Our focus over the last couple of weeks at Emma's Paperie has been on Crate Paper products. I love, love, love Crate Paper anything, so it was lots of fun to come up with a little project to share using one of their collections.
I used paper strips cut from coordinating paper from the Snow Day collection and dressed up a simple Kraft coffee bag. I looped layers of these paper strips to form a big, cheery bow for the top of the package and then added in looped ribbon to make it even a bit fuller. Petaloo berries were added to create more dimension, and then a tag and fabric brad were used to finish off the package. Just by changing the colors or sentiment on the tag you could easily take this bag from a Happy Birthday package to a package for Christmas, a baby shower, wedding, etc.
The chipboard is also from the Snow Day and Restoration collections.

Before I go, have you heard about these cookies yet? Caramel Apple Cookies?
My little one has been sick the last couple of days, and so today we were having plenty of time snuggling on the couch and these little babies popped up on the news channel. Her eyes lit right up and now we just have to give them a try. I think they look heavenly.
