Altered Glassine Bag with Altered Key Closure

Greetings blogging friends!  Did I ever mention how much I love to alter glassine bags.  I just do.  I love the feel and sound and absolute versatility of them.  I have a bunch of different sizes in my cache'.  So fun.  So today is another project from the swap I did over at My Scrap Room.  This matches the Altered Matchbox and Mini Album I did for it.  For this project I used some things that were rejects from other projects.  The lace border was one of them.  I used the extra piece from the border to accent the tag.  A paper doily was glued to the top of the bag and I used an altered key to keep the bag closed.  I just love how the weight of the key keeps the bag closed perfectly.  I am definitely going to keep it in mind to do it again because I love it so much.  Inside this bag I included a couple of 7 Gypsies stamps.  Thanks for stopping by today.  I appreciate it.  Will see you soon with more from this swap.

Carol, how do you manage to professionally and artistically arrange so many beautiful layers on something so tiny? GORGEOUS of course. Love the tiny details on your bottom border die cut, and the layers on the "altered key" closure. Everything is so pretty about this feminine, vintage envelope. Just lovely. Will you share what Cindy said when she receives your package? She will be so happy. Even happier than I feel just visiting your blog home. love, de
