Use a Bag to Brag and Share Your Favorite Photos

April 15, 2016   

Brag Bags are not only a cute way to share your favorite photos, they are sturdy and hold up well. I spoke with a couple ladies this weekend that said they’d had their Brag Bags for over three years and they were in amazing condition – especially since they used them every day. The bottom wasn’t torn up. The handle wasn’t ragged. Other than a little dirt here and there, they looked brand new! If you don’t have a Brag Bag, this is definitely the time to get one, so let me show you how fun these bags can look.
