The Artfull Bag Challange 2011


January's Theme: "Playing With Paper"

Crafted bags or purses from paper. Any paper; be it scrapbook, book, magazine, wall paper, cardstock, etc... And embelish the creation however you'd like!
Made out of wall paper, I chose my "fabric (background)" and proceeded to embelish it with a zipper, larger handle, extra flap, silver buckles and a pocket. This bag would be a large "carpet bag."

Love your carpet bag theme. Using wallpaper is a brilliant idea and the zipper looks perfect on it. Thankyou for your comment on my bag. Can't wait to see what you come up with next month.

Wonderful embellishments on your bag. Looks so real with the zipper and buckles on it.

Oh my gosh, I love this - I think the carpet bag idea is fantastic! I also have to admit that when you look at this it is hard to realize it's paper and NOT fabric! Lovely!
