Throwback Thursday - Challenge

This was a challenge posted on My Creative Time with Emma. The challenge was to use the colors brown, blue and red in an "out of the box" creative way. Trying to kill two birds with one stone, I thought I could make a gift bag and still make something specifically for this contest.

We have the best babysitter in the whole world who is going to our church youth camp next week. So I thought I'd make a little treat bag and put some fun goodies inside of it; candy being the main ingredient, of course!

This is what I used to make the bag:
Cricut cartridges: Tags, Bags, Boxes & More; Give a Hoot

DCWV Paper - The Guy stack

hemp twine

Ink: teal (MS) and Distressed Ink by Ranger (I think it is frayed burlap)?

white gel pen, black gel pen

Bear in Trash Can (Give a Hoot) cut at 3"

Apple (Give a Hoot) cut at 1 1/2"

Shopping Bag (TBBM) cut at 5 3/4" (I did "fit to page" on a 12x12 piece of cardstock)

Thanks for looking!
