I love to give gifts especially when I make the gift bags and cards for them to go in. On Monday night I showed how to make these two bags using designer series paper. I did not come up with these on my own. Ronda Wade was so kind to share how she made them on YouTube.
These gift bags are fast and easy and a great way to use your designer series paper. Stampin' Up! has some of the most beautiful designer series paper that I have seen. Are you a designer paper hoarder like me? I have been trying to use it more and more lately.
To make this gift bag, you are going to start out with two pieces of any 12" x 12" designer series paper. On the above bag I used Stampin' Up! Magnolia Lane designer series paper.
The measurements are below:
1st 12" x 12" designer series paper
- score at 3" and 9"
- on other side score at 1" (this will be the top of your bag) and 9" (this will be the bottom of your bag)
2nd 12" x 12" designer series paper
- cut 4" off one of the sides (make sure it is on the side of your bag, not top or bottom)
- on 8" side score at 1" and 7"
- on 12" side score at 1" (top of bag) and 9" (bottom of bag)
To make this gift bag you are going to start with two pieces of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock. On the above bag I used Mossy Meadow with Magnolia Lane designer series paper.
On both pieces of cardstock:
- on 8" side score at 1 1/2" and 7"
- on 11" side score at 2 3/4" (this will be the bottom)
Designer Series Paper
- cut 2 at 2 1/2" x 8"
- cut 2 at 5 1/4" x 8"
You can use the 4" piece that you cut off to make a card with it. I will have directions and measurements for the card on Friday along with information about my Holiday catalog paper share.
On Monday night I did my Facebook live on how to make these two gift bags. Check out the video below.
There are so many possibilities with all the beautiful designer series paper in the 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! annual catalog. I just got my preorder from the new 2019 holiday catalog and oh my goodness, the designer series paper is so beautiful. I keep thinking about all the different gift bags I could make with it.
Thank you for stopping in today. I hope you have a fantastic Wednesday.
Happy Stampin and
