A Man Bag!

Hello everyone – Christine here today to share with you a gift bag for the man in your life.  I adore all thinks girlie and pretty but occasionally we have to put together something a little more masculine, today’s project is a quick and easy altered lunch bag.

What makes this project so speedy is the new E-Z Runner® Refillable Dispensers.  I’ve chosen to use the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable – the dispenser fits smoothly into my hand, I’m able to dispense as little or as much as I need and I know when it runs out I can just open it up and pop in a new refill.  No winding of tape, it just slots inside.

The papers I have selected are Simple Stories – Awesome, the colours are earthy and masculine, suited to my man bag!  Using the same adhesive I can attach some web-like ribbon.  I’ve also added some Photo Corners Kraft.  I attach this whole panel to the front of the lunch bag.

I selected a Bingo Card from the Awesome collection, distressed and inked the edges.  Placing Crafty Foam Tape strips to the reverse adds dimension.

Using more of the patterned paper I cut/embossed Spellbinders Classic Heart and Stars Five to create embellishments.  Affixing 3D Foam Squares – White to the reverse.

The finished bag.

The photo corners tone so well with the overall finish.

And, in the absence of anything girlie you cannot go wrong with hearts and stars!

Thank you for stopping by today.
