To Box or To Bag

   I have the biggest dilemma today.  Just Add Ink are running my type of challenge today, a bag or box (so basically 3D).  I have just started to get myself organised for the week and try and post a little more (so I have a tutorial or two as well) and when I saw this challenge I couldn't decide which one to use.  Talk about giving me a headache!
  So I have decided to put in this briefcase that I have been dying to case from Jackie Topa.  I seem to have had it for ages and have not had the time to make it.  Now I did use retired dsp (just warning you, but it is my favourite set from 2 years ago and I hate using it.  I don't think I have seen another pack this good.  So very reluctant to use it unless I have to!!!!!!) so please don't hold it against me but this paper is just so appropriate.
Isnt' this just so cute.  Mine is a plain one, as I am trying to keep in mind the 'male'.

And don't you just love this dsp!!  So this is the inside which I love as well and I was thinking of putting a chocolate bar in the middle, tied with ribbon.  Still mannish!
Just let me know if you would like the instructions or they are on Jackie Topa's site.  She is also one of my favourite blog artists, lots of punching!!!!!!
Besides my favourite dsp (which you may see rarely), old olive and whisper white card
Ink:  Old olive
Acc:  Designer buttons, twine
Tools:  11/8" punch, 1"punch.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day....


  1. I love it and very nice for a male.

  2. Love it! Perfectly masculine too...or not, that's the beauty about this little number I guess. Loving your buttons!

  3. I love that paper too Theresa and still have some in my stash. Hope SU brings out something similar next catalogue!
    Love your suitcase and thanks for playing along with us at JAI
