Altered Paper Bag - Paper Sundaes

Happy Sunday morning to you!!!!!!!!!! Normally I DO NOT like Sundays...but this Sunday is different. It's special because I don't work tomorrow!! teeeheee.  I'm taking a little time off work this week and boy do I have lots of fun stuff planned. I'll tell you more about that in a few days!!!!!!!! ;-)))))

But right now I want to share with you an adorable, if I do say so myself, little altered paper bag that I made up for this weeks challenge at Paper Sundaes!!  I surely haven't played with my Sundaes girls as much as I would like to have, but I'm getting my mojo back and they have some great challenges coming up, be sure to check them out!

This weeks challenge is sponsored by Stamp and Create and we are having a Sundae Bar!!  What that means is you pick your favorite toppings - Black, Distress, Flowers or Sparkle. I have a little bit of all that on my bag. Hard to see in the picture but the flowers are sparkly!

The above photo is the inside.
The above is the back fo the bag. Helps keep it more sturdy too, so you kinda need this!!

I got this idea from one of my favorite cardmaker - Claudia Rosa from Pretty Pressings.  If you are ever feeling in a slump, her creations are sure to inspire you!!  For this bag I used a regular lunch size paper bag. I folded it down about 3-4 inches. The base part ended up to be about  5 x 7. I then decorated it like I normally would a card.

That cute little pilgram Tilda is colored with magnolias. Btw, she is actually called "Witch" tilda, but my friend one day said....she looks like a Pilgram to me...not a witch. Then I took the time to really look at her and're right.  That hat is definitely Pilgram...not witchy!!

Anyways, so my little Pilgram got some distressing around the edges (one of my toppings) and then I put some cheesecloth behind it. I've been seeing alot of this being used around the blogs lately and finally got my hands onto some. Geeesh...I was starting to feel neglected. The papers that I used are from Authentique. I think my last couple of post have used these papers. I just love them!!!

So come join us at Paper Sundaes this week in the Sundae Bar Challenge!!!

I LUV your paper bag card. I had to really study the different views to see how you had done it! It is so clever. I have seen others too, but just didn't take time to really look.
You did a fabulous job coloring Tilda. I too think she is a pilgrim!
Just a beautiful job all around.
