Jari Francis, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Petals & Paisleys Box in a Bag Gift Bag

Happy Saturday, I have a fun Box in a Bag gift bag to share today.  I used the beautiful Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up! to create my gift bag/box.

Box in a Bag



I was asked to create a project for the Creative Crew at Splitcoaststampers using a technique from their tutorial pages   this month.   When I spotted a tutorial on a Box in a Bag, I knew that I had to try it out.  I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for new ways to package little thank you gifts.  This project is fun and easy!  

The tutorial uses retired Stampin’ Up! products, so I improvised with up to date products.  The “bag” part of my Box in a Bag uses Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP.  The “box’ part, found on the bottom uses Mint Macaron card stock.

I used the decorative die from the Flourish Thinlets to create a little border for the top of the box.  It was adhered with liquid glue.  Next, I used my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write marker to create stitches on the top and bottom.  I punched two Mint Macaron Decorative Labels, folded them and adhered them to the top of the bag with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  The ribbons are threaded through two holes punched in the labels with a non-Stampin’ Up! hole punch.
