Gift Packaging

March 9, 2013

I am a little late sharing the gift bag that I decorated to hold Elyssa’s birthday present.  Elyssa loves clothes and before she started school this year would quite likely wear at least 3 different sets of clothes each day.   So that’s what I bought her for her birthday, lots of clothes.  However, you need something to give them in so I decorated a plain white gift bag which I purchased at Spotlight (Australia).

Elly's-gift-bag-2I embossed a piece of Whisper White card using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  This attached it to Pretty in Pink card, then to Chocolate Chip which has both long edges punched using the Scallop Trim Border Punch and then to the front of the gift bag.  I stamped the letters of Elyssa’s name using a long retired stamp set onto Whisper White card and punched them out using the 1/2″ Circle Punch.  I cut Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip card using the Petite Pennants Build Punch.  I attached all of the pieces together and then attached them to the front of the bag.  I don’t use this punch often enough but really love the way the pennant fits across the bag.  I wanted to decorate the back of the bag but didn’t want to make another pennant.


Elly's-gift-bagSoooo remember the little Heart Shaped Door Hanger which I shared in this post that I made using a tutorial from the Stamp Academy.  Well, I decided that it was too delicate to just pop inside the bag so I hung it over the handle on the back of the bag and it was just perfect.  Remember you can take a look at this tutorial by clicking on the Stamp Academy link in my side bar and then on the Free Video link.  I’m sure you will be impressed enough to want to join this fantastic site.


Bye for now, Kris.

    What a great idea Kris. I’m sure she has it on her door already. I also know of a couple of little girsl that do the same thing & change 3/4 times a day & then want me to wash them the same day to wear the next day……
