Paper Bag Cards

Paper bag cards are another fun "trendy" activity that some scrappers like to do. They are similar to the paper bag albums but they can be used as greeting cards for birthdays, anniversaries, get well cards, etc.

Supply List:
Paper bags
Stamps/stickers
Cardstock
Patterned paper
Inkpads
Markers
Embellishments (ribbons, brads, buttons, velcro)
Adhesive

Fold a lunch size paper bag in half and decorate the cover with your greeting card theme.

To add variety you can fold the bag less than in half and make room to fold in the extra paper for a closing "lip" and attach some sort of fastener (Velcro or ribbon works well).

You can decorate the entire inside of the card of just one-side.

There will be an opening where the bag opens. This is a great place to put money or an extra special insert.

These cards are unique and allow for your creativity to "shine."
