I know! Two posts in one week, here’s hoping I’m starting to manage my college work a little better….!
I can’t reveal too much about the goodies within today’s project as they’re Christmas presents for my family (my craft room smells gorgeous though!), but I thought I could share the gift wrapping that I have done to put them in.
The Tag-A-Bags have sadly been an overlooked purchase in my craft stash, not sure why as they are BRILLIANT! I followed this tutorial to create the expanding bag rather than use them flat as they come.
As you can see two are similar, and one’s different, this was to help me remember who they are to go to! So two are for one person hence the similarities!
The Burlap ribbon has been another over looked item in my craft collection, I think because I associate it so much with Christmas or Wreaths, but I’m so glad I tested it against the bag. Think that the burlap looks stunning with the crumb cake card stock and gold trim.
I had a bit of a play around with the doilies and thought they worked well with this project as well, what do you think?
A tip we were shown at convention was colouring the gold trim with the blendabilities to achieve a multitude of colours; it is now one of my favourite things to do! The gold trim here has been coloured with the Cherry Cobbler Blendy – it’s so pretty!
The confetti stars punch has been used on the flap on the bag and on the tag. This punch is so cute! Think my Christmas cards are mainly going to be sequins and stars at this rate!
