It's a wrap! ....and some winners! :)



Simply handmade decorated paper bag 

Hello there friends! There's a month-long celebration going on at the LESSology blog as we celebrate our first anniversary! :) LESSology Challenge #18: It's a Wrap! is totally apt for helping us wrap up a year of altered goodness..*winks* [pats self on back for coming up with this challenge *LOL*]


My gift-wrapping idea was to make my own embellishments from packaging materials. I filled the plastic compartments with buttons and "sealed" them with liquid embossing. Did a little stamping on an ice-cream stick and a piece of scrap canvas. Added a tag and a handmade felt bloom and my brown paper bag is all dressed up! 

All ready to house a handmade pressie! ) I'm thinking a personalized canvas? For a loyal reader?[psst...don't tell those who only leave a comment when I put "giveaway" on my post title...hehe..]. Just leave a comment telling me why you like to stop by my blog.

Supplies: Crate Paper patterned paper (tag), Hero Arts stamps, Plaid Clear Liquid Embossing, ice-cream stick, canvas, buttons, handmade felt bloom, tulle, twill, crochet bloom.
