Make It Monday #142: Decorated Kraft Bags

           Imagine what loveliness you can create by stamping on plain kraft bags.  It might inspire people to not want to open up the gift to see what's inside, because the outside is a gift!
          This is a fun, quick gift packaging idea showcased by Melissa Phillips. I love how beautiful and "one of a kind" each bag can be.

PTI November Blog Hop

 photo credits:  :::1:::  :::2:::  :::3:::  :::4:::  :::5::

This month's Papertry Ink Blog Hop challenge is to use the house template provided and create a fun whatever you desire with it. I must admit I struggled with this challenge and did not even finish until after nine last night.

I finally decided to make my house into a little snow scene to sit on my wall unit. I used Winter Hills to create a snowy background scene. To the house I added icicles make from Ranger white enamel.The little tree in front of the house is two cozy coffee tree dies cut in the middle so I could make a 3-D tree. To the door and windows of my house I decorated with Love Lives Here Holiday inked in pine feather with tiny red jewel accents. I cut windows into the house and added PTI vellum colored with Harvest Gold ink. I ran the house through my GC using the Aida IP and the Cane IP for the roof top.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. Enjoy the rest of the PTI Blog Hop and have a blessed day!
