Gift Bags don’t have to be girly

Hello.

When I make gift bags I’m normally making them for little treats for my friends, most of whom are female.  However, the men in our lives deserve some treats too and that’s what I had in mind for this project…

This bag is made by using the Gift Bag Punch Board and is sized perfectly for a few chocolate treats and a gift card too, so the lucky recipient gets two treats disguised as one!

I used some of the Best Route designer series paper that measures 11 x 6 inches.  I used the medium bag score lines on the Gift Bag Punch Board, which makes creating bags like this so quick and easy – anyone can do it.

As the paper I used features Blueberry Bushel, Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight colours these are what I used for my sentiment too.  The Treat Yourself stamp and the sprinkles stamps all come from the Picture Perfect Birthday set.  I stamped onto Whisper White card and used one of the Layering Circle Dies to cut this out.  I used my 2 inch punch on Daffodil Delight card and my Starburst punch on Blueberry Bushel card.  I glued all 3 layers together with Snail adhesive.  I added some Whisper White Classic Weave ribbon in a Z shape to the front of the bag and then added the sentiment over it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The bag is simply kept closed with a Gold Library Clip.

This is much nicer way to give a gift card but is really quick and easy to make – perfect!
