Here is another Gift bag I have been making recently. This bag was inspired by one in our monthly Demonstrator magazine recently. I set about to recreate it. I will give you the instructions below.
I have used the Jolly Holiday DSP and then used the Delightful Decorations stamp set and the punch to decorate it. I added some Rhinestones in the middle of the ornaments. To seal the bag I punched out a scallop oval from Old Olive and an oval from Cherry Cobbler. I adhered these together and attached them to the bag. You can use a velcro dot to the front so it is easy to open and close to get the goodies out!!!
I had made another one previously to this Christmas bag using the DSP Lap of Luxury. I punched 2 butterflies, one from the DSP and another stamped from the Hostess set ‘Punch Potpourri’. These were adhered to the front and a Rhinestone added to the centre. To close this bag I punched out a piece with the small Oval punch from Pretty in Pink and used a glue dot for this one. I just changed this yesterday and added a bow with the Pretty in Pink Satin ribbon. I also added some tags with the Tiny Tags. One from the DSP and one stamped on Pretty in Pink. These were punched out and tied on with Hemp Twine. I really liked how this turned out!
You can decorate these any way you like. It is better to use DSP for them though as they bend easier than card.
Here are the instructions to create these cute bags:
Cut DSP to 28cmx14cm. Score on the 14cm side at 5cm. Turn and score on the 28cm side at 8cm, 13cm, 21cm, 26cm.
Cut on the score lines along the long side up to the 5cm score line. You can cut off the small tab at the end. Add adhesive to the bottom tabs (on the right side of the 2 small tabs and on 1 of the large tabs), and to the narrow side tab (on the wrong side). Does that make sense? Assemble the bag together. Pinch the sides in. To seal you can use a velcro dot. Decorate as desired.
These are very quick to make. So you have no excuse not to make any of these to put little treats in!
