Dee Dee's Make and Take Paper Bag Envelope and Tag Tutorial

Instructions for assembly.
1. Remove all items from lunch sack.
2. Cut the bottom of the bag off along the bottom crease. The bottom piece is what is painted green and shown above under the mason jar.
3. Paint the bottom piece of the lunch sack with Shabby Shutters Distress Crackle Paint. Allow to dry.
4. Stamp both sides of shipping tag with a background stamp inked with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. Ink edges with an ink blending tool.
5. Cut out the mason jar, balloons with strings, and smile strip of patterned paper.
6. Outline the balloons with various colored Spring Stickles.
7. Cover the SMILE tiles with a think layer of glossy accents.
8. Adhere painted bottom of sack to shipping tag at an angle.
9. Layer and adhere balloons, mason jar, and smile strip.
10. Trim down and adhere pleated Maya Road trim and ribbon flower using Glossy accents.
11. Fold the remaining lunch sack to create a pocket. You should leave about 1/5 of the top of the sack showing after it is folded.
12. Adhere pink ledger paper to inside of pocket.
13. Adhere polka dot and striped paper to outside of pocket using Ranger Glue Stick.
14. Staple on remaining trim and lace to two sides of envelope where the striped and polka dotted paper meet. Make sure to staple all the way through the lunch sack to the back as this holds the lunch sack in place to create the pocket.
15. Add your tag to the pocket, and use as a card! :)

Hope you had a fabulous day at our Make and Take Madness event! :)
