Dressing up a plain brown bag...

take a plain brown handled bag...
these I got at the Dollar Tree...
2/$1.00...
and then I used a glue stick and glued the envelope onto the bag at an angel...
just sign your card and stick in the front...
ME cards are great...
they come with the cutest envelopes...
and you can so embellish them so much more!
you can do this for any occassion and have the brown bags on hand...
any card will do...
just have fun with it...

Great idea, and I got a kick out of your Spring countdown. It's going to be a whole lot more than 90 days 'til it feels like Spring has sprung here!

I like this idea specially because the receiver doesn't have to look all over for the card. Smart!!

This would be a great idea to do with all of the bags that I seem to accumulate from stores. You know, the kind that have the shop's name all over, but are too nice to throw out?! Thanks for the inspiration!

Yes, I did get the $ Thank You, Thank You, I did squish the trees in the box with your stuff, but I did NOT ship the Old Books I have for you, I just could not afford the extra postage this week (hopefully this next week).... I hate to say it, but Now I have $20 in my pocket & .85 cents in paypal.... Needless to say, this month has been difficult. Thank You Jesus, that I know the Real meaning of Christmas is The Birth of Jesus, but I am feeling a bit sad, since this is going to be the first year ever that I have Not been able to buy anything for my family.... But I am trying to have the Christmas Spirit in My Heart & Friends like You sure Keep Me Positive!
I have been Blessed to Have a friend like YOU! Thank You Tete, for always being there with exactly the words I need.... 2011 is going to be a much Better Year~ xox

I do thing like that every now and then. Years before we moved out of our old house, my dad threw out a nice box that his silver plate came from when he worked over 25yrs. Anyway, I took it and kept it in my closet and one day I thought of something. I took one of the old Christmas card and glued it and decided to use it as a Chrismas CD box. It was perfect.
Have a good week.
