Blogger's Challenge, Week 4

This week's Blogger's Challenge was to create a gift bag or topper item -- anything that you might create to give a gift in.

I am not a make-a-bag type of person. Or at least I didn't think I was before I started this challenge.

I had fun making this, much to my own surprise! You gotta love stampin' - where else can you alter a plain white bag with so much dang satisfaction! Double-click on the picture if you would like to see more details.

The highlight for me was creating the Popcorn Scallop that I used to edge the bottom of the bag topper. I created a mini-tutorial below so that you can see how I did it. It may not be new to you, but it was to me!

Make sure to check out the other Blogger's Challenge Player's creations listed on the left side of the blog.
Happy Friday!

All stamps & paper, Stampin' Up!.
