Tags In Bags with 3GJ

Hey everyone..welcome back for another scrappy post. Today I'll be sharing a project I made for DT post with 3 Girl Jam.  Tags In Bags!!

 I altered some mini paper bags from our local hardware store & made a tag to go into each bag. 

Here are the bags before....
 And here they are after....
I used different techniques on each bag...craft paint, Tattered Angels Glimmer paint, masks, dry brush technique and distress inking. I'll be doing a You Tube video later that will go into more detail of the above techniques & I'll do a demo of each one as well. 

For this tag I not only used the crinkle ribbon from 3GJ but also some of the vintage buttons & a piece of the canvas border strips. 

Here you can see some of the dry brush technique I mentioned earlier. I was so thrilled when I received my bag of 3GJ vintage buttons..they are gorgeous!!

Such a fun & creative way to re-use some mini paper bags & embellish them with some wonderful scrappy products from 3 Girl Jam.

Thanks for stopping by & checking out another scrappy project.

Happy Scrappin!!
