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!
I’ve tucked some tasty almonds and the dearest miniature card into the string tie envelopes.

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.
Here’s a peek at the paper bag pocket with everything removed. I think this is a really fun alternative to an Easter Basket. What do you think?
