JAI 62 – Just Add a Box or a Bag

Hi Again

Four challenges in one day!  By the end of the day yesterday my mind was going round and round.  Just Add Ink’s Challenge this week is Just Add a Box or a Bag.  I really wanted to give this a go as I don’t tend to make alot of either.  I need to tell you that I spent AGES on this bag as I couldn’t get it to do what I wanted it to.

I wanted to make a bag charm but do you think I could find any beads or charms??? I really need to clean up my room and label things.  I could’ve used my mum around to make one as she’s the bag charm queen.  This is what I came up with in the end – rather plain but I was over looking for beads!

Products Used:
Cardstock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Love Letter DSP
Ink: Basic Black
Stamp Set: Punch Potpourri, Art by Design
Other Products: Textured Embossing Folder, Basic Black Ribbon, Scallop Circle Punch, Antique Brad, Heart Punch, Circle Punches, Brads, Scallop Trim Border, Chain from my son’s Converse runners.

Thanks for taking a look.

See ya
