Paper Bag Card


Isn't this the coolest idea?  A card made with a paper bag for the base?  I thought so.  :)

You can see Aaron Brown's videos on YouTube where she shows you how to make one.

Watch the videos here:

Go make one for yourself and then go to Aaron's blog, because she's offering a chance to win some great blog candy.

My card is very similar to Aaron's.  I tend to do that when I'm trying out a new technique, template (or whatever it may be), for the first time.  After I get a feel for it, it's so much easier to do something different.  It was really quick to make and I can see myself making one of these again.  And what a great use for all those paper bags!

Happy creating!  :)
