Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Way Back Wednesday Monochrome Big Bag Tutorial

Oh I love making larger bags than usual. I do like tiny little ones, but making a bigger bag with only half a sheet of paper does hit the happy zone for me!

And of course, with it being Way Back Wednesday, I took to my own blog for my inspiration and found this one from September 2014.

The monochrome look really struck a chord with me, and as we have the gorgeous Black and White paper in the main catalogue, it was a must to remake it with that, and then a different colour scheme for the ribbons.

Super easy to make, I reckon you could fit loads in there!

  1. These are lovely Sam. I like the look of the black and white papers but i dont naturally gravitate towards them. You’ve given me some inspiration, thank you.

  3. I love everything that you do! Those throwback Wednesday bags are a perfect way to use up my paper. I’m a demo of one year, been creative ever since I can remember and I love card making. Your BLOG inspires me so much! I live in California but I’m from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia…I am a long way from home. I’ve got a card going in the #GDP tomorrow…look for me. Thanks. Carole Anne
