Background Stacks Paper Bag for…. a Bag!

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Background Stacks Paper Bag for…. a Bag!

Spin it then Pin it!


There has to be some sort of irony in creating a bag for a bag doesn’t there…. Well if there is, it’s right here today!

I found these adorable foldable bags on Amazon from Sass and Belle and just knew they’d make a cute gift for someone. There is a rule though (ok, so it’s my personal rule….) but it’s ‘one for you, and one for me’ with bags like these….. I think I’ll go for the owl, no the fox, no the owl…. oh I’ll just buy more!

However, while I was thinking of packaging these up, it made me think that these would be great bags for people who are travelling, or who are perhaps going to festivals this year. Carrying dirty/wet laundry is never pleasant, but a lovely waterproof bag that stuffs down small is an ideal travel companion, and that’s what led me to using the Places You’ll Go stamp set!

So how about these bags then?

Tangerine Tango had to pair with the fox and that lovely Rich Razzleberry matches the Owl detail inside!

Love them!

Have a great week everyone!

    Love the bags you have made. Must look at the other bags on Amazon. I have got a pink one that founds onto a little flower bag . Got it from my local bag shop but they haven’t got anymore. It’s so useful.

  7. Lovely little bag, could be used for so much. I’ll have to look up that company and see if they sell in the US. Thanks for another great project and video.
