Aged Paper Bag Tutorial using Stampin’ Up Designer Series Paper
As you all know, I’m a fan of making use of paper and card efficiently. If I can make a box or bag that either uses half a sheet, then I’m a happy girl. This, like my Paper Box from Friday also uses the same amount of paper, but wow, do they look different!
This one uses just 4 score lines, 2 on each side, but it’s the ‘aging’ of it with the heavy use of a sponge and some ink, and that gorgeous tag on the front with it’s vintagesque stamping that seems to make this look poles apart from the Paper Box.
So I hope this one is a winner, I am still not hugely efficient at the whole vintage thing, but this is right up my street!
Here’s the video on YouTube, or do watch it below!
Paper – 6 x 12″ (15 x 30cm)
