DIY - Gift Bags


 I LOVE to re-purpose a brown grocery sack!
When you go grocery shopping...ALWAYS say paper!  There is so much you can do with those paper bags!
Remember my mail art from a few weeks ago??????

These cards were also made from a grocery sack!
Start by "crumpling" your paper sack.  Add A LOT of texture...go ahead...squeeze it to death!
Then, add a little gesso. If the white isn't enough color...add some acrylic paint to the mix!
Then, take all sorts of scraps and add them to the paper.
Fold the bag in half and sew up the side.  Add a fabric scrap for a fun handle!

Don't forget to add those yummy candy wrappers! 
Thanks for stopping by!
Expect miracles, laugh often, and always color outside the lines!
