Butterfly Paper Bag

Hiya! I hope everybody is doing well.  I managed to finish a paper bag decorated with  Tilda and butterflies.  This is Tilda with Uggs which is part of Australian Special that was released recently. 

For those of you not familiar with Ugg shoes, they are the most comfy shoes for cold weather. They are made in Australia. Unfortunately I don't own a women's Uggs. But  I have  couple of Kid's size 2 Uggs and I love em!

Now back to  my paper bag.  I colored Tilda with Copics. and the beautiful flowers are from
 Wild Orchid Crafts. I distressed the paper edges with a distressing tool, stained them, then stitched the edges with my sewing machine.

 Here's a closer look at Tilda!

Supplies used:
Tim Holtz On the Edge Butterflies
Spellbinders Ovals
