Happy Monday to you! What a great day to start the week. Not just because it is Monday but because we have been blessed to see it and be a part of it. It has been raining like crazy here in PA. It rained from last week Monday to Saturday morning, stopped Saturday afternoon, and then started again Saturday night and hasn't stopped. But that's okay because it gives me an opportunity to focus on unfinished projects and to let those creative juices flow. Well the juices were definately flowing over the last week. I went to work on a Paper Bag album, which I will post soon, actually two albums, and had such a great time with them. I wanted to make an album that was a bit different than the ones that I had recently seen. Well God definitely answered the prayer of my heart and He also showed me a new kind of card.
I cut out a 1" half circle on the right side where the opening to the pocket is. Inside is a place for a trinket, photo, gift card or anything else. I happened to cut out a tag and made slits for a gift card to be inserted.
I will definitely make some more of these "Brown Bag Greeting Cards". I think they are just so cute and a perfect way to send a gift card or memento through the mail. Once I write my note inside and address the card, I will adhere a clear label to seal the package. This is also a safety precaution so that if the label has been peeled back, I will know if it has been messed with.
I also used this design to create one of my paper bag minis. Oooh, wouldn't this be great as part of a Paper Bag Swap. You could use any color bag you want, embellish however you would like, you would just need to leave 1/2" for the binding on the bag bottom side, I will have to come up with a theme. :) I like this idea!! Let me know what you think and if you would be interested in something like this.
Thanks for spending some time with me, I really appreciate it! Until we meet again, have a blessed tomorrow!
