happy birthday tacy!

it's in the bag - challenge!


Okay, June flew by way too fast.

It's time again for the Papertrey Ink senior design team challenge. This month our challenge was to use the coffee bags in our project. It's just about time to celebrate the 4th and for our family we have an extra special event to go along with it - my grandma's 75th birthday! We have a large family gathering planned at my parents house this weekend and I am looking forward to spending time with everyone and celebrating!

The stars are stamped onto the gift bag with acrylic paint and I made the window in the bag a shaker with some glittered stars and confetti. It's so easy to do! I filled a small cellophane bag that seals at the top and then used some super sticky double stick tape to adhere it to the inside of the bag so that it showed through the window.

I can't wait to give my grandma a special little gift in this bag, although the best gift is going to be spending time with my family.

Make sure you stop by the other senior design team members blogs to see their take on this challenge...
