A "Charming" Paper Bag

LESSology Challenge... #22
(Webster's dictionary,  "Charming" is delightful and pleasing.) 

My goal was to re-use the white paper bag and make it into something  "CHARMING" without spending any money and still create something beautiful.  I only used what I had in my stash...
I wanted to create a scene where we are looking out a window at a little girl playing with her puppy.  I would say this turned out very delightful, pleasing, and charming. 
This project was made from a white paper deli bag.  I used Bo Bunny Paper and Flowers.  Glossy accents to bring out the beads and puppies face and La Peti flowers and ribbon from The Paper Studio..  Old lace from a wedding dress.  A poem about "Friendship" from Henri  Nouwen   .  and a beautiful corsage laced flower from a friend.

This is the front of this re-purposed bag.

  This is the back of the bag.

This is a close up of the front of the bag.

Here is a detailed ..  : D

Charms sewn in with trim.

A flower charm attached to stick pin and a
lock and key charm on the edge of the flap.

  1. Such a lovely creation Carol. So pretty with the lace and blooms.

    Just wondering where the charms are? The LESSology challenge is to incorporate charms.

    1. I have added two pictures showing charms at the top on the front.. and hanging from the stick pin is a flower charm.. and a lock and key just below the lace on the back. : D thanks.. cj
