DIY - Paper Bag from Newspaper

I saw this on Pinterest and decided to make my own.  I used the dimensions as specified in the instructions for the smaller bag.  I then added eyelets to hold the handle and a snowflake punch detail on both sides.  

Here is a larger bag that I made using a half sheet of newspaper, triple ply, and I added grommets to hold the ribbon.  

In retrospect I should have stamped the newspaper before assembling the bag to give it some extra style and interest.  Overall I think it's a cute idea but handling newspaper can be messy and I'm not sure it would hold up to anything heavy.  Here are the instructions.

Christmas Card Preview

This year's card won't have any moving parts or do any tricks...just clean and simple.  Quite a departure from previous years.  I decided to stay with non traditional colors but I haven't quite figured out the final design.

Christmas Twist

This month's card swap challenge was to make a holiday card using colors typically not associated with the holidays (i.e., no reds or greens).  Easier said than done.
