I have had SO much fun making the project for today. I was inspired with the color scheme from Hand Stamped Sentiment Color Challenge using Hello Honey, Night of Navy and Marina Mist, SO FUN!! I created this CUTE little (well, really it’s not that small) gift bag using two envelopes from my AUGUST PAPER PUMPKIN kit. There are SO many cute things you can create with this kit, I shared the cards I made as designed in THIS POST last month.
But the FUNNEST thing about this gift bag is the adorable SHAKER EMBELLISHMENT! My dear friend Erica Cerwin shared how to make these super easy and adorable shakers in a card on the STAMPIN’ UP GRAND VACATION, she was great!
First I used my circle framelits to create the circle cut in the envelope, then I placed that same circle framelit INSIDE the starburst framelit that was placed on my Marina Mist card stock piece and ran it through my Big Shot. Then I secured the decorative starburst piece to the front of the envelope using Tombo Adhesive.
I created the little shaker portion with a small cello bag, cut down from the top to make it small enough for just my opening. BUT before I sealed it shut with some snail adhesive I filled the bag with custom made SEQUIN EMBELLISHMENTS, which I shared a tutorial on yesterday. CHECK IT OUT HERE. The white you see in the background of the shaker portion is the tissue paper that’s inside the gift bag- SUPER CUTE, right?!
I made a simple flag sentiment piece using my newest, and FAVE Photopolymer set called YEE-HAW!! It’s so stinkin’ cute! I tied off the top using some Night of Navy seam binding ribbon. What a cute little project!! By the way TOMORROW IS THE LAST DAY to subscribe to MY PAPER PUMPKIN and get 50% OFF YOUR FIRST 2 MONTHS!! ENTER CODE HALFOFF2
I can’t get over how FAB the recent PAPER PUMPKIN KITS have been, I LOVE them SOOO- oh but the best part… so if you sign up today you won’t get the August kit BUT by subscribing you are able to order PAST KITS, which are ONLY available to members. So you can grab a refill kit which includes everything I SHOWED HERE and the only thing it doesn’t include is the exclusive stamp set that comes in a full kit. BUT you could easily substitute for a set you already own- easy peasy!
