Shabby Chic Paper Bag Pocket Easter Card

Shabby Chic Paper Bag Pocket Easter Card

Hello, Friends!  Today I’ve transformed a lowly brown paper lunch bag into a showy shabby chic paper bag Pocket Easter Card.  I haven’t done anything like this in quite a while, but I kind of had a hankering to make a project with lots of pockets and tags…and this is where I wound up!

Oh, but I had so much fun making this triple decker pocket card from an old brown paper bag! To make the base, I simply folded a standard brown lunch bag, lined it with darling Eastertime papers from Authentique, then adorned it with Yellow Chevron Striped Twill Ribbon , Hot Pink Quatrefoil Satin, Burlap String, and WOC flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Pink and yellow is such a fun, fresh color combo for Springtime!  Would you like to see what’s in the pockets?  I thought so!

The bottom pocket is filled with treats for the tummy and treats for the eyes!  Each 3″ x 4″ string tie envelope is dressed up in its Easter best. The sweet little tag is made with a sticker from the paper collection.  Snippets of ribbon, , flowers, and burlap string are Easter Bunny approved!

Tags and pockets go together like the Easter Bunny and Jelly Beans!  I created a tall tag for the middle pocket, then had dressing it up with ribbons, flowers stickers and charms.

The top pocket holds a decorated 4″ x 6″ string tie envelope.  Because it’s Easter, you have to have chocolate, so I’ve tucked a bag of M&M’s inside this pretty little packet.

    What a great idea, Kathy. It’s like an alternate Easter basket! Tags are so much fun to make-love yours–and then it’s simply a matter of tucking them into the decorated bag! What an adaptable idea. I see a future of these tags and bags for all sorts of occasions. No wonder you enjoy to making them. tfs
