Very nice look! I really dig the brown paper bag look (we actually wrapped X-mas gifts in this the other year for a nice simple effect) and they look great with plain old black ink too with the brown adding some complexity to the design.

Also cool drawing, did you do it?

Boom! Microsoft Excel. Might have to make a thinner boarder on the outside but this was super easy to do. Super easy.

Nope, I don't have the skills for that. I hunted around on the internet and found this one. The site that I used is on the bottom of the label.

I used thinned Elmer's school glue. Not sure if this was the best way, but it worked.

I usually use glue sticks. They're cheap and effective.

I've been using gelatin lately, and it works great! Haven't tried it on the paper bag stock, but on standard printing paper it holds as long as you need it to, but comes off clean and easy in hot water (no need to boil, just hot tap water is enough).
