Bag of Love


Remember the hessian (burlap) that I bought to make my own blocks?  Well, I had some left over so I made a little sack and tag for these challenges:

Curtain Call, Cuppa Cocoa:


CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, Blue - use at least one CAS-ual Fridays stamp or Fri-Die, and the colour blue:


Just Us Girls Technique Challenge, Inked Die Cuts


I didn't fancy the inked borders technique (far too messy for my liking) so I went for the white border and inked centre by leaving the die in place.  I made a stencil for the bag by die cutting the X and O twice, then sticking a thin strip over the O for a stencil font.


The cuppa stamp is Inkadinkadoo, and the tag die is CAS-ual Fridays.

  12. Cute burlap bag with the stenciling! Your tag is super! Your sponging is so soft and leaves the perfect white frame. Yes, this technique is very messy. Hope you give it a try sometime. Thanks for playing with us at JUGS!
