Paper Bag Cards

I've been making quite a few cards of late -- especially since joining  Shelter: Postmarked!
This duo was made from brown lunch sacks.
These are perfect for sending "as is" 
(with little notes tucked inside) or...
... for using as a gift envelope and including little something extra like a gift card or piece of cash!
Here's a little tutorial to show you how I made them:

Supplies and Tools: Paper Bag, Barnwood Pretty DP, Tattered Florals Die (Tim Holtz), Paper Doily, Small Circle Punch, Square Punch, Eyelet Lace Edge Punch (Martha Stewart), Hello Stamp, Script Embossing Folder (The Paper Studio)

These are really pretty! I had no idea it was a paper bag. I love how you can tuck something inside. A great project!

What a sweet and fun idea, my friend. My husband and I often give money as gifts and I am always looking for ways to give it :) Thanks for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. I hope to see you at the party tomorrow. Hugs!
