Altered paper bag

Hello, first of all I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year. 
I hope 2019 brings you joy, happiness and good health.

Today I'm sharing this altered paper bag.

I  removed the handles and then folded the bottom of the bag to the front and placed 
double-sided tape on the edges to create a pocket.
 I coated all the edges of the bag with white gesso.
There's a small altered paper bag inside the bag and in the front pocket are 5 tags.

I distressed all the edges using distress ink. 
To decorate the paper bags and tags I used the absolute gorgeous papers and flowers from 
Prima Marketing "Georgia Blues".

Besides the papers and flowers I also added tulle, pearltrims, a beautiful vintage filigree floral button, cheesecloth, fabric flowers and lace trims.

It's was a fun project to make and it shows how a simple paper bag and be transformed 
into something pretty.

Thanks for stopping by the Crafteezee blog!

Hugs, Henriëtte.
