A Little Aloha

With the left overs from the Tropical Flair class, I decided to create a mini paper bag.

To see the size of the little bag, here it is compared to a 3x3 card and 3x3 post-it note holder.

I only used a 6 x 12 inch paper, scoring at 1 3/4" for the sides. Top folds down 1" and the bottom folds up 1 1/2". This is also where the teacher learns from her students. A special thank you to Byron for sharing the idea of braiding the raffia handles. He shared another bag he made entirely on his own after our class. I was so proud of him!!

And the full ensemble with 2 bags of Hawaii Islands Tea Hibiscus Honey Lemon green tea. A perfect little Aloha gift for tea at the Mission House Tea Parlor today!

That is just the best 'local' crafty thing I've seen in awhile. I love everything about it...the size, colors, design, and especially the braided handles. You get an A+!
