A gift bag for the boys?


This is a really easy double bag using one piece of designer paper - here Outlaw (about to retire & reduced to $10.48). This would be perfect for putting in a lotto ticket (as yes dreams can come true) or some movie money or other gift voucher.

Split Coast Stampers has a tutorial but it's really complicated & confusing for once. I learnt how to create one of these at the demonstrator regional training last year just using grid paper & a bone folder.

  • Take one side of the 12x12" DSP & turn in the right & left hand side edges approx. 2.5cm
  • Turn the paper round so they are now the top & bottom edge
  • Bring the new LHS & RHS in approx. 9 cm each
  • Fold in half (seam to the outside)
  • Make a W around the centre fold by turning over approx. 1.5cm & VOILA!
  • Stick the top edge together with Sticky Strip & decorate

Stamp set: In the Stars
Paper: Outlaw DSP, Very Vanilla, Real Rust
Ink: Real Rust, Creamy Caramel, Sage Shadow
Other: Horizontal slit punch, twill, jumbo eyelets, crop-a-dile, dimensionals

NOTE: In the Stars is in our current Summer Mini catalogue but has not made the cut & is not in the new IB+C to be launched April 1st. So if you're interested in getting this or the current designer papers - March 31 is the deadline! So contact ME if interested. This really is a great set for making a card quickly & many of the star images can be punched out with the star punches for ease.

Wow that bag is so neat. It would be good for a male.
