Default TLC368 ~ Box in A Bag ~ (03/12/12)

Hi Stampers

Wait for it.. wait for it... TEN (10) days until Spring!!! I don't know about you all, but it was a very springlike weekend here in Colorado. We're looking at 70s for the most of this coming week, too! Yay!!!

~ Box in A Bag ~


This week we're going to use a great tutorial from the resources section. It's called Box in A Bag, by Diana Gibbs. I love the 'bones' of this tutorial. If you follow the directions as shown, you'll have a wonderful little gift bag. You can also alter the box to make it smaller, more squat, or even use acetate for a clear bag. Any way you do it, I think you'll agree that it's a great tool to have in your crafting toolbox!

Here's my sample:

~ Luck O' The Irish ~

When uploading, please use KEYWORD TLC368 (no spaces!).

You can view the entire TLC368 gallery HERE.

Oh this is fun, Holly! I love making these and it's been quite sometime since I have done so. Looking forward to playing along this evening!

I'm loving our weather up here too!! We aren't quite 70's but been in the high 50's and low 60's....which is way warmer than the norm(30's).

Heart TLC368 Love You Gift Bag

Holly, thanks for the great technique challenge! I used a ruler and a grid marked acrylic art board, and it worked just fine. I wanted to go with a pink/gray color combo- so I combined this with SU's Dreams du Jour Love you stamp, a pink gingham ribbon, and a green plaid fabric border for St. Patrick's Day.

Smile TLC368 Green Gift Bag

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I did a primarily green gift bag, using SU's Tags til Christmas for my To/From tag. I added a brown bag watercolored strip for the bag top, and added a button and some sequined adhesive hearts.
Have a great Monday! Here's Green Gift Bag

Holly, I love your Irish Bag and I was reading how you adjusted the size but I am not sure what size to cut the bottom piece. You had the measurement 3x2 but that is the size of the bottom of the bag. What size do I cut for the bottom for your sample and where do I score? Thanks!
