This is a class I did recently at the Retirement Resort. I have been visiting these ladies every week (except when I am away) since March. We have been having lots of fun and getting to know each other well.
This gift bag and the matching card, gift card holder and bookmark use a couple of products which are retiring and which I am going to miss very much – Triple Treat Flower single stamp, Finial Press Embossing Folder, the beautiful Real Red 5/8″ Satin Ribbon and the 5Petal Flower punch. The bag is one of the first things I learned to make as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator (thank you Nicki), it is made from an envelope, in this case a largish one but you can make these from any size envelope. Simply score on 3 sides, tape up the bottom corners and add some decoration front and back. Easy.
The book mark was shared by Stampin’ Up! in the Impressions Magazine for Demonstrators only. It is really simple. Cut card to 4″ x 4-1/4″, score on the 4″ side diagonally at 2″. Cut a 2-3/4″ square of card in half diagonally and cover the flaps to make a pocket and decorate as desired. Oh I just realised we used the retiring Eyelet Edge Punch as well!.
The gift card holder is just a long rectangle, scored and the bottom is taped to make a pocket.
Of course the card just matches the rest of the decorations. I wanted to share these with you to remind you that if you want anything from the retiring list, then make sure that you order it early, because when these things are gone, they will really not be coming back.
You can download the instructions here . I have also added the instructions to the Free Tutorials page because even if you don’t have the particular items used, they can easily be substituted with something else.
Bye for now, Kris.
