One of my favourite colour combinations to project with is a Kraft colour combined with white - I just love it!! To me it is dreamy, soothing, kind of shabby and almost vintage :-).
Inspired by an extremely talented lady on youtube - Juliana - I created two paper bag tags - one I gifted to a lovely couple who invited us for an awesome dinner and the second set has yet to find a owner!
The two pictures below depict the front and back of the mini paper bag I used. The front and back of the paper bag I randomly painted with white acrylic paint. I folded the top of the paper bag over about 1 inch and punched holes through it.
On the front of the bag (above) I glued down a hand torn piece of white mulberry paper and adhered a square of Kraft coloured corrugated cardboard on top of that. I roughly tore to size a black and white image printed off the internet and adhered that to the corrugated board. I decorated with flowers, butterfly, lace, trim, string and burlap.
The back of the mini paper bag (above) I ran some string through my punched holes and tied it with a bauble. In the centre of my artificial flower I placed a porcelain rose. Some trim, a random strip of blue paper and my bag was complete!!
I used a standard ranger tag and glued a piece of recycled brown paper - punched a hole, threaded and knotted some hemp. Glued down a torn strip of mulberry paper near the bottom of the tag and centred a paper doily. Cut out a shape printed from my computer, distressed inked it with vintage photo and adhered to the doily. Stamped a sentiment in blue ink, tied a blue bow and added some white and blue flowers.
On the back of the tag I glued down a torn strip of blue paper - the same paper used on the paper bag. Next I cut a strip of Kraft wrapping paper and punched two sides with a Martha Stewart decorative punch. I crumbled it in my hand, straightened it out and glued down onto the strip of blue paper. Glued down a Petaloo white flower and my project was complete!!
These paper bag tags make awesome gifts and any colour combination can be used. This set I gifted and I will be uploading the second set I made soon soon.
