Paper Bag Purses...

I have become a HUGE fan of Inking Idaho! All of her cards and craft projects are awesome! I always find something to try from her ideas!

These Paper Bag Purses are one of her many cute ideas! When I saw them, I knew they'd be perfect for my Activity Days girls. They are easy to make, and adorable to boot!

I made one for each of my AD girls in 'school themed' paper. Our activity was about the importance of education...perfect for Back to School!!


Here's a view from the side...


I filled each sack with glue and crayons. The glue was a tight fit...I wish I'd gone with glue sticks like I had originally planned!


We made cute little altered note pads too. This one was just an example that I made for them to get an idea of how they could decorate theirs.
I'm totally loving the paper bag purses! Think how cute they'd be to put gifts in for birthdays and holidays! Can't wait to make more!

Both yours and Inking Idaho's purses are so cute. This would be so fun for AC!!! I'll have to tell the ladies in my ward about this idea. I linked to this at somedaycrafts.blogspot. (I'm not home and the computed I'm working ffrom won't let me transfer a picture so I will add a picture tomorrow when I get home.) THANKS>

I saw these and now I am making 65 of them (minus the ribbon) for the PTA to give to teachers on the first day of school. I think they will love them!
