Cute Paper Bag Pocket

I'm here today to share a quick little project I made from a mini paper bag.  I will admit that I was very much inspired by other people on this - I'm not always the most creative on my own.  I do like how it turned out.
Dream Valley Challenges - Challenge #67 - Buttons - I used LOTS of buttons!
Mark's Finest Papers Challenge Blog - Wednesday's Simple Salutations - Thinking Of You - I used a Mark's Finest Papers tea cup stamp from their Oh Beans Stamp Set.

Hiding In My Craftroom Challenges - Super Scraps Saturday - I used scraps and LOVE using scraps.  Great challenge!
The Kraft Journal - Challenge #142 - Discover Something New - This was my first time trying the little gift bag pockets that I learned about in a past tutorial at The Kraft Journal.   I saw several other people try them, and they seemed easy enough and turned out really cute, so I thought I'd give it a try.  My "Kraft" item was the small kraft paper bag I used to create this.
Word Art Wednesdays - Challenge #102 - Anything Goes - You don't have to use the scripture on your project.  I like using their gorgeous word art files, but I didn't this time.
I made this little gift card pocket based on a tutorial that I had seen some time ago over at The Kraft Journal.  I used a cute little paper bag and covered it with patterned papers, stickers, flowers and buttons.  I love getting ideas like this because they're easy and cute.  Mine turned out really good for my first try, and I will definitely do this again because it was super easy and fun.
I will be back again soon with another blog post to show you another one of these cute little pockets.  If you give it a try, please let me know so that I can look at yours too.
