The one with the paper bag....

Hi Friends!

I made this fun birthday card for my daughter to give to her good friend recently.  I have been enchanted with paper bag albums lately, and when I needed to make a quick card, it occured to me to give the idea a test run.  So here is what I ended up with:

I folded a white 2 lb paper sack from the party store in half and started adding paper to dress it up.  The candle tag is from My Scrap Chick. 
The inside of the card includes a pocket on the left side for a gift card.  The pocket is made by taping down the sides of the bottom flap of the bag.  I had fun using my embossing folders to add texture. 
There is another pocket formed by the top opening of the bag. ( I taped down the inner sections, so that there would be just one flat pocket.)  A perfect place for a tag!

Here is the tag.
This is a very quick and easy clean and simple card to make.
You will definitely be seeing a paper bag album posted here in the near future! 
Have a terrific today!
