Small project to share.........

Here is a little project that I squeezed in between my studying. It is a little "treat" bag for a Mother's Day gift. Pretty simple. I crimped the light pink cardstock. (My upline made these really pretty card fronts for a swap she is attending and it prompted me to rush right out and buy a crimper for myself.) I got the idea for the bag from Angie's Chic n Scratch tutorial for a Mother's Day bag. Her bag is much nicer, but this is my first attempt. The stamp is from the Merci set I got before I started as a demonstrator. The "handle" was made with the oh so very versatile Word Window punch. This punch has so many uses and is a must have. If you don't have one yet, you should. You can get one from me!!
Tip: Don't toss out any of those pieces you get from using the word window punch to make handles - they come in handy for other projects. I store mine in a little envelope and file them with their matching cardstock to use later!

WOW! Very nice Kim :) Glad I inspired (some call it enabling) you to get yourself a crimper. I love the Genie bag - they are great for teachers and bus drivers too!
