Hello friends. Today I have what is called a bag tag made with the adorable Vintage Lamp and Dress Form Mini Dies from CottageCutz. What is a bag tag? It is a cute little paper bag that has been altered to hold a sweet tag. It's almost like a card and envelope, but it's a bag with a tag and they are super fun to make. This was inspired by ILuvVintageScrap-Ms Juliana on YouTube. Her's are gorgeous!
I went with a Shabby Chic theme. I used a 3-1/2" x 6-3/4" White Paper bag that I had in my stash from Michael's. I got some regular paper bags out (lunch bags) and used them for the background. I don't have any precise measurements because I just played with my stuff and did what looked good to me.

Absolutely amazing! I never used to like shabby chic, then overnight it seems, I was enchanted. I love the idea of a bag tag; I'll have to keep that in mind. There's lots of beautiful sweet bits, all working perfectly together. Love your paper bag flower and distressed background. Thanks so much for sharing.
