Altered Paper Bag

Hi All,

A very dear friend in a crafting group I belong to set a challenge to alter a brown paper bag. When it arrived in the post I thought it was to stop me hyperventilating at the thought of the amount of work to be done!

Anyway, I've been putting it off for long enough so today I thought I'd sit down and give it a go. It's been an interesting experience and I'm not sure it's one I would rush into again unless it was for someone very special but it's been fun and I am quite pleased with the final result. I apologise for the number of photos but there are 4 sides and a bottom to the paper bag!

The Front

Inside 1

Inside 2

The Back

The Bottom

Front and Back

Inside 1 and Inside 2

1 brown paper bag!
Loads of Bazzil spring colours cardstock (pink, yellow, lilac and green)
Various Nestabilities
Buzzcraft Fairy Doodles stamps
Basic Grey Magnetic Snaps (for the closure)
Pebbles Inc Candy Dots (for some flower centres)
Peel-offs borders and corners from stash

Thanks for taking the time to drop by and have a look.

Squirrel xx

WOW Squirrel: are you sure this was a plain old brown paper bag? It's unrecognisable. You've made a fantastic job of it. Well done :)
