Paper Bag Mini - August Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Hello!!!

I am participating in the PTI August Blog Hop tonight, and the challenge this month is to incorporate a good old paper bag into our project!!  I created a super cute mini album (which has yet to be filled), along with a little keepsake packaging for it.  Both are made out of paper bags, and turned out just oh so cute!  Let me know if you want to see a video tutorial for this and I can make one for sure!!!

So pretty! Love the tag on the cover! BTW- you left a comment on my blog about the door hanger, I believe it was from the Locker Talk Cricut cartridge. I searched for "door hanger" on my Gypsy, which you can also do on Design Studio and picked the one I liked best- so I know there are at least a couple others on other cartridges.
