spring is here people! Let's grow something!

Now Read this!! April 2011 Blog Hop!

My first "blog" candy project, aka ( blog hop prize) is a gardener's gift bag. Being the lover of all things Dollar Tree, I bought 2 of these gift bags for a dollar, and using the collage pictures from Pennywise Arts, I covered them in O'So sticky paperback tape from Pennywise Arts, cut them to size, and then covered the picture in cardstock, and stamped on the bag itself using a stamp from Stampin' Up. I then stamed the word Sweet on cardstock and covered it in the sticky tape, and then in Terra Cotta colored microbeads from Pennywise. I framed it with cardstock and scrapbooking paper, and then attached all the pieces with Mono adhesive. I put a bow of handkerchief ribbon on it an got springy, and filled it with assorted gardening goodies!

If you WOULD LIKE TO WIN THIS BAG, please leave a comment about it along with a way for me to notify you, if you have won!

I loved the first bag so much, I made another in bright yellow, using another collage picture from Pennywise Arts and covered it with O'So sticky tape and then with clear microbeads. I backed it with cardstock and then scrapbooking paper and applied it to the bag with Mono adhesive. I made a big bow with bright daisy ribbon and filled it with all sorts of flowery goodies!

If you WOULD LIKE TO WINT THIS BAg, please leave a comment about it along with a way for me to notify you if you have won!
