Hi my Stampin’ Friends,
In the Summer Months I have so many family birthdays that I always need to make pretty packaging for gifts to go into. Do you find that happens to you?
Today I have a gorgeous Gift Bag that is easily made up and so aptly decorated using the Lovely Inside & Out Stamp Set with co-ordinating Lovely Words Thinlits Dies (which if purchased together gives a saving of 10%).
The Gift Bag has been made using the very pretty NEW Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack. These come in the new In Colours of Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide. Perfect Summer Colours.
I have used Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist to make both of my bags today and that NEW Finely Woven Cotton Ribbon is perfect to use for the handles and so easy to thread too. Useful if you can be all “fingers and thumbs” as they say.
I have fallen in love with these Lovely Words Thinlits Dies and have made so many projects with them over the past few weeks. They die cut like a “dream” and you can use them with the Sweet and Sassy or Layering Ovals Thinlits Dies too as they match up perfectly. All worked out by Stampin’ Up, how clever is that? You can cut out the words from the insides too and just add them to your projects as well, great versatility.
The finished dimensions of this Gift Bag are 3 3/4″ wide, 5″ tall and 2″ deep so you can fit a lot of treats in them. My video shows you how I made them and should you need any crafting products to replicate them for yourself, I would be delighted if you could choose me as your Demonstrator.
Happy Crafting with LOVE from SANDRA xx
