First of all, I want to welcome everyone to the August 2010 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! It is so exciting to see so many of you here!
In honor of school going back into session everywhere, we thought it would be fun to issue a Brown Bag Challenge. We want to see what you can do to dress up, alter, change and ordinary brown lunch bag into a paper crafting work of art. You could modify it to become a gift bag with handles, create a card base by folding it in half (complete with a slide out tag), add a window to it or whatever else you can dream up. After the hop is through, we should have plenty of inspiration to help us create amazing projects with inexpensive brown bags! We look forward to seeing your creations.
I have included a Mister Linky list below for you to add your link to your brown bag project. You have until 11:30pm EST tonight (August 25th) to add your link to this list. THREE random participants will be selected to win a FREE Papertrey Ink stamp set of their choice. They will be announced and highlighted here, on my blog, shortly after midnight. We look forward to seeing all of your creations!
EDITED TO ADD WINNERS:
Kay Demonbren created this adorable little mini book made from paper bags. The detail she integrated was amazing and I also loved her fun color scheme.
Cassie K used paper bags to create this absolutely stunning flower. The dimension and style are just beautiful and I loved how it was integrated into her card design.
Kristii Lockart transformed a lunchbag into a fun little house, with the folded over flap serving as the roof. I love that she even added the dormer detail to the top to make it look more realistic. Such a fun project and perfect for back to school!
The three randomly selected winners above need to contact Customer Service with their free stamp set of choice as well as shipping information in order to claim their prize! Thank you to everyone who played along!
