Who loves a good canvas bag? Who loves a good canvas bag filled with TREATS?.. Uh. ME! I just had to do a little feature with a small side giveaway this week showing you these cool canvas bags from State Line Bag co! They offer a variety of sizes.. which is great! We are women (and maybe a few men are here) and we like variety, right? State Line Bags has canvas bags ranging in sizes from 2.75″ x 4″ to 12″ x 16″. These are perfect for gift giving! Think holiday Christmas gifts especially! If you have 14 and 1/2 thumbs like me, you probably hate wrapping odd shaped stuff. With these, you can easily stamp on a bag, add a tag, and throw it at the person it’s for. (OK.. throwing might be a bit mean.. but I am feelin’ feisty right now.. so ya’ll better run for cover.. I’m throwing canvas bags around! *whoosh* <—- That was a canvas bag full of chocolate being thrown by your head. I warned you!)
So, to show you the awesomeness of these bags I brought along my craftalicious friend, Thienly from Mod Paperie. (I have been meaning to tell her to call herself ‘Vintage’ Paperie instead.. I think it fits better… lol. Am I right? Of course I am.. And yes, you can hire me for blog naming services. You can pay me in coffee. Venti’s only)
So, let’s get started. Settle yourself down now. I am sure you’re squirming around in your seat because you are just DYING to see some canvas deliciousness.
Don’t those ruffles look adorable? Especially with that frayed edge and black zig-zag stitching! I cut off the drawstring, added black eyelets and some Trendy Twine (Who I will be featuring tomorrow with a GREAT giveaway and awesome guest designers!) to make my bag a little more unique! Then I stamped all over my bag with some fun My Thoughts Exactly stamps; ‘Fright Night Friends’, which you can possibly WIN (see details below). I stamped onto another canvas bag for the ghost, candy corn, and bat and then cut them out and adhered them onto my bag! Thought that was pretty fun looking.
Anyhow, here’s Thienly’s super cute version of the State Line canvas bags. I love her added touches of burlap behind the stamped pieces.
Thienly said, “I knew when I saw these canvas bags, I HAD to add some burlap to it. These go together so well, and I’ve been loving the way it looks together. Of course, I had to share my love for Unity Stamp Company – their stamps are perfect for projects like this. Instead of the string that come with the bag, I replaced it with black twine to add to the Halloween feel”
What a perfect little treat bag! Thank you so much, Thienly, for joining me today! Thienly is also having a giveaway for some of these bags on HER blog! Head on over and leave her some love and enter for a chance to win some! She’s giving away 25 of them! You’ll be set! She’s also got a facebook page.. stop by and say hello! She’s got some serious talent! Seriously. Serrrrriously. (said in a faux drunken slur). You’ll want to stalk her… and smell her hair.
LOL! Gosh.. I am so weird. I was just ‘whining’ to Thienly about how long blog posts take and I am sooo tired.. well duh. They take so long because I ramble on about throwing canvas bags at people and being a creepy hair smelling stalker. Jeez. Someone needs a therapist.
