This card was created for the new SUO108 “The Treats The Thing”Challenge (create a treat holder) and I decided to create a gift bag versus a small treat container and used the Splitcoaststampers Box in a Bag tutorial found here.
The only thing I changed was the paper used for the bag itself- instead of Designer Series Paper (DSP) I used Very Vanilla cardstock and I also used a current punch (versus the retired Tab Punch) :-)
I hope that you will visit us at SUO-Challenges to check out the rest of the Design Team projects and join in on in on the fun with your Stampin’ Up! Only creations!
Using the Simply Scored™ Tool, score your 4 ½” x 4 ½” cardstock (you cannot see it but I used Always Artichoke) at 1” on all four sides and assemble the box per the tutorial.
Ink the branch stamp from An Open Heart using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp repeatedly onto the 5 ½” x 11” piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Color the images using Stampin’ Blendabilities™- Old Olive and Wisteria Wonder Collections.
Add distressing with Gorgeous Grunge and Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink and sponge Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink over the Very Vanilla to “age” the paper.
Use Sticky Strip along the bottom of the prepared box (from the step above) and add the stamped cardstock panel to create the “bag”.
Add the strip over the bottom of the panel along with the Decorative Label Punch pieces at the top (for the tabs). Punch a hole into the “tabs” to insert the ½” Early Espresso Seam Binding Ribbon bow.
Add the rolled Wisteria Wonder flowers along with the Early Espresso leaves from the Bird Builder Punch (create the rolled flower using the 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punch, cutting a spiral toward the center starting at the outside edge and rolling up- see the basic Splitcoaststampers tutorial here).
Ink the sentiment from Blooming with Kindness using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Create the banner using the Hexagon Punch and add the distressing with the Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink with the same steps taken on the bag portion.
Add the fussy-cut bird image along with a few Pe
arls to finish off the bag (I had this image in my
stash already colored with Stampin’ Write Markers- Basic Black, Cajun Craze,
Sahara Sand, So Saffron and “fussy-cut” and ready to go).
