project bags

Here are the project bags I decorated for the girls who came to the
Cozy Crop House Mixed Media Weekend.
Everything they needed to make their altered book and their girl on canvas was in the bag along with some take home goodies.
These started out as plain white handle bags I purchased in a pack of a dozen at Michaels. I used Mod Podge to layer on dictionary paper, napkin, music paper, doily, and ledger paper on which I stamped each of their names. A pretty layered flower with a brad in the middle finished it off. It was a fun way to put together the project supplies and a pretty take home for them to use as is or cut up and put on a new project of their own!
The current challenge at Eclectic Paperie is to "do something with a bag" so I am entering this post there.
Thanks for stopping by!
