Steampunk upcycle lunchbag YPP

This month over at Your Paper Pantry, the theme for the lunchbag upcycle swap is 'Steampunk'.  And since I'm loving steampunk these days I decided to sign up and give it a whirl.  You basically need to alter a standard size lunchbag in the appropriate theme, to be used as a gift bag..or insert for a mini.  Here is mine:

I have used paper by Donna Salazar's Antiquities line along with the 7 gypsies Steampunk stamp set...and a butterfly stamp from my stash.  Ticket and clip by Tim Holtz. Metal gears from my stash. Fabric rose is cut from trim purchased at Wild Orchid Crafts and spritzed with Tattered Angels chalkboard spritz. And I have added some polka dot washi tape to top for a little decorative edge.  I folded over the bottom flap and cinched it down to form a little pocket for a little tag. This was a fun swap, I can't wait to hear what next months theme is..

The stunning photo is from Altered Artifacts Etsy store this one is from the Victorian tinprints it!  So please go check out her awesome store for lots of creative images..
