For the Clearsnap/Twinery Hop:

I created a mini book and a matching ephemera bag using Smooch Spritz, ColorBox Premium Dye Ink and twine from The Twinery.

I used Smooch Spritz to color the bag a pretty teal color. Then I used the Stephanie Barnard ColorBox Premium Dye Inkpad in Licorice to stamp a typewriter and sentiment using October Afternoon Stamps. I used a heat gun to heat set the ink and make it permanent. The cotton bags take the ink readily and are so fun for holding tickets, stones, shells, or other tokens from a memorable trip.
These cotton bags are available in my etsy shop.

The bags start out like this:
I laid one of the bags in a Color Catcher from Clearsnap. Then I sprayed it with Smooch Spritz in River Mossy and blotted it with a paper towel. The pressure from the paper towel helps the ink to move evenly through the fibers of the bag.
 Next I stamped the images on the bag using October Afternoon stamps and Stehpanie Barnard ColorBox Premium Dye Ink in Licorice. Heat with a gun to set the ink in the fabric.
Next, tie a piece of The Twinery twine to one end of the string in the bag. Pull the string through–sure, the string the bag comes with is functional but The Twinery twine is so cute, it definitely makes the bag better!! Thread beads onto the twine ends to keep it from coming out of the bag.
Attach the bag to the book binding or adhere inside the cover of the book to hold mementos from a trip or event.
Here are some more pics from the inside of the book:
Wrap twine around some of the pages and tie in a bow. Tuck photos or ephemera under the twine. It also helps tie the book and bag together.

Supplies:

And, if you are here from the Clearsnap & The Twinery Hop, we're all tied up in twine and loving it!! Aren't the colors just so cute and festive? Our teams are sharing some amazing ideas — be sure to check out The Twinery blog to see their team's amazing creations.

And, it's not a Hop without a fabulous prize so here's what we're giving away:
Smooch Spritz JUMBO in Gold Glow, Donna Salazar Mix'd Media Inx in Peridot, and ColorBox Archival Dye Inkpad in Pinkolicious!!! We'll choose one winner on May 8, 2012 and announce on our blog post that day.
These inks match some of The Twinery's signature colors to a tee!! Here's how to enter:
