Flower Filled Altered Tote Bags with Grace

Grace is back with another brilliant paper crafting project! She created box card Tote Bags for Spring occasions using Henry’s Build-A-Sentiment: Spring. She filled the altered Tote Bags with flowers including our new Lovely Lily of the Valley.

Grace created a larger Tote Bag by altering the Shadow Box Card as the base before adding the tote bag pieces to each side. See the directions below for the easy alterations. She used Rainbow Ever After in Rapunzel, Alice and Jack to match the pastel colors of the flower bouquets!

Then Grace personalized each box with a greeting from Henry’s Build-A-Sentiment: Spring! She white embossed the sentiment on a vellum Extra Sentiment Banner, then she layered it on a label from Platform Pop-Up Picket Fence Wrap Around.

Crafting the Flowers

Here’s a great breakdown of how Grace assembled each of the flowers. The ink colors named are Lawn Fawn inks that are in the supply list below. To make the daisy flower she combined Reveal Wheel Circle Add-On Frames: Flower and Sun with a stem and leaf from Darling Daffodils.

Creating the altered box

Grace altered the Shadow Box Card by cutting 1/2″ off the top of each piece. And she added the hillside inserts higher in box, more toward the middle. You will use the inserts for attaching the flowers. She also cut off the handle panel of the Tote Bag, then trimmed 1/8″ off each side. She finished the altered box by attaching the panels to front and back of the Shadow Box.

How pretty are these boxes filled with Spring flowers? They are so perfect for happy Spring celebrations! Or make up a bunch of them and decorate your home with flowers that won’t fade!

Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful and creative project, Grace!
