Altered Bag

I found this cute canvas linen drawstring bag in the dollar spot at Target. I loved it so much that I grabbed all they had knowing I could alter them throughout the year. This design was super easy to make and is perfect to fill with Easter candy.

Supplies Used: Easter Elements Tim Holtz/Sizzix Die, Burlap, Trim, Seam Binding, Fabri Tac, Pearl Beads, Silver Blank Disk, Jump Rings, Head Pin

Tools Needed: Die Cutting Machine, Scissors, Bench Block, Brass Hammer, Long Nose Pliers, Metal Stamps

  • Using the Easter Elements die and burlap, die cut the bunny.
  • Using Fabri Tac attach the bunny to the front of the bag
