Hello, My Friends!
Today’s project was created using the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper. This beautiful paper is just perfect for using on alternative projects such as this beautiful gift bag. I created it as a little gift bag to coordinate with a Bird Ballard card, perfect coordination just love it!
You will need one 12 x 12 piece of Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper. There are no true measurements This gift bag is very simple and quick to make.
Decide which side of the designer series paper you want to be on the outside then fold about 1 inch down along the top portion I then varnished using a bone folder.
And now take the edges of your paper overlapping them and adhere together with some glue, creating a cylinder shape.
Now fold up the bottom portion roughly 3 inches varnishing the edge.
The next step is to fold in the left and right side towards the center.
Now you will take the top and the bottom points and fold them up towards the center line, again varnishing your edge using your bone folder.
Now you will create seams for each side of your bag folding in the side to the center approximately 1 inch and then varnish your edges.
Now when you unfold them and open them up you will have formed the bottom and the sides of your gift bag.
Then using Stitched Nested Label and Whisper White cardstock cut a label the width of the bag. Now using the Bird Ballard Suite stamp the bird image sitting on the branch using Memento ink, color using Stampin’ Blends Markers, cut image using paper snips. I then attached the bird image to the label using dimensionals.
I added a Linen Thread Bow and a key from the Bird Ballard trinkets. Attached to the front of the gift bag I then made two handles using the Whisper White Flax Ribbon adhere down using tear and tape to the inside edging of the bag.
A pretty quick and simple project you can also re-create this with a couple different versions you could use a 6 x 6 piece of card stock or designer series paper or attached two pieces together to create a larger gift bag all using the same principle. I used the gift bag and placed a body spray and hand lotion which fits perfectly in the bag.
I hope you have enjoyed!
