In my last post I shared with you the presentation box we made for our September Card Class and I remembered that I hadn’t shared the packaging for the August Class. Our cards for the August class were all made using Kinda Eclectic – one of my favourite stamp sets from the Stampin’ Up! catalogue.
We made our presentation bag using Chevron Tag a Bag Gift Bags. We placed our cards inside the bag and turned over the top of the bag to create a flap on the front. We stamped the “sunburst” image from the stamp set onto Whisper White card using Early Expresso ink. The image is cut using a Circle framelit so that it creates a half circle. We cut another slightly larger half circle from Sahara Sand card and attached the two half circles to each other lining up the straight edges. The half circles were attached to the Tea Lace Paper Doily, lining up the straight edges with the fold on the doily. We stamped two sets of leaves using Garden Green ink and cut them out. They are attached to the Doily along the left hand side. We stamped the large and the small butterfly onto Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink and punched them using the Elegant Butterfly and Small Butterfly punches. The butterflies are attached to each other using a Glue Dot and then to the doily using a Glue Dot in the centre and a 1/2 dimensional under each wing. Lastly we added three Basic Pearls to the centre of the butterfly. We tied a bow with Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine through a Clothespin and used it to hold the Tea Lace Paper Doily over the top of the folded bag.
I really love how quick and easy it was to decorate the Chevron Bag and can see lots of variations for different occasions. What about you?
Bye for now,
