Here is my project for the Catered Crop "Krafty Recipe Swap" Quickfire. The rules of this challenge was to use kraft paper in your project. I actually used it a few times, but you can really only see one. You can find out the details of the challenge here.
I made this for my Mom for Mother's Day. I love paper sacks, so I thought that a sack with a matching tag would be great way to package a little gift. For the sack, I just trimmed the top of it off that used a paper edger to make a decorative edge. A little seam binding tied in a fluffy bow, one of my crocheted hearts, a button, and DMC floss completed the sack.
Onto the tag, using my Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes & More Cricut Cartridge and my Gypsy, I cut out a long scalloped tag out of kraft paper and one out of designer paper. I added machine stitching around the designer paper tag and then adhered it to the kraft tag. My little girl is the My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Holly Girl stamp that I bought last winter. I did a little masking with a post it note when I stamped it (twice) in order to omit the holly in my image. The was cut using the My Favorite Things Oval Open Scallop Die-Namics. After I colored her with Copics and paper pieced her dress, she was adhered with pop up dots onto the oval. I also used the My Favorite Things Scallop Ribbon Border on the bottom of the tag as a decorative trim. Instead of holding the holly, I added a crochet flower and a pretty button. The sentiment is also from My Favorite Things, it was part of the VIP Girls Rule kit. I used this sentiment in my Mother's Day Card last year, too, I hope Mom doesn't mind!
For the third use of kraft paper in this project (first was the paper sack and second was the tag base), I made my own "chipboard" style letters. Using kraft paper and the Alphalicious Cricut Cartridge, I cut M O M out four times and one time out of designer paper. I glued the layers together and then covered them with some Diamond Glaze. I glued them onto the tag, and the tag is done. I attached the tag to the seam binding with a clothespin covered in designer paper and Modge Podge.
