Butterfly Basics Paper Bags

The good news is the Butterfly Basics Bundle Framelits are on their way here and will soon be available for order.  They should arrive at Stampin' Up! on the 8th of April.  The bad news...not today. :(  But I have something for you to look at today so you can get excited to order them when they arrive!
I folded a paper lunch bag up and sewed it with my handy dandy $99 sewing machine I bought just for paper bag projects and really, really hate.  Well the machine is probably fine, it's the operator who is the problem. 

I added a trim strip of Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper to the bottom pocket to make it stand out.  The tags are 2" x 3" pieces of Whisper White cardstock and cut with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.  The notecard is the size of the inside in the top pocket.  I'd give you measurements, but it depends on how deep you make your first pocket.  The butterfly is cut with Cardstock Vellum and the smaller one is stamped with Perfect Plum ink.

So cute and fun to give, plus they fit in a regular envelope!  Yay!

Spring Break has come and gone.  Benjamin was home for just 4 short days  - but it was nice to have them both on Spring Break at the same time.  Did I mention that Ben made the Dean's List first semester at UC Berkeley?  Yep, we're so proud of him!!
