It's in the Bag!!!

Hi there dear friends!! I am so excited to share some amazing goodies that my dear friend Michelle from It's in the Bag sent me to play with!! She has a wonderful selection of the cutest bags as well as tulle, twine, and pillowboxes.

The first bag I played with was a cute little apple green gingham bag. My first thought was, "This would look fabulous with apples", and the idea was born!
I decorated the bag with some twine from It's in the bag, an apple and letters cut with my Cricut machine using A Child's Year Cartridge and the Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge. I added some October Afternoon Schoolhouse Patterned Papers, a scalloped border cut with a Papertrey Ink Scallop Border Die, Papertrey Ink Star Dies, a Papertrey Ink School Time notepad stamp and a Cosmo Cricket sticker.
I made a little notebook cover, book mark and two generic cards to put inside.

Next I used a small glassine bag from It's in the Bag, to make a sweet little thank you for a friend.
I filled the bag with 30 tiny tags cut with Papertrey Ink's Tiny Tags die and 6 doilies cut with Papertrey Ink's Doily Dies. This little bag holds quite a few goodies!!
I decorated the bag with Seam Binding from Memrie Mare and a sweet little Fairytale Rose from Prima. I also used a tiny tag stamped with Papertrey Ink's Tiny Tags stamps.
My next project featured a cute little pillowbox from It's in the Bag! I decorated the pillowbox with Pink Paislee Butterfly Collection papers and embellishments. I also made a matching card using CardPatterns Sketch for this week.
Here is a close-up of the box!! Such a great little gift! This little box hold ephemera that I will give to a dear friend!
I had a blast with all these sweet little goodies from It's In the Bag!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
I hope you have a fabulous week!!!
