Spring at The Kraft Journal

For this week's Spring/Anything Goes Challenge at The Kraft Journal, I decided to do something fun with a Lunch Bag Kraft No. 10 Open End Policy Envelope.  I used some cardstock and patterned papers to make a large flag, and to add a Grungy Prim Shipping Tag #2 (the smaller of the two sizes carried at the Kraft Outlet).  This can be used for journaling, or just for decoration.  Next, I added some fun flowers, sequins, wide lace, and a bow made from Rose Beige Hand-Stained Bias Tape and Winter White Bias Tape.  I also tucked a small scrap of Vintage Sheet Music under the Small Grungy Prim Shipping Tag. 
These Lunch Bag Kraft No. 10 Open End Policy Envelopes are AWESOME for implementing into a scrapbook page because you can tuck A LOT inside of them.  They can also be used to create a mini album.  They're an item that may get overlooked, but they're really a lot of fun.  Oh, and don't forget that they cost ONLY $0.35 each!!!
The vintage image is a sticker from my stash.  I couldn't honestly tell you where I got, or how long I've had it.  Unfortunately, there's a bit too much of that in my craft room; so I've really been trying to use some of it.  I also thought I'd mention my new watermarks.  I got this watermark (seen in my photos above) made several different ways for each of the Design Teams I'm on currently.  I highly recommend the gal who made them for me.  Her name is Nikki Adshead, and you can find her blog here:  Watermarks by Nikki.
Have a blessed week, and thanks so much for stopping by.
