Hero Arts September Challenge

Happy Thursday! You didn't think I'd leave out a Hero Arts Challenge, did you?? And because this month has 5 Thursdays, I am in time to submit my little creation for the first half of the challenge. September's theme is Everything Autumn + Simple Giftbags. Well, I combined both themes:


I love creating little bags or boxes and this one is super simple! I just covered a plain white paper bag with stamped cardstock! The background is colored with various distress inks spritzed with water and is stamped with the Friends Definition cling and the Ledger Cling. That sentiment is from the Leaf Prints clear set. And there is no autumnal feeling without a bit of felt for me, so I added some felt leaves.


Here you can see the side of the bag and here is what I started with:


Easy. And so many possibilities!

Have a beautiful day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa
