Springtime Gift Bag

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

It's a pretty yukky day here to sum things up! Yesterday we had snow all day then last evening it went from snow to sleet/ freezing rain. Today temps are in the upper 40's and it's raining....no it's POURING! To look out the window it's foggy, windy and raining. Gigi & Bailee want no parts of going out in it. I hope this doesn't last long but I am liking that the temperatures are moving in the right direction! I'm so ready for spring!

So today before I get involved in doing some chores, I wanted to share an adorable bag I made with the Gift Bag Punch Board! I could not wait to get it and as soon as it came I went straight to my stamp table and made this after watching a few tutorials on You Tube on how to create the bags.

This is the large bag and my cardstock was 12 X 6 but you can easily make one that stands taller in which I will be trying very soon! You can also make flaps to close the bag. So many possibilities! I was so happy with this bag that the Gift Bag Punch Board is still on my table waiting for me to use again! I do want to say that I used my Crop A Dile to make the holes at the top because I wanted my ribbon centered so I did not use the hole template on the Gift Bag Punch Board. I still have alot to learn about that board but it's quick & easy for making a cute little gift!!

Springtime Gift Bag:

Stamps: Birthday Blooms (sentiment)
Ink: Soft Suede
Cardstock: Blushing Bride, Whisper White, English Garden DSP
Accessories: Gift Bag Punch Board, Bold Butterfly Framelits, Circle Punch, Crop A Dile (holes), White Pearls, Blushing Bride Ribbon, Tombow Liquid.

Well, that is all for me today!
Busy, busy, busy!
Thanks for stopping by & I hope the weather is nicer where you are!
