for you coffee bag




Happy Friday crafty friends!  So the amazing crew over at Coffee Lovers are hosting a sping bloghop-- it's spring here, but I know that it's not quite spring in other parts of the world...  Well today is also a new Tag You're It Challenge and I made a card, but I wanted to combine both-- coffee and the challenge together.... so hello decorated coffee bag.  My local coffee roasters (and friends) at Caroline's Coffee have these great kraft bags at the local supermarket and I always think of them as a blank canvas just waiting for something fun, I've decorated quite a few bags over the years.  I also bought myself the new PTI Tag Sale Die and while I get that it's suppose to be a luggage tag, I think it'll work for other crafty projects too.  I used Lawn Fawn, Waltzingmouse Stamps and an accent Verve stamp on the project and used two May Arts ribbon.  Craftying tip of the day-- empty the coffee beans from the bag BEFORE you stamp (you should see the back, laughing... sometimes being lazy does not work in your favor).  Can't wait to see more coffee creations and I'd love for some of you to join us at Tag You're It Challenge.

Great tag and gift! When I saw your post title..."for you coffee bag"...I thought it might be a funny project calling some old lady (like me!) a coffee bag. It would be quite appropriate! Ha.
