An upcycled brown paper bag and card using Xyron and Core'dinations products...



This week is another fun week as the design teams from Xyron and Core'dinations join forces for an incredible week of creative projects and prizes. I decorated a brown paper bag and made a matching card. :)



I started with a brown paper bag. I measured and cut the Core'dinations Cosmo Cricket cardstock, then sanded the pieces to reveal the embossed design.


Then I ran the cardstock pieces through my Xyron 9" Creative Station for an even application of adhesive.


I fussy cut some DCWV patterned paper and played around with the pieces till I got a configuration I was happy with. Then I adhered the pieces.
Here are the front, side and back views of the decorated paper bag.


Next, I gathered the scraps of patterned papers and cardstock and created a matching card.


Here is the card and some closeups!


Hope you will check out the rest of the design team projects from Xyron and Core'dinations. Lots of prizes to win! [click on the links!]
