Hello and thanks for joining me.
Today’s project is a little gift bag that uses a similar method to the old Mini Treat Bag dies that Stampin’ Up! used to offer….
I used some the Mosaic Mood speciality designer series paper to create the bag. I cut a piece to measure 8 by 9 & 1/2 inches. On the long side I scored at 2 & 1/2 inches and at 7 inches. On the short side I scored at 1/2 inch and 8 & 1/2 inches. I cut the bottom panels like this…
To form the bag I added glue to the bottom flap and folded in one of the sides. I then added glue to the edge of the other side and folded that in too. Super easy!
To decorate I added some ribbons and retired sequin trim with glue dots. I stamped the pandas from Wildy Happy stamp set in Stazon ink onto Whisper White card and coloured with Black and Gray watercolour pencils and a blender pen . The sentiment is from the same set.
I trimmed the stamped card to fit, cut a banner in the bottom and folded over 1 & 1/2 inches from the top so that it would hook over the top of the bag.
I popped in my gift, folded over the top of the bag, added the tag and a retired library clip. And here’s what’s inside….
Which is why I chose to stamp the pandas! Lol.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project. I think it makes a cute little gift to someone in need of a bit of pampering.
I’ve listed the products used below and you can click on the links to purchase any of them from my friend Valerie’s online Stampin’ Up! store. I’ve made a suggestion as an alternative to the library clip I used.
