Bag Lady....

Yeah - that's me I'm a bag lady! And today - I need YOUR opinions! So please, be sure to leave me a comment below to let me know what you think of these....

Let me explain a little. A local gift shop called me in need of some gift bags. Well, Jen to the rescue... So I made up some traditional gift bags, which I'll show you another time, but I've had this idea running thru my head for a while. Why not a little lunch bag all decorated up and 'pinned' closed with a clothespin? So, I thought I'd whip a couple up. And I love them.....but, Andy, the dear husband that he is, well, he put some doubts in my head. He told me that they look like a brown paper bag. Ummm. Yup. That's what they are.....
What do YOU think? Would you love to receive a gift packaged in this little ditty???


Here's another that I crafted quick....


That's all, boys are fighting. I'm outta here!

I really like this one. The other one was neat, but I think getting a gift in this one would be very cool.

I think they are both cute Jen, but my fav is the 2nd one ... maybe because there is less "brown paper bag" showing? ;-) I really like the idea of decorating the clothespin for the closure.

I love them both! I don't think "brown paper bag", I think kraft paper, and I love kraft paper! Once again, another great idea just running around in your head. Good job!

I would love both, but I would agree that I like the 2nd one best...but I just like the colors better more than anything :D Great little bags, either one...and I totally understand about the boys fighting and ruining scrap time!

I think both are nice, I agree that the bags can be considered Kraft/Crumb Cake.
