Hello everyone Challenge 22 is live over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog. Our theme for this challenge is
For my DT project for this Challenge I decided to alter a paperbag. I used TH DI in Weathered Wood and edged all of the outer edges on the bag itself. I then added some white burlap and some fringe trim from my stash and took the first page from the G45 Christmas Emporium as my main image. I love G45 papers but never want to cut them lol so I thought for this project it would be the perfect time to used one of these sheets. I distressed it with my TH distress tool and again edged it with the Weathered Wood. I punched some paper snowflakes using a snowflake punch and covered them in a mixture of stickles Diamond and also some crackle accents (all available from That Craft Place). I then created a cream seambinding bow to the bottom left corner and just had to add a chunk of bling with an acrylic bauble. In the bottom right hand corner I created a cluster of flowers (from my stash) around a gorgeous die cut heart which started out in life as white but again I used some TH DI in Vintage Photo to make it tone in with the kraft colour of the bag. I then tied one of the gorgeous brass keys into a seambinding bow (both available at TCP).
Just for a bit more texture I added some snowflake effect dust to the Christmas tree and some more spots of Stickles just for a little glint here and there.
I hope you like my project for this Challenge. This bag will be housing my Mum's Christmas gifts this year and I am sure she will love it.
