I love the gold and white Striped Treat Bags in the Stampin’ Up! annual catalog. You can use them for food, cards, gifts, or treats. You can stamp them, add texture by embossing, or go to town with all kinds of embellishments. You can even turn them into a gusseted bag like I did on today’s project!
Here’s this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge Board that inspired the elements I used for today’s project.
It’s easy to pick 3 and create! I went down the right side: sequin, lace, gold. Check out this video to see how to turn this flat bag in to a freestanding gift.
How cool and easy is that?! Just trim 1/8″ from the bottom then score at 1″ and score each side at 3/4″. Then it’s just a couple of snips up from the bottom to the 1″ score line and you’re ready to fold and adhere. From flat to gusseted in just a few quick and simple steps! I scored my bag first then ran it through the Big Shot with the Holly Embossing Folder before making the cuts. I just love how these bags are so versatile!
I used the Merry Little Labels Stamp Set and coordinating Everyday Label Punch to decorate my bag. You will be able to purchase this set as a bundle (and save 10%) starting tomorrow (Sept. 1st) when the Holiday catalog goes live! The Merry Little Christmas (Mega) Suite contains products for all your holiday crafting needs: gift packaging, cardmaking, memory keeping, decor, and more! Stampin’ Up! trainer, Donna, shows you products from the suite, as well as some fun ideas for your Christmas crafting.
I love making my own tags and gift packaging and the products in this suite are perfect for that! I heat embossed the sentiment from Merry Little Labels with Gold embossing powder. I punched Gold Glimmer Paper using the Everyday Label Punch and adhered it behind the embossed label. I used the Gold Mini Sequin Trim with a piece of lace to tie around the ribbon. I attached the label to the bag with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Everyone who ordered from me in August will receive one of these bags with their THANK YOU KITS! Emboss it or embellish it…the choice is up to you! I love to spoil my customers and I appreciate each and every order! I send out card kits and more each month to my customers. My card kits make it quick & easy to create using your new stamps! Everything is included to make cards and/or 3D items…you just need to stamp and send!
Be sure to check back tomorrow as the new Holiday Catalog goes live. I will have a cool video for you!
Have a wonderful day!
