3-D Saturday Inspiration!
A couple of weeks ago I mentioned here that we'd soon be having a 3-D Saturday feature once per month for those who enjoy making projects other than cards and scrapbook pages. Well here it is -- our first 3-D Saturday share! As you can see, designer Melissa Craig has made a darling little card tote, otherwise known as a "tube bag" or "box bag" to inspire you this week. To create this, Melissa used the "Teddy Frame" set (one of our many FREEBIE sets!) along with a soft blue, textured cardstock and some pretty floral paper. The floral brads on the handles mimic the floral pattern of the paper so prettily. Melissa even added an adorable bag tag using her scalloped circle punch and some baker's twine -- what tote is complete without one of these?
Here's a peek at the coordinating cards that the tote contains. Aren't these sweet? Each one measures 4x4-inches. Melissa even hand-made envelopes to match!
These little card totes are super easy to make, and totally customizable with different papers and digis! They make fabulous little gifts, too! If you'd like to give this project a try, I found a super easy pattern HERE at "Aunt Annie's Crafts". The pattern is just for the basic bag, not including handles or accents, so you'll need to use your imagination there (not hard, I know!), but it does include templates and directions for various sizes of bags to get you started.
Melissa will have another wonderful 3-D project to share with you next month, so be sure to check back. Have a wonderful weekend! :-)
