From Here 2 Scrapternity March Crop

Happy Hump Day!!  It is a fine Wednesday, only a few more days until the weekend! 
Today I would like to share with you a project I did for the From Here 2 Scrapternity March crop.  One of the challenges was to make a spring bag or basket.  When I saw this challenge I got so excited because I had learned how to make a gift bag at the CK convention last year, from using a brown paper lunch bag. 

It is super easy!  You cut the bag to the desired height.  Then you measure cardstock about 2 inches longer than the actual bag, & one the same size as the bag.  Adhere the same size card stock to the front of the bag, score the longer cardstock to make a flap over the top. Once that is done, cut 2 slits on the fold & insert ribbon of your choice.  Once that is done, adhere to the back of the bag.  Find some coordinating patterened paper, & cut just a bit smaller than the card stock & adhere.  Find an embellilshment, buttons, die cut, or whatever your heart desires for the front flap, & adhere.  Then adhere a piece of velcro to it & the bottom part of the bag for easy open & closure.  Voila!!  a cute, easy gift bag!  You can make them smaller, like this one, or keep the entire length of the paper sack, it is up to you. 
Thank you for looking today!  Please stop back in the next few days to see what else I did at the FH2S crop.  & if you get the chance, please visit FH2S & say hello & check out the fun we have over there.  You will be glad you did.
Have a fabulous day!
