Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential #4

Pre-schedule post!
Welcome to our 4th Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential Challenge! This week our uber talented leader Vicki challenged us to make a treat holder/container! How fun is that! So I looked for something fun to make and found this little bag made from an envelope. I used a cream colored A2.

Isn't this a sweet little pumpkin, it was one of the FREEbie images from Robin @ Robin 's Artful Musings! Very generous....thank you Robin!!!! I just love pumpkins....they make me smile....even the ones without faces! lol This is a project anyone can make...no special supplies needed! The envelope bag is simply cut, scored and decorated! Checkout the super easy tutorial HERE!


Check out the magnificent projects from the other Spotlight Divas...each has made a different bag/box with tutorial/links on their blogs...
I am humbled by the talent of these ladies...and thrilled to be part of their family! :)
