Greetings from the 'Bag Lady'

Greetings!
I am the lucky hostess this week for the Repeat Impressions Designer Choice Challenge.
My challenge to the Rockstars, (and you, should you decide to accept it), 
is to create a bag and/or tag project.

Here is my project:

Tag and bag, complete with crooked ribbon (this was fixed, but not until after the photos were taken.  Oops!  I used the Repeat Impressions 'Peaceful Observation' #2001, and 'Meowy Christmas' #2211. Colored with Copics markers. Ribbon and Twine on tag are from Flourishe's, and the ribbon strip on the bag is from Hobby Lobby.

Tag

Back view, showing magnets.  I just cut up a magnetic business card for my magnets.

I made my tag to adhere on the bag with magnets.  After the gift is opened, the tag can hang on the fridge door, or file cabinet for a few days.

Head over to the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built, to check out the inspiration of my fellow Rockstars!  I know they have some fabulous projects to share!

Then, grab your stamps and link up YOUR creation to Mr. Linky - we'd love to see what your take on this challenge looks like!

Have a good week,
Patti J.
