Monogram Mini Bucket (s)

Have you ever found something really cool on the web or on someone's blog and just had to recreate it?! Well, that's exactly what happened to me about 30 minutes ago! I was browsing one of my favorite stamper's blog and found *the* cutest paper bucket bag, sat down and recreated it in about 10 minutes and decided I'd share it with you here at Ink About Me. Before I show it to you, I must give credit where credit is due. Valerie Stangle/11valerie11 is one of my most favorite stampers, and here is her mini version of Diana Gibbs' Box In A Bag. Diana has a wonderful tutorial on her blog for the original bag that can be seen here. Thanks so much Diana, for your original version and inspiration, and thanks Val, for your mini version--both are cute, cute, cute, and as Val said *easy peasy* to recreate! One last note: Cambria Turnbow also has an excellent and as always, fun, tutorial on her blog that can be seen here! If you've never visited Val or Cami's blogs, you must do so!

*ETA: I decided to make *one* more with a transparency sheet, Bella Rose designer paper and died-to-match taffeta ribbon (sponge and reinker)...here she is:
