ALTERED PAPER BAG

over at LESSology the altered art is a PAPER BAG
I LOVE A CHALLENGE LIKE THIS
I decided to decorate a paper bag to hold a gift.
the gift is an album for some friends of ours
they are celebrating their new home with a housewarming party
so I thought an album would be a practical gift .. 



I made it vintage style and recycled old paper into handmade flowers.







the chippies are from IMAGINARIUM DESIGNS 
"the butterflies and flourish"


this was a fun project ..

thanks for dropping by and leaving me some love 
in the form of a comment 
they are always very special to me
