First of all, I painted the “bag” with craft paint. Then I covered the front with some pretty patterned paper and distressed it up a bit with ink and a sanding block and set it aside. I stamped the à la modes image and and did some coloring and otherwise paper pieced the rest. Here’s a close up of the layers and the dimension I was able to achieve. I popped the tea bag label up on foam bits and added a hemp cord “string”, as well :)
Then I cut out the new Die-namics Looped Border and molded it into an arch that would fit the handle of the “bag”.
I glued that down and added a seam binding bow with a Razzle Berry button tied on with hemp cord. I cut out a Die-namics Traditional Tags STAX
die cut, stamped a sentiment on it, and attached it under the button.
Here are the products that will be released on December 11 that I used on this project:
