Hello, Crafty Peeps!   
As I have said in the past, I love using brown lunch bags to make cards and tag holders.  This past week I decided to return to that old favorite to create my DT projects.  
I was also inspired by the coming of Passover and the gentle stirring of Spring.
This was a fun, quick, and easy project that utilizes a small bag.  
I did not do a step out tutorial for this project but probably will photograph the next one.
Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to seeing your project in the challenge.
I love the ease of creating pockets with the brown paper bags!  The secret is in the folding!
To save on crafting costs, I keep all the cardboard backing from embellishments and use those for my tags.  These two tags were create using the carding from a Graphic 45 Staples purchase and  from some Bo Bunny Brads.

Hint: Once your brown bag is folded, run it through your Big Shot.  This will smooth out any wrinkles in the bag and reinforce your folds.

Supplies Used:
Papers:  My Mind's Eye - Miss Caroline - Howdy Doody
Inks:  Broken China, Vintage Photo, Spun Sugar and Scattered Straw Distress Inks
