Paper Bag Flowers

 This is the set up I use when I use spray inks for my projects.  I have a paper grocery sack, I cut out one side, and lay that piece in the bottom for reinforcement.  I lay my stuff in the bottom, and spray without worry that it will get all over other things.  I was going to change out the bottom layer because I didn't want the red inks to bleed on the project I was working on, then an idea hit me.
 Why waste this beautiful paper with layers of lovely sprays and glittery goodness?
 I grabbed my punches and punched out some shapes...
...shaped them and used buttons and bling and TAA DAA!!!  I got some lovely flowers and embellishments for future projects and recycled some stuff at the same time!  I used some of these on my policy envelope album.
Have a crafty day!

Great idea both the way you cut the bag so you wouldn't make a mess and then the flowers that you made from the bag.
