Papertrey September 2012 Blog Hop

 Hello! I am participating in the Papertrey September 2012 Blog Hop today. Nicole Heady challenged us to use the photos below for inspiration. Here is this month's challenge.

"This month it is all about wrapping it up.  Whether you are preparing early for the holidays or have an upcoming birthday or two, have fun experimenting with fabric & felt packaging ideas.  Use any of our Favor It dies with felt and a little hot glue gun action or stitching.  Use a pretty piece of fabric like you would wrapping paper and make a custom tag to coordinate with it.  Not into sewing or gluing?  Wrap a kitchen towel or cloth napkin
around a special bottle of wine and top it off with a hand-stamped gift label.  Or rip a strip of fabric to use in place of ribbon and finish it with a pretty handmade gift card.  There are so many different things to try, you will love experimenting to see what you can come up with!  We look forward to seeing your projects!"

This is the inspiration photo for the challenge.


I chose to "wrap" of my gift in a little zippered pouch I made.

Inside the pouch is a bunch of washi tape rolls for a papercrafting friend.

I figured they could use the pouch for something else after opening it. It's a great size for makeup! The pouch is from a pattern called "A Little Duffle Do It" by Karen West at www.lovethefabric.com. Here's a picture of the pattern front.
Hope you enjoyed it! Have fun checking out all the other wonderful projects!
