Try to say that 3 times fast! For this swap I thought we'd do something a little different. Find a brown paper bag that has some printing/design on it and cut out two 3 1/2 " squares. Glue them to a heavier background (cardstock, bristol board, watercolor paper, etc). Tangle one of the tiles, and send the second to your partner to tangle. Put the usual info on the back (name of swap, tangles used, name & date). Have fun!

Let me know if you have any questions.

I don't have any paper bags, but I would love to do this one. Would someone be willing to send me a paper bag? Sherry Harmes, PO Box 83, Larsen Bay, Alaska 99624

Everything we purchase, is put directly in cardboard boxes, plastic totes, or cloth bags, to be flown out here....no "paper or plastic." In fact, Kodiak has banned single use plastic bags. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

I'm being a bit dense here, are you talking about a large paper bag that has writing on it or the small type you get in a gift shop. In my head both would be difficult to see the tangles. Are you asking for tangles between the letters or design Or on top of them like a book page? I would like to join this swap but do not want to do the wrong thing.

@Artstamper --I was thinking of a grocery bag or brown fast food bag, where you could cut a tile with approx. 1/2 of it with the brown bag showing around the letters/design. Tangles can go between or over the printing, your choice. (If the gift shop bag has an all over print, that might be too busy.) I hope this helps. If you still have questions, let me know.
