Hola SpiegelMom Scraps fans! Pocono Pam here with my last post as Jody’s guest designer for January. Wow! This month went by quickly huh? Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it! For that reason, I was inspired to make a love card and altered paper bag!
I started this project off with a white 10” X 6” Celebrate Paper Bag, the Recollections Valentine’s Day 6″ X 6″ Paper Pad and some fun embellishments from the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop.
Next, after folding and gluing the bag to create a pocket, I added patterned paper from the paper pad. (Geesh…. say that 5 times fast! )
I adhered white lace on the bag along the top of the pocket.
The fun part began when I made pleats in the 1/4″ light pink & white check ribbon from the SMS Shop to place on top of the lace. (This did not come without a few hot glue burns! Yikes!) I added a bow made with the same pink ribbon and added 3 pink fabric roses from my stash.
Underneath the pleated ribbon, I adhered a string of pink Felt Fetti from the SMS Shop.
Beneath the lace on the right hand side, I layered a pink felt heat with a few cork hearts. I did the opposite on the upper left-hand side of the bag with a cork heart and a string of pink felt hearts. I tied a bow with a piece of sting I had in my stash.
On the lower left-hand corner I layered a cork and felt heart along with a Studio Calico Wood Veener Speech Bubble. As in previous posts, I touched it up with pink Wink of Stella Glitter. I was excited when bling I had in my stash fit perfectly into the “O” in “FAVORITE”!
To go along with the bag, I quickly created a card using paper from the pad. I added more felt hearts and this cute Greeting Farms Image Stella.
I covered the back of the bag. The inside of the bag can be used for goodies to give as a gift! You can punch holes at the top and add a ribbon for closure or leave it as is!
Thank you all for you stopping by today and all Jaunary long! I had great time! I hope you enjoyed my posts and will continue to visit Jody’s blog. You will definitely will find inspiration here. Jody is always adding great goodies to her shop as well. Try her CORK embellies! They are my FAVES and I used them on EVERY project this month!
Take care my crafty friends! Thanks for taking a peek!
