thanks so much for your lovely entries and comments.
It’s Wednesday again and time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. It is challenge #61 and Anything Goes!!!
We also have a new sponsor for the month of September … The Paper Nest Dolls … and the winner’s prize will be a $25 gift voucher.
I had a little sneak peak in their shop and it is full packed with lots of cute images and goodies. Watch this space!
I like to try and make something different for the Anything Goes Challenge … so here we are … The Gift Bag with a Twist:
… what’s the twist, you might ask. Well this gift bag is made from a simple white envelope. Someone once gave me a present in one of these … and this is my version of it.
To make the bag you seal the envelope and then cut open one side. Score and fold the same distance from the three remaining sides. Open your bag up and fold into shape along your score lines. Fold over the triangular tabs and adhere to the bottom. To decorate mine, I used some pretty Pink Petticoat papers and Stampin’Up!’s Chalk Talk Stamp set & Sizzix framelits. For a full tutorial on how to make this bag click here.
For my other bag, I decided to have the opening along one of the longer sides of the envelope. I also want to enter this one in the ‘A Pennant or Bunting’ Challenge at Out of a Hat Creations:
For this bag I used some pretty papers which came already with some matching die cuts. I think I got them a couple of months back with a magazine. It made for a really quick bag.
Over to you now. I love to see your creations.
If you need more inspiration check out the fabulous projects by the very talented DT Ladies at ATSM.
That’s it from me for today.
Enjoy and Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
