Magnolia Down Under - Decorated Paper Bag

Good Morning Everyone,

We have something a little big different for you today at Magnolia Down Under, this week we'd like you to decorate a paper bag for use as a gift bag.

I've recycled a brown paper bag that I received whilst shopping. It was quite tall (my Magnolia image is the standard size not a mini), so I had to come up with a design that filled the space at the top and bottom and the large flower ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts was just a perfect space filler. I've added some large pearl brads to the centre of the ribbon flowers too.

My papers are from Maja Designs, I've coloured my image with Copics and added a touch of glitz to the flowers and tiny liquid pearls dots around the image. The edges are distressed and inked with Antique Linen distress ink. The Tag and Flourish Dies are from Magnolia, the border die at the top if from MFT and I've also used the Spellbinder Nestabilities Dies too.

I'd like to enter my bag into these challenges:-

Midweek Magnolias - Anything but a Card
Simon Says Challenge - Anything but a Card
Allsorts Challenge - Any Die will Do
Simply Magnolia - Garden Blooms

Thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
