Fun stuff right? Well I had fun this week too! It's Brown Thursday so the Design Team created projects using brown or kraft paper. I took some of the brown that comes to my house from the man in brown and built my mixed media layout on it.


Forever Our Princess

I really love the sentiments in Unity's SMAK kits.


Did you see what you get today if you spend $60??





Now I want to share a fun idea using this special set for your holiday gift giving. Keeping with our brown theme here is a fun idea for gift packaging using brown lunch sacks.  Cut 2 inches off the top and punch with a Martha Stewart deep edge punch to transform this plain sack into a fun gift bag. Then you just embellish it with your favorite pattern paper and dies! I used some Simple Stories paper, Spellbinders die and Martha Stewart border punch to create a fun bag and card set.





Another tip for dressing up your bag: Try adhering two of the same punches like I did here with the {Martha Stewart Snowflake punch} with twine and a glue dot for a fun decorative accent to your gift bags.





Finish with a gem or bling of your choice and voila!
Cuteness huh? 

Well that's all from me today friends so I am going to send you on over to

Shilo!
