MIM #142

MIM's challenge is to decorate a simple bag with 
stamps, ribbon, tags, well you get the idea!
Just have fun!

To say it's been a busy week is to understate! 
Out of town family, cooking for 20+, the flu (last week), being a guest designer on WM,
shopping, baking, ice skating and endless washing, well you probably had the same wonderful fate!
Wouldn't change any of it (well maybe a cook, and a maid or 2!)
But couldn't let this week's MIM pass. Had to make a bag to carry 5 sets of tags I made for 
galfriends. We get together for a Girl's nite, and of course a little something for each one 
keeps us giggling from start to finish!

I keep all those wonderful acrylic boxes the stamp sets come in, and reuse them when needed.
These are a set of 8 tags for each gal.
Should have put the PTI tags in the showy window (duh!) but you get the idea.
Simply remove PTI's band, and replace with dp. Little cork tag decorated with a die cut deer from In the Meadow, and a banner with each gal's name.
All tags are die cut from PTI's Tag sale collection, and Limitless Layers Ovals.
All cardstock PTI.

Decorated brown bag with Limitless Layers Circle to resemble a Snowglobe.
Hard to see, but snowflakes are embossed onto Aqua Mist circle, die cut copic colored images from Snowglobe glued on, as well as sequin snowflakes.
The base is a die cut Vintage Picnic Basket in PTI dotty Pure Poppy.
So much more festive that showing up with a plain paper bag, don't you think?

Melissa is always on target with the best ideas. This one was super simple,
and super quick!
You have today and tomorrow to join in the fun!

  1. Beautiful tags, and a good idea to repurpose those acrylic boxes! I don't know how you find the time to make all these wonderful projects! Oh, and congrats on being guest designer for WMS! Awesome, and well-deserved!

  2. Oh Nancy, the snow globe decorated bag is so cute!
    I have been hoarding those acrylic boxes ~ but really like this use for them. May have to part with a couple for Christmas gift giving :-D

  3. What a cute little bag!! Love the little stamped images and the gingham ribbon is the perfect touch!

  4. Oh my goodness you have been busy and the flu to boot! Yes, a made and cook would make things even a bit more perfect.
    Love your tags and bags . I keep the clear boxes too.

  5. What a fun gift! The tags and bag are wonderful.
