Daily Window Bag "The Challenge"


Time for another challenge, this one is a little different though. Design anything 3D style that
will fit into the pocket of this bag. The measurements of this pocket is 8" tall x 5 1/4" wide. The best part about this challenge is whomever comes up with the most unique creation will win a brand new Urban Tote Bag just like the ones here.

I can not say enough wonderful things about our sponsor this month, Daily Window Products. Both of my boys own their backpack, which they designed a page of their own to put in the pocket. I have their "Very Necessary Tote" which I use as a purse and keep a Mini Catalog in for advertising. I also have the Urban Sport tote bag, which I am using for my portable 8X8 scrapbook pages.

What is a portable scrapbook page you ask, well here is my sample. It is a scrapbook page measuring 8"x8" when flat and when folded up is 8"x 5 1/4"ish. Here is how you do it, take a piece of 8"x8" paper score at 5" and again at 6 1/2". All I did was accordion fold the score lines so I could move the side over, so I have a decorative side and my photo showing. When I flatten my page I can pull my journaling out from behind my photo (which I made into a pocket) and voila a layout that I can put flat into my scrapbook. Super easy!!

Carrie used a much loved craft item for her project - chipboard. These are the chipboard pieces from the
S
U catalogue that she has had for quite some time now and has finally pulled them out of her craft cupboard and has decided to use them for this challenge. Nice thing is they totally fit the pocket of her Urban Sport Tote bag. At first thought, she thought this would make a great gift for a new mom to tote around all the necessities that come with a new baby. And, once you're done with this little gem in the pocket, add another piece to the back and punch holes in the top with your crop-a-dile and you've got a great desktop picture for any office or on a shelf adorning a little ones room at home.

We can't wait to see what you will create! You have until next Tuesday night at 9PM MAT (-7GST) to leave a comment here with a link to your creation.

Sorry about removing the previous post, it had a wrong link in it. Here is the correct link to my idea for the window-bag:
