TOMIC- use a paper bag

Hello everyone! I wanted to get in on TOMIC's challenge this week and it was to use a paper bag and this...



photo for inspiration. When I first saw this on Monday I had grand intentions for my paper bag...I was going to make an album, however, I got myself busy with too many projects and I didn't have time. It seems though that everyone entering the challenge was infact just dressing up a paper bag and I wanted to do something different. My first idea was a luminaria, but it seems a white bag would have been better and I didn't have one. So, this...



 ... is what I cam up with. I'm not sure what to call it, but I DID use a paper bag, I just cut it into 3pieces for my project. This is what it looks like on the inside...



 ... sort of like an accordion folder. You can put little gifts, maybe money or a gift card and a tag, whatever you want.  I gave it a velcro closure so it has room to grow,lol

Here are a  couple more views...





I've colored her up with copics, though I'm not entirely happy with how her pants turned out, sometimes you gotta just let it be. Hopefully this week, I'll be able to get some more distress ink coloring done, but it takes me ages and I've got tons of other projects I'm working  on right now. We will see. That's all for today, all be back here early in the week with my Sassy inspiration for you and hopefully I'll be able to show you some of the other things I've been working on as well.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
