Quick Altered Canvas Bag

So I'm totally in love with these cute Canvas Bags that Studio Calico packages all my little goodies in.  I've been collecting them so I can alter a few for Teacher Appreciation week.

Tonight when I came home from work, I had my Studio Calico box waiting for me.  When I opened it and saw yet another canvas bag, I stopped what I was doing and quickly altered one.  I'm meeting a local friend tomorrow and knew I wanted to give her a few goodies so I quickly made this.  It literally took me twenty minutes to put together.

The supplies I used:

Canvas bag from SC
Glitz Chevron roller stamp (gosh I LOVE THIS THING!!!!!)
Hero Arts Ink (Tide Pool)
Ali Edwards stamps
Prima packaging (for the tag)
Prima resin flowers
Heidi Swapp Gold mist (sprayed the bag in a few corners. Since I sprayed it in a box, I dipped the tag into the paint and since it was corrugated cardboard, it gave it a cool effect.)
Basic Grey flower
Wood clothespin (to hold the tag)

Project Life update coming soon!!!

Hugs, T

  2. This turned out really beautiful. Those bags are adorable. (I'm still on the wait list for my kit, but I will have to give it a try!)
    I love how well you were able to stamp and add the details. Great job. You always have such wonderful ideas and projects.
