Jennifer is sweet, and fun! And today, she will show us how to make a Valentine's bad with those same qualities! Using our February sponsors, Unity Staps and eCraft diecutable cardstock she created some sweet bags, in no time!
I know a guy who's tough but sweet
Notice how sassy Mischief is being, she’s totally sticking her tongue out at you!
Here’s a shot of a completed bag...
Pretty dang cute, if’n I say so myself!
I really do love how these turned out...
What I Used:
WorldWin Papers - Licorice, Ripe Tomatoes & White Flour
Unity Stamps - an ‘Itty Bitty’ set & the ‘Be Mine’ set
Echo Park - Yours Truly pack (purchased online @ A Cherry on Top)
My Mind’s Eye - Love Me pack (purchased online @ A Cherry on Top)
Lettering Delights - Love Flourish & Basic Tags svg sets
Martha Stewart Score Board (Hobby Lobby)
Red Glitter card stock (Michael’s)
Red/White buttons (WalMart)
Red Ribbon (Michael’s)
Trimmer with Decorative blade - my glitter card stock was insanely thick.
Black ink pad
Silver, Pearl or White ink pad (I used a shimmery pearl)
Scotch Advanced Glue Glider
How I Did It:
The ‘bag’ itself is made from a piece of card stock that is 6”(H)x10.5”(W). I found it was easier to cut the paper to size and then slide them into my eCraft. In eCraftshop Pro, I imported one of the heart flourishes, resized it to about 2”x2” and set the X and Y coordinates to 1.75. Insert the paper until the blade is right at the top, this way the cut out was where I wanted it. Once all the sheets were cut to size and the designs cut out, I placed them on the score board - score at 1.5”, 4.5”, 6”, and 9”. Then turn the sheet and score at 1.5”. That last score is for the bottom of the bag... Cut each diagonal score line from the bottom up to the single horizontal score line and fold along your score lines. Cut a piece of glitter card stock just big enough to cover your design and glue it in place. Glue the side of the bag and the bottom (I used adhesive squares for the bottom, it was easier lol).
Next you’ll take the red glitter card stock and cut 1” strips that are at least 9” long and use either decorative scissors or a border punch on one side. Glue this around the top edge of the bag and crease at the corners. Hole punch 2 holes on each side of the bag and 2 more holes where the button will be ‘sewn’ on. Mischief cut out the tags and I stamped them...and LOOK! They turned out better this time! LOL Practice Practice Practice! :)
