PTI Dec Blog Hop - Tied Up with String

Happy day after Christmas everyone - are you out shopping all the sales?? -  I'm back at work for a couple of days and then off for New Year's week - whoo hoo!!

Today I'm participating in the Papertrey Ink December Blog Hop  The challenge is "Tied up With String"
For my project - I decorated a white 6" x 8" mesh net bag from Pouch Mart with a tag and twine for a new home gift.
I used two dies - Tag Sale #5 and the house die from Boards and Beams - embossing the house stamp from Boards and Beams in white on kraft card stock.  I tied the tag onto the bag by simply looping the twine through the holes in the mesh.
That gave me the idea to add a little texture to the plain white net bag by tying twine knots randomly on the front of the bag.
Since the bag is see-through - the lovely gold and silver scented candle I placed inside is shown off quite nicely!

If you'd like to be inspired by all kinds of ways to use string - check out the PTI blog hop here where everyone is linking up their projects!
