Going green!

Well yesterday I told you that Jo Ann's project was a 'green' project. Can you see why? It is a gift bag. Have you figured it out yet? Still guessing?

Maybe this view will help. We used the bottom half of the lunch bag for this project. We used the whole bag. (Remember yesterdays blog.) No leftovers here. No waste. About a year ago, Jo Ann came down for an angel gathering. We each did a make and take and this was hers. She stamp lifted it from another company. We made a template and then traced it to cut out the patterned paper. Then we glued the paper to the bag. Sooooo simple.

Items used: paper lunch bag, Christmas patterned paper, matching card stock, angel button, wire, tt-215 jardin moss palette ink, and finally t-2925 holly swirls.

Tyler starts basketball practice tomorrow. It may be difficult for me to find time to post. I may have to send out the blog candy winner either really early or really late. Either way, you'll know something by Tuesday morning.
Hope your Sunday was specTACular.
