While reading Vicki's recent blog post, she made a Bag-A-Lope and posted a video showing how to make one. I was intrigued as I'd never seen one before, so of course I had to give it a try! I've had a pack of black envelopes for quite a while and seldom use them, so I figured I'd try to make one and this is the result. I like how it turned out and it's perfect for giving hand-made treats at Thanksgiving dinner! I used an unbranded mesh die along with some Lawn Fawn stitched leaves and added a punched SU! sentiment from the "Tags 4 You" stamp set. (Incidentally, if anyone knows of someone who has this stamp set and wants to sell it, please let me know! Blogging friends have stamped a whole bunch of sentiments for me from this set and they're all just about gone, and I hate to keep asking for favors)
I added 3 different colored enamel dots from SU! along with a twine bow. I cut the top edge with a pair of deckle-edge scissors. I didn't add ribbon yet as I don't know what I'll fill this with, but I can easily add that later. Thanks for the tutorial Vicki - I just love this great little idea!
I'm sharing this with the following challenges:
