"New Beginnings" printable journal by TRD - Paper bag Challenge..

this is my 2nd DT project for Tsunami Rose Designs.

i used her digi mini journal "New Beginnings" 

this is a short tutorial on how to decorate a
paper bag using TRD printable journal pages.

supplies needed: 
paper bag/ gift bag
printed journal page(s)
adhesive - i used my atg gun

fold the paper bag up until it's about 1/2 way.
glue sides so it makes a pocket.

use any deco scissors or edge punch
to trim the top of the paper bag

i also used the deco scissors to trim the paper, 
to fit the top & bottom of the bag
cut and glue.

cut out the envelope you want to use.
fold the sides and glue.

use the other 1/2 of the journal page, trimmed,
for the back of the bag.
i also used a sentiment from the envelope page
to put on the back

add some lace to the bottom.
i used a light lavender, 
to help balance the colors

add the embellishments and flowers.
tuck in the envelope inside the pocket.

ta da...
a cute altered paper bag that can be used
to give a gift.
you have 2 pockets...1 in the front, 
and the original pocket of the bag.

hope you enjoyed this project and tutorial.
stay tuned for more projects using Tsunami Rose Designs products.
