Nuts About You!

Hi friends! It's my turn in the DeNami design team rotation to share an extra project today. I thought I would mix it up a bit this time and share something other than a card. How about a fun fall goodie bag!



It's that time of year again when the squirrels are scampering about gathering their winter stash! They tend to drop them on our heads when Max and I are walking LOL!!! This project starts with a simple flat brown paper sack. I folded the bottom portion up and closed the two sides with Scor Tape, leaving the top open. Next I added some MME paper to the front of the bag. A SB postage die cut was stamped with the scallop square, the squirrel and the heart shaped acorns from the {Nuts About You} set. These were all colored with markers. Some soft blue chalk was rubbed on the die cut piece for oomph, then it was wrapped with twine and added to the bag with foam tape. Two more acorns were stamped and colored on the DP.



Using the sentiment and another small postage die cut, I made a little tag for the goodies! It's attached with twine and a chunky espresso boutique button.



Add them to the pouch and you're good to go! See the little polka dot strip on the bag? There is another pocket here. Perfect for slipping in a handwritten note or small matching card!

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today! I'll be back a little later with the new ColourQ challenge!~Lisa

Super-cute! Great idea to put another pocket in there too for a card. The touch of blue with your fall colors is very refreshing!

Saw this in my email inbox via DeNami's blog and squealed (quietly, so as not to concern the family) when I saw this. I love squirrels, and this is so cute paired with the nuts!
