Gifts and Packaging are always fun to paper crafters, and especially so with all the beautiful papers/ tools/ embellishments and fun products availalble.
I started with a CASE of a CASE when I fell in love with a little handbag on Bronwyn's Blog from the stamp review crew using the Petite Petals stampset some weeks ago. The instructions originally come from Scrap and stamp with Frenchie (here) and it is a quick little project.
My first little bag is made with some of the gorgeous English Garden DSP using old olive and blushing bride as the trims.
However, I also fell in Love with the All Boxed Up stampset when I first got the Catalogue and I have used it extensively already. It has the perfect little verses to decorate the inside of all manner of cards. The project on page 53 demonstrates how easy it is to use, so I have modified Bronwyn's little bag to a bigger bag so I can use that closure
These are the 4 little notecards using some more new toys- the leaf framelits, gold buttons, and gold ribbon, and the hostess set A Whole Lot of Lovely.
To make the bag I used a piece of DSP 6 x 10 and scored at 11/4" and 43/4" along the long edges, rotated and scored at 4 1/2" and 5 1/2" and made it as per the basic fold pattern.The tag is stamped using the little stamp from a Whole Lot of Lovely. It makes a sweet little gift.
