The last couple of days of the school hols have been busy, busy, busy. Had a great time but not doing enough crafting so tonight I was fiddling around putting the final touches to a birthday gift and card.
What do ya think?
I've made this bag before but in a smaller size. Had to devise an enlargement as the gift was bigger than expected! Anyway, after some thought and a good ol' measure with the SU grid paper - couldn't do without that, I can tell you - I'd worked it out. And I think it looks extra pretty with the choc chip sides.
Supplies - 2 sheets of DSP from Love Sparkles Simply Scrappin Kit, Chocolate Chip textured cardstock, 4 jumbo brads, 80cm of grosgrain ribbon in Chocolate Chip - I used the 5/8" because it's chunky. Tools used were the cropadile, large heart punch, scallop circle punch & 1 3/8" circle & 1 1/4" circle punches.
Quick Tip: when making bags or boxes, use Sticky Strip to hold them together. Snail just won't go the distance.
Here's the card. Don't you love this colour combo? It's a piece of Le Jardin that I was lucky to find because it was one of my favourites last year....or was it the year before? Anyway, the colours in it are Bashful Blue, So Saffron & Always Artichoke, in case you want to find something similar. The plain cardstock is Bashful Blue & the ribbon, my fav Choc Chip. I've used Gallery Stamp Set and cut the image out after stamping it in Choc Chip on Very Vanilla Cardstock. The letter I, is a chipboard letter which I've covered liberally in snail and then piled with fine glitter in the darkest chocolate I could find. Voila!
Leave me a comment if you like it. I'm happy to share a "How to" sheet if you want to do the bag.
Until next time, get stamping!
