Hey everyone, thanks so much for stopping by today. I have a fun little gift bag to share with you, using the newest "Scalloped Handle Bag" die by Lori Whitlock for Sizzix. This die is so sweet and the perfect accompanyment for a party as a little treat bag. I hope you enjoy!
This little bag is so sweet, I can see using it for so many different things, and it was so very simple to put together.
I used the "Floressa" die by Prima to make the big rosette on the side, and the curvy banner die for a small sentiment.
To create this bag you need from Sizzix:
"Floressa" by Prima
"Curvy Banners" by Tim Holtz
additional supplies needed:
- Pattern paper
- glittered paper
- misc banner embellishments
- wide contrasting ribbon
- hot glue
- distressing ink
- permanent tape runner
The first thing I did was die cut a scalloped bag from the die, and the two sides that accompany it from white cardstock and pattern paper, (I like my gift bags in contrasting colors so I chose different papers to die cut).
Next, adhere the papers to the white cardstock, fold at the scored lines and adhere the sides of the bag using hot glue.
Basically it's as easy as that and you can stop there, or continue embellishing as I did.
First I wrapped a large contrasting wide ribbon around the bag and tied into a bow, securing it closed.
Then to embellish, die cut from the "Floressa" die, using different papers and batting and glittered paper. Stack them on top of each other, adhering the layers as you go. (I also used some die cut banners for under the flower as seen). Once everything is layered, secured, adhere the rosette to the bag using hot glue.
Then using the smallest "Curvy Banner" die cut, ink and using rub-ons, rub on your sentiment, then adhere to the bag using hot glue.
Super simple, and so fun, I love this die. It's easy and fun and makes the sweetest gifts.
Have a great week everyone!
