Brown Bag Challenge - PTI Blog Hop


It is time once again for the PTI Blog Hop. The challenge is to change an ordinary brown lunch bag into a paper crafting work of art.  


I chose to create a brown paper bag album with tags. I stacked 3 bags together and sewed down the middle to create a book that has 12 pages and 3 pockets. Then the fun began!!!

The front cover has doo dads that were created by using the Beautiful Blooms II dies using a lot of different papers and buttons.



The background paper is from Wild Saffron from K&Company paper pack. Lots of double-sided pattern paper made this much easier. Did you notice the library card for journaling? LOVE IT! 



The plan is to use fillable frame dies and mat stack dies to create frames for journaling on each page. But that is a work in progress.



I used Spellbinder's label one dies, squares, and labels three to create double-sided tags for the pockets! I love the turquoise stripe/dot ribbon. 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Hopping Everyone! ~Rhonda
