Hello friends! There is a Maya Road & Xyron Design Team Swap all week long. Do drop by the Maya Road blog to leave a comment for your chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the store!
My project is an upcycled paper bag. Here is a short tutorial.
I was generously sent the new Creative Station Lite by Xyron [To date, one of the most generous manufacturers to design for ever. I remember fitting myself in one of those boxes of goodies they sent...that was how big the box was...*winks*] which is now my fave desktop companion. :)
I started with a sturdy paper bag from YSL (I love the highlighter which conceals my dark eye circles so that no one thinks a panda is out on the loose...*LOL*), Prima patterned paper and some remnant lace. Once I cut the paper and lace to size, I ran them through the Xyron Creative Station Lite for an even layer of adhesive and a lot less mess.
I added a little more textural interest with these new pearl bits from Maya Road.
They are lightweight with a pearlized sheen. You know I'm in love with these right? ;)
And who wants plain handles when you can have plaited ones right?
I finished off with the Shimmering Pointed Petal Flower in Emo Black as my focal point for a really classy-looking gift bag.
What do you think?
