As you have guessed by now, the past few weeks have been busy and I’ve neglected my blog. The good news is that I have made some beautiful projects that I’ll be sharing with you in the upcoming days. A “Bags & Tags” class was held last week and the group of a dozen ladies were able to make four decorated bags that will be perfect to use for gift giving. Today, I am sharing two of the bags. The remaining gift bags will be posted later this week.
The first was made using one sheet of 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (DSP) to construct the bag. The finished bag size is approximately 5-1/2″ x 8″. There are numerous plans for making paper bags and boxes online but the plans for this particular bag came from “Stamp Academy”. Thanks to the Stamp Academy gals for their great instructions!
Gift bag made using Stampin’ Up! Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper
NOTE: The Sweet Sorbet DSP is currently a featured selection
in the Sale-a-Bration brochure
and is free with a $50 purchase…but hurry, Sale-a-Bration ends on March 31st!
The second bag is an embellished Tag a Bag gift bag. The chrysanthemum was a blast to make and really makes the bag special. Several Stampin’ Up! demonstrators have videos online showing methods for making the flower and I watched Tanya Bell’s short video on You Tube as a guide for making my sample. The flower base was made using Daffodil Delight card stock punched with the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle and 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle. Edges were sponged using Crisp Cantaloupe Classic Stampin’ Pad. To add glimmer, Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz was misted on each layer of the flower. Be sure to check out Tanya’s tutorial for the simple steps.
