I've been itching to use this adorable paper from Doodlebug Design, so today I whipped up a cute set of projects. Love!

zig-zag-bagI just finished updating the Zig Zag Bag last night. It now includes optional solid score lines as well as the entire project saved as a single file.

It's part of the Travel the World SVG Kit, but it's now also available individually. (More details are in my blog post "Update to the Travel the World SVG Kit.")

I had forgotten what a neat project the Zig Zag Bag is, and I thought it would be a great way to showcase some colorful paper, such as the Lots O' Luck Collection from Doodlebug Design.


Here are all the shapes. Although there's lots of dimension, it's pretty easy-peasy to put together.

Screen Shot 2019-01-30 at 6.45.21 AMAs usual, you can see me put the entire original project together step-by-step in its Assembly Tutorial video.

The Zig Zag Bag portion starts at about 7:43 into the video.

I made it at its default size and added two shamrocks, which are a free download on our site (Scalloped Shamrock Free Design).


Screen Shot 2019-01-30 at 6.50.07 AMI left off the bottom layer of the shamrock design and sized them to about 2.5" wide and 1.6" wide.

I used some dimensional adhesive foam squares to create some space between the layers.

I got them on Amazon and I find them really useful, especially because the "Mixed Variety" package contains two different sizes.

Then, I made this quick card from the Autumn Gatefold Cards SVG Kit to feature more of the adorable paper.


I think they look so cute together! I love the "buffalo plaid" patterned paper and the accents of orange and yellow. Not to mention those adhesive enamel ladybugs!!!! ?


I don't think I'll be coming out with anything NEW for Saint Patrick's Day this year, but I had a lot of fun putting this twist on these projects.

More Ideas

I really want to make our Santa Pants project in green.


Or our Snowman Hat Bag leprechaun-style.


Or this little Top Hat (box) in green.


But alas, there's only so much time in the day!

Thanks for reading! Happy Crafting!!
