Fall Squirrel Project

Hi friends! It's Lisa E. and it's my turn in the DeNami design team rotation to share an extra project with you. I thought I would mix it up a bit this time and share something other than a card. How about a fun fall goodie bag!
It's that time of year again when the squirrels are scampering about gathering their winter stash! So what set could be more appropriate than the {Nuts About You} petit four! This project starts with a simple flat brown paper sack. I folded the bottom portion up and closed the two dies with Scor Tape, leaving the top open. Next I added some DP to the front of the bag. A postage die cut was stamped with the scallop square, the squirrel and the heart shaped acorns (from the Nuts About You set). These were all colored with markers. I wrapped the die cut with twine then added it to the bag with foam tape. Two more acorns were stamped and colored on the DP. 
Using the sentiment and another small postage die cut, I made a little tag for the goodies! It's attached with twine and a chunky espresso boutique button.
Add them to the pouch and you're good to go! See the little polka dot strip on the bag? There is another pocket here. Perfect for slipping in a handwritten note or small matching card!
Designer's Tip: Add a bit of chalk shading to the outer edges of your die cut. This adds a bit of subtle zip to the panel! I chose a soft blue here to pick up the thin blue line in the DP. 

Thanks so much for joining us today!

AHHH I can't stand how cute and clever this is Lisa! Love that postage stamp cut-out and the pretty edged stamp behind the squirrel.
