Brown Bag Pocket


See below for detailed instructions or hop on over to{ Beth’s Blog}

Take a lunch bag with bottom flap facing up

 go down 5 ½ “ and score

 turn and score at 2 “

fold up at the 5 ½ and down at the 2”.

Now cut the following to decorate


Plaid B&t 5 ¼ x 5

Rose B&T 5 ¼ x 2

Zip Strip 5 ¼ long

Black CS ¾ x 12 use as wrap for card layer zip strip over this.


I used our new Art Philosophy Cartridge and my cricut to create the creative rectangle that I stamped in.  For instruction purposes I will share an idea that a dear friend of mine shared and that is to mentally label your key pad as follows…..

Then I can say A5 and you will know what image I want you to cut.  For this one you will have no special buttons selected along the left.

Colonial 1 ¼ “ stamp inside with black ink

Black 1 ½” layer under above.

I used foam tape to attach these    

Lastly I used the bling Pins, leaving plastic tips on I applied liquid glass to these and put under saying.

you can put candy, cocoa or tea packet or a gift card as i did inside the pouch this creates.

Hop on over to {Beth’s Blog} for another great idea!
