WOYWW #289

If your wondering why the mess is on display, head over to Julia's blog and read how you can play along. ( It's Whats on your workdesk Wednesday)

So last week, I did take a photo. (you can find it at the bottom of this post here) but, I did it with my cell phone and I was so tired when I came inside from (after a long day at work) I never took the photo out of the phone to upload it until it was way past wednesday... So, this week I decided to shoot these shots tuesday evening after work. At any rate a few days ago or maybe last week sometime. I had a thought to alter a lunch sack to make pockets to hold several gift cards. yes, that is coffee in that mug. (it's am somewhere) 

The first sack was run through my sewing machine. every sack since has used some score tape. ( its faster) 

These sacks get sprayed with (various colors) and I let them drip dry in the window sill on an old cd holder ( this thing works great for drying lots of tags at once too) and some are on some wooden spools. 

how they turned out, the dies are all Mama Elephant except the piece the sentiment ( hero arts) are on was diecut with a spellbinders labels trio die. Hope your all getting close to being ready for Christmas, and If I don't make it around next week. Have a blessed day! I did have some comments about seeing pretty packages and there is another blog post with a few shots found here. ( I am still wrapping and have not addressed and mailed my cards out yet)

What a clever project, I love how the sacks turned out! It is hard to get the energy to craft after work, so I hope you have some holiday time to enjoy your crafting. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #41

Hi Stacy,

LOVE your tag holders. A sign of a true crafter is using something for other than what its intended. If I see a c.d. rack (small one)at the thrift store I just may have to get it.

Thanks for stopping by already!
Peace, Kay (43)
