Inge’s Challenge

 Hello today’s i have a little altered paper bag to show. It is my dear friend Inge’s turn for a tutorial on the Whiff Of Joy blog to show how step by step how to transform a plain inexpensive bag into something  special for a person you care about. Talking about people you love… the theme over on Cute Card Thursday for this week is “Someone special”. All supplies to make this bag were kindly mailed to me by my friend Inge. The paper bag had a small acetate window on one side. I did not want to cover it up with paper.. although i was tempted. So i played a bit with my square Nestabilities and cut a smaller window out of my Design Paper, so the gifts would show though the acetate. It is not much more work… just measure roughly the size of the front panel.. don’t cut yet to size and cut your shape out.. than you cut your Design Paper from the bottom and left and right to size so the window would align up.

In our little monthly challenge using Whiff Of Joy stamps are now two more super talented ladies… Jorunn and Bev have joined in as well. I'm so excited about that! Jorunn, the lucky girl is right now probably working on her tan in Rhodes, Greek :-) I would love to sent you not only over to Inge’s but also to Jeanette’s blog and Bev’s both ladies came up with something cute too.

Oh… and most importantly.. Inge’s has some candy up today!!! Check it out :-)

Remember… tomorrow ends the drawing for my personal blog candy – while you are here… why don’t you add your name?
