Papertrey Ink Paper Bag Hop!


This month's theme is Paper Bags!  I found an adorable idea on the Martha Stewart website.  Instructions for making your own Basket Bouquet can be seen by clicking on the link!


Cut cardstock using PTI's Mat Stack 3 die and then stamped the coordinating mat stack image from All Booked Up in pink.  Changed the Year of the Flower: Violet image to a hollyhock using pink and green Tim Holtz Distress inks.  Sentiment is from Asian Fusion.  Real hollyhocks were snipped from the side of the house while my husband was at work!

I think these would be the cutest and cheapest little baby shower, wedding shower, or birthday party arrangements ever!  I got a bag of 100 brown bags for $1.70!  We have all of the ribbon and stamps...now we just need to befriend a florist and we're ready to go.

Thanks for stopping by on the hop!
