Canning Gift Bag


So with challenge it is making a gift bag with a matching tag.  I actually made this one last.  Had to really thing about it.  Then I remembered that I had one of those We R Memory Keepers bag punch boards and I was thinking, sweet, I will make a bag and put buttons from the buttons dies on it.  I even went so far as to pull the dies out.  But then I was disappointed in the choices for paper.  So as I was searching my stash to look for the paper to make the bag I came across this canning paper.  I am sooooo in love with anything canning and fruits and veggies.  AND I am sooooo in love with October Afternoon.   So go back in time about a year ago,  I had one sheet of this canning paper and I really did not want to use it because once used it would be gone…..oh noooooo.   Well I went to the Scrapbook Expo or some other show and went to this wonderful booth that sold packs of one print of paper for an AWESOME price.  I think I got 25 pieces of this paper for $5.00.   Oh happy dance…. I know have tons and tons and tons of this paper to use to my content.   I will have to confess I bought a bunch of them (other prints of course) mostly October Afternoon.   Oh heaven!!  And to make it sweeter if I bought 6 packs, I got it for $20 instead of $30.   Of course when I got to CKC in March, I am checking out the paper again.  Such and awesome deal on my favorite papers.  OK, I am digressing.


Here is my bag and tag



See the wonderful canning paper…..please admire it now.   I made the bag from that punch board and the tag from the friendship jar die and accessories.   For FUN, I cut out a mason jar of pickles and put it on the tag underneath the vellum.  I thought it would look more like glass.   The gingham print is the reverse side of the canning jars.  Oh happy dance!!!!!   I was able to use the Papertrey Ink Get a Handle in It Die which fit perfectly.  This bag would fit a pound of coffee or may a skinny mason jar!   LOL

As far as the double stamping on the tag, I made a mistake and then tried again to see how to line it up better.  And then I decided that I really liked the dual stamping, gave it a little atistic flair!!!

I hope you enjoyed!!!
