I thought I'd share another recycled card project - same idea as before, but with a larger bag.
Here are the ingredients...a plain old white gift bag and a super cute snowman card from my cute friend, Holly. :)
First of all, I cut the front off the card and then distressed the edges with sandpaper. Next, I mounted the card on green cardstock...because the bag was larger than the card. I used my sewing machine to stitch the card around the edges. And I distressed the edges of the cardstock with a scraper.
Obviously, since the bag is square and the card is rectangular, there was extra space below the card - to fill it in, I simply wrapped red string (I love using crochet thread, but I think I'm going to order this set to try.) around a few times, then tied a bow. Then I added this cute layered snowflake sticker next to the bow.
Did you notice the cute image on the inside of the card? I used my fun circle scallop punch to punch out the snowman. Since I had to cut part of him off in order to use the punch, I used the same distressing technique I used on the card front - simply sanding all of the edges. I used a little rub-on word next to the snowman. Then I added a circle punched from a coordinating patterned paper, punched a small hole through the center, and tied the tag onto the bag.
