...Berry bag for the Papertrey challenge



Ed - The background is a roll of brown wrapping paper and the inks are all PTI palette inks, heat set with an iron - hope that helps.


Over on Nichole's blog - PapertreyInk are celebrating their 2nd birthday!! today's challenge theme was 'In the bag!'

Had an hour to spare this morning so I made this little bag for that challenge. I used the My punny valentine set in Pure poppy and Ripe avocado inks on plain calico, and detailed with a touch of ribbon.

I made it to hold my girls' hair scrunchies but it's good for toiletries too. There's a handy hanging loop at the back so you can hook it over a doorknob etc or it can sit flat on a surface - I made it with a square bottom for that purpose.

If you think you'd like to make one, leave a comment and I'll try to do a how-to - I already owe you a how-to but I'll try to get them done before week's end.

Hope it tickles.

  1. Hi Claire,
    This is really cute- I love the shape of the bag and handle. I was wondering what background you use for your photos? I like the kraft color!
