Yes, you should join us there and find more inspirations and fun!!


I noticed a new particpant at Design Team Showcase recently.  She linked up a paper bag greeting card.  I have LOTS of lunch bags since I only needed three for my turkey project…and don’t have any other use for them!  So, I watched a bazillion videos and created this card.  These are easy, fun to make, and come out awesome!

I cut off the end to make it straight, taped down the expanding part and the open end.  Then the base was ready to go!

While creating this all I could think about was a Victorian lady writing very elegant Thank You notes.



  1. Lunch Bag:  Cut off shaped edge, then fold in half, and score.  Tape together the following parts:  expanding bag area and top opening.  Stamp each side (any areas that will show) with Stampendous Classic #7 wtih Distress Ink – Olive.
