Kraft Paper Sack ~ Fathers Day

Howdy Scrappers! Welcome to my blog. Today's project features a Kraft Paper Sack Tutorial by my good friend Karen. You can visit her tutorial by clicking HERE.

Be sure to leave her some LOVE when you make your visit and tell her Gail sent you. :)  P.S.  I am trying to rack up some points with her so that when she writes her Tutorial Book I get a piece of the rock! Just kidding - but she does lovely tutorials so be sure to hop on over and get a closer look at this one! Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!

This tutorial is truly easy - it took me 15 minutes to make this gift card (as long as you have the supplies on hand) ~ No wonder Karen was selected as a designer for The Kraft Journal Challenges~she does lovely work, don't ya think?

Why not visit the The Kraft Journal Challenge today and enter your two creations? This is a fun challenge!

Enjoy your week and please stop by again!
God Bless you today & Always
