challenge 78

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, August 25, 2010 @ 4:04 PM | ,

Hi There Blogging Friends! Here today to join along in the August Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. This month's theme is the "Brown Bag Challenge". Nichole challenged us customers to create our projects utilizing a brown paper bag in some way, shape or form.I made this Brown Bag Friendship Gift set using a brown paper lunch bag & the Papertrey Ink Friendship Jar stamp set. This set is full of so many fun images & PTI keeps tempting me with all the lil' Friendship Jar add ons & accessories sets! First up, is a Birthday card featuring a piece of 4"x5.25" brown paper bag that I embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I can't get over how close the color is between these generic grocery store brown paper bags & PTI Kraft cardstock! VERY economical - 100 bags for $1 but no where near the weight of the PTI cs :( For sketch inspiration, I played along with the Splitcoaststampers Challenge 295, SCS295.Next, is a closeup of the altered brown paper lunch bag border & tag:

Using the Spellbinders™ S4-242 Big Scalloped Borderabilities® Petite, I ran the brown paper lunch bag through the GC-001 Grand Caliber & created this decorative scallop border. Who would have thought a plain ole' generic brown paper lunch bag could look so fancy? :) LOL

Off to hop along to google over what all the other Blog Hoppers created! Thanks for looking!
