It's time for another fun-filled challenge at Papercraft Star.
#24 Green Holidays
Create an altered holiday gift, card or scrapbook layout
using recycled or repurposed items you already have on hand.
Our December Sponsor is Scrapfreak. We also have an AWESOME prize for you - Purple Pumpkin. I love all of their cute embellies. Be sure to link up for the chance of winning a darling Gingerbread Man Embellishment Kit.I also added stickers. One way to make your stickers more sturdy on your projects is to add cardstock to the back of them. I outlined mine with Kraft cardstock since it matched the color scheme.
I save plenty of paper bags from my local bakery. I dressed this one up for Christmas gift giving. I punched out squares and topped them with this cute little Santa!
To add more pizazz to the bag I decided to dress up the handles a bit. I had wire lying around and bent it in the shape of bag handles. Rachel also had a pile of beads (from a broken necklace). I strung the beads on the wire and Taaaaadaaaa.......I now have these cute handles for the bag.
I am also entering this project over at The Kraft Journal. If you haven't had a chance to check them out yet please do. They are having a fun Holiday Challenge.
