Mini paper sack....

Good morning! It is an icky rainy morning here in Chicago.....but I have the day off, so it will be a perfect day to craft! Remember last week, when I said I was addicted to altering these cute little paper sacks? Well, I am......I think I need a 5 step program. (Along with my glittering problem! LOL!) I love that this "canvas" is so small and I can finish a project within a half an hour. Plus, It is a great way to use up those small scraps you can't bare to part with! This one was made for my girl......for Valentine's Day. I wrote my love letter to her on the tag, and slipped it in the bag. I used bits and pieces from Jenni Bowlin. Sassafrass, and a left over pink flower cut from my Cricut.
The chipboard star was sprayed with silver Shimmerz spray, then glossy accents was applied, and clear Martha Stewart glitter was sprinkled on top. I love the contrast of the dark gray here!

I am loving the dimension these little bags have after I am done! Lumpy.....bumpy....just like I like 'em! ; )
I am so glad you popped on by today! Thank you for taking a little peek!
Have a wonderful Monday!!!!
