PTI Blog Hop


Its time for the Papertrey Ink customer blog hop. You can check out all the details here. This month's challenge involved a brown bag:
In honor of school going back into session everywhere, we thought it would be fun to issue a Brown Bag Challenge. We want to see what you can do to dress up, alter, change an ordinary brown lunch bag into a paper crafting work of art. You could modify it to become a gift bag with handles, create a card base by folding it in half (complete with a slide out tag), add a window to it or whatever else you can dream up. After the hop is though, we should all have plenty of inspiration to help us create amazing projects with inexpensive brown bags! We look forward to seeing your creations!
I broke out my new set, Tiny Treats: Halloween, to create a fun little Halloween gift or treat bag. The first thing I did was cut off a bit of the top and then punch the top with my fiskars threading water punch. Next I used various little images from tiny treats to create a background. I slipped a piece of scratch paper in my bag and then used my copics to color. Next I used my mat stack die to cut out a piece of white card. I stamped it with the coordinating stamp from Tiny Treats and added the little witch's pot. I colored it with my copics and added stickles for detail. I popped it up with dimensionals. Next I added some orange card cut with my scalloped die and added a purple swiss dot ribbon. Thanks for coming by!
