Papertrey August Blog Hop Challenge

The PTI August Blog Hop challenge is to create a project using a paper bag.  I love tree stamps, so when I saw the latest from Heather I had to have it!  It immediately makes me think of fall, so it was the first thing I grabbed when I saw the blog hop challenge.  I started out making a gift bag, but then decided to cut it all up and turn it into a fall card!  Sometimes you just have to go where the inspiration takes you!  In addition to the leaf stamped paper bag layer, I ran a piece thru the crimper to add extra texture to the mat.

Have fun hopping around and checking out all the paper bag creations!
Smiles,
Julie
