I used Basic Grey 6x6 paper, chipboard alphabet, Spellbinders scalloped circles (I used a Sizzix die cut tool), Color Box ink and distressing tool, Glue Glider Pro adhesive and embellishments. Most supplies can be found on my website Scrapbook Store at Your Door.
Start with a basic lunch sack and fold in half. Your bag opening should be the back of the card. Use a little adhesive to tape the edges that would open if you were using this as a lunch sack. You will place a little treat of your choice in this opening once your card is finished.
I used Spellbinders Scalloped Circles with my Big Shot Sizzix on my card, but you can use any die cut machine or paper punch to create similar looks.
The larger scalloped circle (patterned paper) is adhered flat on top of the 5x5 patterned paper. The smaller (solid colored) scalloped circle is raised up with pop dots. I also placed two small Basic Grey brads on the sides of the top scallop. I used a paper piercer to create tiny holes around the top scallop. Distressing with ink adds to the ruggedness of this manly card, so I used the Color Box distressing tool with a Dark Brown ink. Distress with ink on every layer of paper to achieve a finished look.
I used Basic Grey Archaic 6x6 paper pad for this card. I cut my sheets to 5x5 in size to fit the paper bag. Using quality paper packs like Basic Grey, allows for perfect coordinating of pattern paper's. All paper's in these packs work beautifully together, and can be mixed and matched for fun combinations in cards.
Save the scraps left over from cutting the 6x6 paper to 5x5. As shown in the picture above these scraps can make a perfect embellishment. This is the inside view of the paper bag card. Both sheets of paper came from the Archaic paper pack and were cut to a 5x5 size. I will stamp Happy Father's Day in the inside, but if you do not have stamps print this out on your computer. I love printing on Vellum and using a paper punch to punch out my sentiment.
I tied cord around the card a few times as an embellishment in place of more girly ribbon.
When completed, slip a pair of Baseball Tickets, a gift card, cash or Daddy's favorite candy in this pouch. Make Dad really smile and make coupon's good for chores he normally is responsible for. Mowing the lawn is a big one at our house (:
