Sweet On You!

Hello everyone and welcome to Monday, Brianna here from Happy Scrapper! If you didn't already know, this month the twine-istas will be sharing 3D Valentine projects with you all. I am going to kick off my first post for this month, by sharing a bag I altered.  

I decided to paper pierce my bag and do a scalloped crochet edge on it using my absolute favorite twine, Strawberry Cupcake. I didn't follow a pattern, I just SC down the bag, then turned, did four DC in first SC, SS in next SC, skip stitch and repeat.
SC: Single Crochet
DC: Double Crochet
SS: Slip Stitch

I put a Spellbinders die, cut side up, inside my bag and ran through my eBosser (thanks Dad & Mom, yes my dad does read my blogpost) :) to cut out the circle. I than placed the same circular die inside a larger scallop die by spellbinders to cut out the glittery circular frame. I put a piece of clear acetate on the inside of bag & adhered it down, so the candies wont fall out. The bag was filled with chocolates, but before pictures, my peanut and I got hungry :)

Items used from store:
50 Small Brown Kraft Bags - PRINTABLE BAGS - Candy Buffet Bags

Small Gift Tags - White

Sequins Mixed - Loose sequins mixed shapes and sizes - Sample size bag.

All my stamps used on my bag are by Peachy Keen Stamps.

Thank you all for stopping by and taking a peek at my altered gift bag, also be sure to head over to yesterdays post and check out our Simply White blog hop, if you haven't already, this new twine is just perfect and so are all the creations made with it!!

Wow, is this fantastic! I so wish I could crochet! My left-handedness got in the way when right handed people tried to teach me. I love this bag!

Super job on the crochet edge and directions for your altered bag. I like the tag and cut out. It would be hard not to eat the chocolates.

That is just special. I crocheted on tablecloth and such but never tried on paper edge. Thanks for the idea.
