Paper or Plastic? Challenge #3


I have been reorganizing my stash (My sweet DH redid my room...new floor and furniture) and stumbled upon some paper bags in various sizes.  Hmmmm....why do I have these again?

So because I need some inspiration...

Challenge #3:  Paper Bag Challenge:  Use a paper bag (whole or part) somewhere on your project.

Hey, Design Team!  What'cha got?

  4. Oh, I have been keeping a few Starbucks bags just for this type of activity. I trim the handle, unfold the rolled up paper. It is great for using in place of border paper strip, etc as it has texture, dimension, and great kraft color. If your bag has white or other color handles, you'll get rolled paper in white, purple, etc. Back to the Starbucks bags - one side has printed stars. You could layer more stars on top or use paint, ink, pen, etc to play up the golden brown stars. Different seasons lend to sayings to trim off bags. I have waiting to use a 'Celebrate' in purple from some store's bag. If you are making cards - I once made a card using a Starbucks bag as my paper, my source for embellishments, and titles and words. I thought the stars on Julie's was from a printed bag. Both layouts are inspiring.
