lessology challenge 3 ~ brown paper bag

Hey, its Challenge #3 at LESSology, I am having lots of fun I hope you could join in too!

LESSology challenge #3 is - The Doggy Bag Challenge


We all have and love those doggy bag right? Now they are not just good for your sandwich lunch only, I use the brown bag to make a little gift pouch...


I started with stitching all around, and then some acrylic paint...


followed by a little stamping with brown distressed ink...


and then top with any embellishment you like, I make a bloom out of the left-over muslin from my quilting project, a little burlap leave and a tiny scrap of paper


now fill the gift pouch with ephemera, and it is ready go to someone creative!


So come on and share your fun ideas with us at
