Make a Bag, Lady

Hi Everyone
Boy I have been busy this whole weekend, getting cards ready for some upcoming classes. Since I was done early tonite, (anything around 11:00 p.m. or earlier is early for me), I decided to make this bag sample for my Make  A Bag, Lady classes  on Thursday and Saturday at 1:00 p.m. over at Stamping Buddies.  This bag is a quick project and the class is just  $5.00, that's a bargain!!!

I just had to make this cute bag topper to add to the bag and its easy to do with out any dies. Really adds to the bag doesn't it!!

If you book a seat for this class just bring:
 2 pieces of matching 12" x 12" paper for each bag you want to make,

Large scoring board (Scor-Pal or Martha's)

1/8" & 1/2" - 1" double sided tape (red line tape, scor-tape or if you don't have any, Stamping Buddies carries Xpress Blend dbl sided tapes from 1/8" - 1/2". Very reasonably priced & they work great.)

Any of your favorite punches that will make fancy edges on your paper.

A pair of scissors.

Any embellishments you might want to decorate your bag with!

Please RSVP at 513-891-CRFT or send an email to:

I will have extra score boards if you don't have one. Pam has some very pretty ribbon available to purchase for your handles if you need ribbon. Don't have the paper you want to use for your bag, don't despair, Pam has that as well, gorgeous papers.

I would love to see you in this quick and easy class.You will find you will use this easy technique whenever you need a bag quick and maybe you want it to match it to that card you've made or whatever. 

Hope to see you Thursday or Saturday.And have a great week!!
