Paper Bag Purse

Here I go again, jumping out of my box. Its a really cool world out there in craft land. Thanks to Youtube I made a paper bag purse. Scrapbook Place is doing some daily challenges. I check them out each day, and this one caught my fancy. I made it, but never uploaded it to contest.

I decided to use my paper bag purse as one of my swaps. The swap is Recipe card. We are given items we use for our card. This month it is 1 layer, 2 colors and 3 embellishments. The yellow is my one layer, added to a pink base gives me two colors. The flower and butterfly are two embellishments and the third one is the ribbon handle.

This is a side view showing the paper bag inside.
I found the instructions for making this on Youtube. The video is by Kristan  Wilson and you can visit her blog by clicking on her name. I don't know how to link to her Youtube channel, but I noticed on her blog that she has her videos on the side. So if you are interested in making this darling purse, you know what to do. Let me know if you make one of these paper bag purses and what you used it for.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care
