Good morning, everyone! I have a project created by design team member Ginger Ropp to share with you today 🙂 Ginger used the gorgeous Steampunk Debutante paper collection by Graphic 45 to alter a paper bag. I think this would make a great page in a mini album or a unique card to gift to someone.
After adding her steampunk “wallpaper” to the paper bag, Ginger tucked a few of the cut-aparts from the paper collection into the pocket and adhered them in place. She then added a small cluster of paper flowers in the upper left hand corner and draped Silver Ball Chain (#CH930-P) across the top and through a black eyelet in the top right hand corner….and what good is draped chain without any charms? …it’s not! So, Ginger hung a Medium Bronze Gear and a bronze jewelry connector from the chain.
On the front of the pocket, Ginger used the new Copper Heart Metal Filigree Embellishment (#023-C) and a Bronze Leaf Metal Filigree Embellishment (#672-B) as the base of her focal point. She then layered a small crocheted flower, mulberry paper flowers and a few gears from the revamped Medium Mixed Silver, Copper and Bronze Gear Charms. Here’s a close up of the focal point:
You can’t see it in these pictures, so you’re just going to have to trust me when I say that Ginger added one of the Wooden “Handmade” Tags (#W770) on the back with a few flat back rhinestones from her stash.
Since this is a paper bag Ginger was altering, she couldn’t leave it empty, so she added a black tag and matted it with one of the papers from the paper collection. At the top of the tag, she added a bronze eyelet and tied some vanilla striped satin ribbon from Stampin’ Up! to the top of the tag. Ginger glued one of the new Bronze Dimensional Butterfly Metal Filigree Embellishments (#8424-B) just below the eyelet and added some more bling from her stash to the center of the butterfly.
Another super cute thing Ginger did to the tag was add a belly band with another small tag tucked in behind. …don’t trust me, or just want to see? Sorry, you’re going to have to watch Ginger’s YouTube video to see this 🙂 I’m still glad you stopped by my blog today 🙂 Cheers and have a great weekend!
