Peggy Loves Vintage! (and so do I!)

This week's challenge over at Bitten by the Bug was totally up my alley! We were given the pleasure of working with Peggy Loves Vintage images. You know I am all about the vintage!! : ) In conjunction with the image, we were to use the Inch bag from the Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More cartridge.

The first bag I created was with this darling circus image. Simply print the images on cardstock and use them the way you would use any stamped image.

I tucked a couple of tags behind the image to write a little sentiment to the recipient. I also added some ric rac, a button, and some red floss to dress it up a bit.

This second bag was created using another one of Peggy's sweet images! I used some Graphic 45 paper, a glittery chipboard heart, a vintage button tied with ribbon. I also added a couple of stick pins in. This bag I decided to add ribbon "handles." Don't know why, just liked how it looked! Instead of adding tissue paper to the inside of the bag, I added white tulle. It looks softer, more feminine than tissue paper.


These bags are perfect for giving gift cards or other small items. : )
Stop on over to the BBTB site to see what the other gals came up with!
Have a wonderful Monday!

Your bags are so adorable and the Graphic 45 papers you used are perfect with the baby image. I enjoy using vintage images in my work, too. I also loved your recipe box-I need to do something like that for my daughter & daughters-in-law. Thanks for your daily inspiration!
