Post#86 Tall Slim Giftbag

Going through a few of my old bookmarks,I found a link to this project tutorial by Sam Donald…..I had wanted to try it out as soon as I saw it but never got around to it till now….I love how beautiful these gift bags look and the best part is that we can make two bags from one sheet of 12” X 12″ cardstock…
The tutorial video is excellent as always and here’s the link for it – Typeset Birthday Bag Tutorial by Sam Donald
I loved making and decorating these bags….I tried one with plain cardstock and one with printed paper….both turned out great…
Hope you liked them too..

Post#59 Colours Of The Rainbow

I am not sure whether this technique is called the sunburst or starburst but it has been very popular for a while…it is an excellent way to use your scrap paper too…and that is exactly what I did…and luckily I had scrap papers in all the colours of the rainbow…. 🙂
I started with eight bits of paper 1&1/2′ x 4″ and cut them all diagonally from top left point to bottom right point….these were perfect for making two cards….for making one card I would’ve used just four strips….
I then adhered the triangular sections to a piece of card and cut off all the extra bits…this was glued to the top layer of the card….added a ribbon or paper strip to hide the section where it meets the top layer….attached the die cuts and sentiments…put on some sequins to decorate and the cards were ready…
Hope you liked these cards…

Post#37 Gift Card Envelope Pouch

I think it is quite sensible to give a simple gift card instead of a present to someone you don’t know very well and let them choose something themselves…what you can do is to present the gift card in a more beautiful way and not in the very boring printed card holder that retailers give you….
I have used the WRMK envelope punch board here and just scored and punched three sides of the 5″ square cardstock instead of four…the fourth end has been left open and you can see a  hint of the gift card inside…
I decided not use double sided paper for this project….instead I used a stencil and distress inks to print a design on the back of the printed paper…the front of the envelope pouches are decorated with die cuts and stamped sentiments…
Hope you liked these.

Post#20 Note Card Set

There were two parts of this project…both of which I quite enjoyed making…..This is a 3×3″ note card set with envelopes which sits nicely in a small box…great for a gift…
The cards have all have a printed top layer and are decorated with various die cuts and punch outs..a few golden sequins as well..
I made the simple envelopes using the envelope punch board…
The card box was a bit of a challenge as I had to come up with all the specifications myself…..and after a few tries I did get it right and the cards and envelopes fit in nicely…
Hope you liked them.
