Papertrey August Blog Hop Challenge




This is my first PTI Blog Hop.  The challenge was to use brown paper bags for our projects.  I took the simple route and used dies and  Beautiful Blooms II  to make my card.  I cut out 8 flowers from each of the 3 dies from a brown lunch sack.  I cut strips from the lunch sack and ran them through my Big Shot with all 3 dies, getting 2 flower of each size with each pass.   I then stamped the corresponding image on each die-cut flower.  I glued them together and sewed on a button to create my finished flower.  


Here is a close-up of my lunch bag flower.  TFL

Supplies:
Stamps:  PTI Beautiful Blooms and Birthday Bash Sentiments, Hero Arts Background
Ink:  PTI Hawaiian Shores, Palette Noir Black, SU Sahara Sand
Paper:  PTI White
Accessories:  PTI Hawaiian Shores button and PTI twine
