Dressing up the Jute Bags!

Hi friends!   It's the start of the weekend - Yippee!!  and double Yippee for me because I'm on vacation for a week!  I'm just going to be at home as DH doesn't have the week off -  but the weather is supposed to be perfect summer weather - so I'll be in the yard gardening, sunning a little (with the sunscreen on, of course!), going to a small circus with my sister, my niece and grand nephew and there will be some stampin' goin' on I'm sure!

Today I have a fun project to share with you that is posted over on the Pouch Mart Blog.  I'd SO appreciate it if you'd check it out and maybe leave a comment?!  (the comment button is at the TOP of the post)

So here they are -  my dressed up Jute Bags!   How'd I dress them up???  by spray painting them with Silver Spray Paint!  I got the idea from good ole' Martha Stewart.
 I made a pom pom flower out of pink raffia and pinned it to the bag with the sentiment tag.


All my stamps are from Waltzingmouse.  All supplies are listed below.

You'll find all the details and more pics on how I made these over at the Pouch Mart Blog.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
