My second challenge over on Our Vintage Affair

I have just set the second challenge over on Our Vintage Affair - we're going to create BAGS!! These are the ones I have been working on most evenings this week.

For the 'gift bag' I've just covered a paper bag with cardstock and then decorated it. Any bag will do (especially the pick n mix sweet bags from Morrisons :O). I actually made the large cream flower from scalloped circle nestabilities - quite fun to do so will be making more of these) For the other bags I made a simple box for the inside and used my largest rectangular nestabilities to make the front, back and the flap. Splitcoaststampers have some bag templates and tutorials that are easy to follow if you feel like popping over and joining in.

Have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend

You had stopped by my blog and ask about the ATC booklets. Yes, I'm sure you can get them online, I did a quick google and this site came up. I'm sure you can find them in other places as well.
