Small heavy kraft paper bags are very versatile. I cut out the sides to use for backgrounds, and the top makes a perfect hanger for a stitched paper collage.

These little velvet buds add the perfect touch to a mini-quilt. I got them from Stampdiva.

  1. This is brilliant, Colette!

  2. I love this; funny I just tore off the handle off one of my bags. I liked the way it looked~ Great idea; love yours~xXx

  3. There's that beautiful purple velvet ribbon again, and those bag handles are perfect and indestructable used this way.

I remembered you said your wedding anniversary was in June, but could not for the life of me remember when in June!! so our days are pretty close together! we are both June brides! there were many June brides in my family, both of my grandmothers, my mother, both of joe's grandmothers too! hope all is well with you, got real hot in Lincoln today (100 degrees!) so with that said joe took me swimming.
