Graphic 45 - Little Darlings 6x6 Paperbag Mini

Hello Everyone,
Today's post is to feature a 6x6 paper bag mini that I made for a swap. This was the first time that I had ever done paper bag mini. Beforehand I had to do some research. And with the help of my scrapping friend Jenny at http://www.addictedtopaper.blogspot.com/ and some You Tube videos this is what transpired. However the cover is one complete piece of chipboard wrap in denim material.
Hope my swap partner likes it and and certainly all my crafty friends. TFL

This is the backside I had to make as pretty as the front

This is the side view so that you could see the closure charm that also can be detached from the mini binder clips to wear as a bracelet

    I love Gina in the scraproom, and that video needs to be spelled out for beginners but also for people who think they might wanna get over on others...how sad to have a swap fall through. I have had it happen more than once and it sucks!!! It makes people leery and I don't wanna be like that, but after you invest your time, money and supplies to get burned it makes ya sour!! know what I mean?!@?!
    Hope to chat with ya soon!!
