Be mine bag

I made this box in a bag for the Papertrey It's in the bag challenge, which was to make, alter or decorate a bag and also for the Color Throwdown challenge, which was to use Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip. This is one of my favorite color combos. I've been meaning to make one of these bags for the longest time, but every time I sat down to stamp, I'd forget! They are so easy! I think I'll fill it with candy and give it to hubby for Valentines day. Have y'all checked out the ribbon at Walmart recently? They have some really nice satins and grosgrains by the yard (they have some spools too). I found pretty close matches for Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky. I'm going to try to find more colors next time I'm there. I'll be back tomorrow with my card for the Stamp Something Challenge.

-Stamps-Priceless, So Many Sayings
-Paper-Riding Hood Red and Whisper white cardstock; Pink Pirouette DSP
-Ink-Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip
-Accessories-Satin ribbon (from walmart), nestabilities, corner rounder punch, circle cutter, round tab punch
