Hi there, how was your weekend? Mine was busy and fun as we had a neighborhood party and I was cooking and baking, than just enjoying time spent with friends. Holidays are here, so time for lots of parties. Are you having parties and baking cookies like I am?
Anyway, this week I wanted to show you a couple of last minute ideas and today I have a video for you to watch as well. We all make so many cards during the year, right? And how many people would love to receive those as gifts? I bet quite a few. I know my friends always enjoy my cards, so it’s a really nice Christmas Gift. So I thought why not make a fancy bag to put the cards in…as might as well. So today I use the Gold Stripe Treat bags and decorated it using the Winter Woods bundle and here is what I came up with. And to top it all, the tag I made can also be used as a bookmark, so now you have two gifts in one!
Aren’t these pretty?? Here is how I made these:
- I cut a 2 x 5 1/2 Coastal Cabana panel and punched the top part using the Scalloped Tag Topper. I used the Stamparatus to stamp the Wood background using Whisper White ink. I stamped the sentiment using Real Red on the top portion.
- I stamped two trees onto Old Olive card stock with Old Olive ink, die cut the full tree and the dimensional tree, inked them up with white ink and using dimensionals I adhered them together. Using Snail I adhered the tree off set.
- Cut 8″ Real Red ribbon and tied it through the tag hole.
- I added my cards in the envelope and folded the flap down. Cut another 18″ Real Red Ribbon and tied my ribbon around the envelope. Finally using two 8″ gold mini sequin trims I tied the tag to the ribbon and that is it! You have your gift ready to go!
And I have the video how I made this, so why not watch it and create along with me!
And if you would like to recreate this gift bag and Bookmark, here are the products I used.
