Cotton Bags

Good Monday morning!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  We have a great challenge for you this week over at the Kraft Journal.  This week's theme is Paris/France.  For my project I used these adorable "Cotton Drawstring Bags".  I started out by using some iron on transfer paper.  I simply chose an image from an Etsy shop called By Digital Paper, the Paris Tags sheet, and followed the directions on the transfer sheet package.  These little cotton bags were perfect to use the iron on sheets.  I had no problems transferring the image.  I then added some lace to the top of the bag and ran some "Hand Stained Bias Tape", in Vintage Winter White, Rose Petal Cupcake, and Rose Beige.

For an added embellishment I use some "Silver Bottle Caps", which I customized by painting them in an Heirloom white paint.  I then stamped a crown image onto some patterned paper and punched out using a 1" circle punch.  Next using a 1/8" hole punch I punched a hole on the top edge and added a jump ring and attached the embellishment to the seam binding.  

These sweet little bags came out so adorable!  They are perfect for creating sachets, or even using them to package a small gift.  

I just love how the bottle caps came out and I know I will be recreating these little bottle caps again!

For more inspiration be sure to stop by the Kraft Journal to see what the other ladies have for you.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I'd love to see what you create!
