...born to shop! It's Black Friday, so today's project is all about the shopping! This trio of blinged-out grandmas is out for a good time together while searching for some great bargains!
This shopping bag is a recycled bag from the bookstore where my son works. I covered the logo with some cute designer papers in holiday colors, paper-piecing the focal image with scraps from the same paper pad. The edges of the green panel are bordered with sticky jewel bling strips. My favorite, most-oft-used washi tape set, Eyelet Outlet's 5-roll skinny washi tape set, plays along nicely with some music washi and planner washi for a fun calendar theme that harmonizes with the designer paper. The big layered paper flower mimics the flowers in their hats, which were given single jewel accents cut from the sticky back bling strips. Yep, these are gaudy grandmas! The more bling, the better! ;)
The tag accenting the top of the bag features more skinny washi tape, a sticky-back bling heart and a tiny calendar of December.
Whether you choose to shop out in the frenzy or from the comfort of your easy chair, I hope you find what you're looking for at a price you love! Enjoy your first weekend of the holiday season!
