This blog hop has been a blast so far. I am so impressed with what my Team Mates have come up with for decorating their bags. Did you know that we all started out with plain brown paper bags? Nothing fancy . . . except for the Magic of Oz papers and embellishments. If I had small children or grandchildren, this would be such a fun project to do with them!
Here's my Magic of Oz bag:
I was so nervous about designing this bag. New to the Graphic 45 Design Team, it was one of the first designs I created for them . . . and, they were showing it . . . at CHA! Talk about jitters!
As you can see, I used one of the Graphic 45 Staples knobs, attached it to the bag and hung some of the Magic of Oz chipboard, a witches broom and Dorothy's basket from the knob.
Here's the other side with Graphic 45 Staple buttons *sewn* to the top of the bag:
In the spirit of Oz, this card will accompany the bag:
The flowers are fussy cut and popped up with Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Dots. Ruby Slipper Stickles were added to Dorothy's shoes (of course) her bow and the lion's bow. Then I added a tag to the pocket on the front of the card:
And inside, a pop-up card with a place that holds a gift card:
