It's in the Bag

Have you had a chance to play along with the weekly 3D challenges over at Papercraft Planet yet?

This week, our challenge is being sponsored by Kelleigh Ratzlaff from The Digi Chick!. Kelleigh has generously offered a $20 gift card to her store for the best bag! In addition, the winner will also get a $5 gift card to ANYTHING on the Digi Chick store!

Kelleigh's templates (which many of you have seen me use before) are AWESOME and so easy! You just print the design on to your patterned paper, cut, score and glue! Or, if you want to get fancy, you can use digital papers and print it that way, then you always have an instant, printable, bag on hand!

Here's a look at my bag:

I used Kelleigh's Funky Bag #2 template, printed on the back of some polka dot American Crafts DP, to which I glued a piece of textured Pink Pirouette CS for the front flap. I added some Chocolate Chip ribbon to hold the flap closed and a layered felt embellishement (also American Crafts). I stamped "Just Because" from Verve's Fluttering By in Versafine Vintage Sepia on Pink Pirouette CS and punched out with my Word Window Punch to add to the front of the bag and it was done - ready to fill with some candies or other small gift.

These little bags would make perfect baby or bridal shower favor bags, gift card holders, graduation money holders (picture them done in school colors!!), and just about anything else you can think of!

OK, so take the challenge -- create a small gift bag, and upload it to Paper Craft Planet. Use the tag 3d11. You do NOT have to use one of Kelleigh's templates to win -- but they are so easy and fun, we know that you'll want one :) We'll pull it into the album and pull a winner next Tuesday. I can't wait to see what you make!
