Handmade bags make even the smallest gift special. And the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers are perfect for making gift bags! Today’s project and video will help you create your own gift bags out of any designer series paper. I’ve chosen the You’re a Peach paper (my fave).
Our 2-sided papers work perfectly for these bags. Just turn down the 1″ flap and you have a coordinated border.
MEASUREMENTS FOR THE GIFT BAG:
- Cut 2 pieces of paper, each one 8″ x 8″
- Score each piece 1″ down from the edge you choose to be the top of the bag, and score 2″ on the other three sides
- Fold and burnish all score lines On one of the 8″ x 8″ sheets
- Cut out both 2″ x 2″ squares on the bottom left and right corners
- Assemble the bag according to the video instructions
Here are two bags created from the lovely You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper.
You can decorate the front of the bags any way you like. For these bags I’ve used some Basic White doilies cut with the Encircled in Beauty Dies. Then I added a peach and leaf stamped and die cut using the Sweet as a Peach Bundle. The sentiment is also from the set.
Inside these bags are some cute Mini Jam Jars. They are part of the You’re a Peach Suite. The suites in the catalog are great because they combine four (4) coordinating items that you’d want anyway. Most of the time they include the bundle at a 10% discount.
Recently I’ve been all about this suite, and friends have been giving me “peachy” things! The other day a friend brought me some yummy peach jelly candies that fit right inside of one of the Mini Jam Jars!!
Thank you for stopping by today! Happy Stamping!
