I keep coming back to this particular bag from the Art Philosophy cartridge, and I don't know exactly what I'm trying to do with it yet but I feel like I'm getting closer. I have tried several different folds for the sides and this one seems to work best for smaller bags (this one was cut at 3" height so if you are careful you can cut 2 bags per 12x12" paper); the sides were 2" wide so I measured and marked the center with a dot along the top of the bag and just scored from each corner of the bottom of the bag to the center mark I made, then the front and back can come together and the handles lay flat against each other quite nicely. I like this size because it holds the 2.5x2.5" color swatches I make and give out to new customers and leaves just a little room for some bling, a business card, or folded note, etc.
I used Vanilla Cream for the bag, some scraps from Pemberley (front and back of the same page), and the tag was cut from Bamboo and stamped with Outdoor Denim using a stamp from the Art Philosophy collection.

I would love to hear from others about their favorite feature of Studio J and if you haven't tried it yet (or if you have and you can't get enough) check out my special offer under the "current promotions" tab as well as info on a special CTMH paper pack for National Scrapbooking Month and the Stamp of the Month "Friendship Bouquet."
