Try It Tuesday~Oh, what you can do with a paper bag!

Hi guys!! Just an idea for Try It Tuesday~
paper bags and scrapbooking!!
I did this for the Curtsey Boutique~
Take a look...

Project Instructions~
1.     You will need a 5X7 Kraft paper bag and white acrylic paint. 
A ruler will help you mark off the space that will be painted white.

2.     Apply the paint, in lines, on the paper bag.   Let dry.
3.     Cut red pattern paper into ½” strips.
4.     Glue them in the space that was not painted
5.     Cut a 3”X3” Navy blue cardstock and glue it to the left top corner.
6.     You should see a flagJ

7.     Take the Burlap Star and paint it white.
8.     When the star is dry, glue white buttons to the front.
9.     Glue the star over the navy blue corner.
10.       This is also a great idea for treat bags for the 4th of July also.  This one is
 showing, how you can use it for extra photos on a scrapbooking layout.
