The Kraft Journal #119 - Pop of Color for Teacher Appreciation Week!

{For The Ribbon Reel Challenge Post click here.}

For today's "Pop of Color"challenge at The Kraft Journal, I created a decorated bag for the upcoming Teacher Appreciate Week using Red as my Pop of Color.  I started with the Medium Kraft Paper Sack from The Kraft Outlet. I have to say, their bags just rock! They are nice and sturdy and made of awesome quality. Not like the ones you would find in the grocery store for lunches.

Using an apple stamp and Mini Swirl Flourish stamp from DeNami Designs, I randomly stamped the bag using Real Red ink from Stampin' UP!. 

For a softer feel, I added a white doily to the center of the decorated Medium Kraft Paper SackI further decorated by adding some red patterned papers from the good ol' scrap stash, a cute little paper-pieced apple inside a stamped scallop circle also from DeNami Designs. 

My final finishing touch included taking a length of Wraphia ribbon and wrapping it around the center tying in a bow and embellishing with some Red Baker's Twine and a button to complete the look.  

Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other gals.  We hope to see your Pop of Color creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

I am also joining in at All Sorts Challenge - Anything But a Card

Thanks for popping by!
