Twelve Weeks of Christmas!!!
Today starts the beginning of twelve weeks of Christmas projects. If you’ve looked at your calendars you will see that I’m already a week behind! No worries, twelve total projects will be posted so stay tuned and look for a bonus post before jolly, old St. Nick arrives! Join my email list now to make sure you don’t miss a single one!
My first project in this series is this delightful little gift bag. I think it’s the perfect size for a small cellophane bag of bath salts, tea light or votive candles, a gift card and candies or, of course, cash!
Directions (view the video below for a complete tutorial):
The bag is made with All Is Calm Designer Series Paper. I used a 12″ x 6″ piece of the DSP and scored it in landscape mode at 1-3/4″, 5-1/2″, 7-1/4″ and 11″. Then, in portrait mode, I scored at 1-3/4″ and 5-1/2″. For the tag I used the Endless Wishes Stamp Set, stamping the snowflakes with Soft Sky Ink and the sentiment with Black StazOn Ink onto a 2″ circle punched from Whisper White Card Stock. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals I attached the stamped circle to a 2-3/8″ scallop circle punched from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. The circles were attached with Dimensionals to a 2″ x 4″ piece of Pear Pizzazz Card Stock that I flagged at one end. The tag is attached to the bag using Snail Adhesive. Finally, the bag is tied up cute with Pear Pizzazz Cotton Ribbon and sprinkled with Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
