Marcia: Paperbag Halloween Card

This darling card was our project for my last stamp club. It was fashioned from a lunch sized paper bag!!! It turned out so cute, Everyone just loved it. We folded the bag, flap inside almost in half, leaving just a little flap to tuck in under the ribbon. The inside and outside edges were swiped with black ink to give the distressed look. The raw edges of the flap were trimmed to neaten it. A flap holder was created with a piece of black cardstock and embellished with ribbons.  The second picture shows the inside of this card and the poem that was glued inside.

Special thanks to Aaron Brown's YouTube video on how to create the paper bag card, as well as Vicki Wizniuk's (CTMH consultant) for inspiring this design.

Recipe:Close to My Heart black ink, bigger brads, and Hooligans papers.
            Ribbons and mummy stamp from Michael's.
