For the holidays I make a lot of cards. Whether they are cards I send out, cards a friends or coworker asks me to make or cards I sell in my Etsy shop, I make a lot of cards from September to December. What I don't make enough of is packaging. I never seem to make the cute tags or adorable bags I have the supplies for. Well recently I fell in love with The Stamp Market and they sell quite a few products that made me want to make the cute things I never do and so I bring you my first blog features, Tags and Bags.
This week is all about bags. Well packaging that looks like a bag.
Next up, is something a little different, because I didn't use anything from The Stamp Market making it. HA
In early November I saw the new release coming for Reverse Confetti and I knew I needed the Scalloped Bag & Tags die. Truthfully I had a grand idea that I was going to make a bunch for my work holiday party, but that didn't happen. Instead I created just the one using it and the Winter Solstice 6x6 paper pad that I am OBSESSED with!
Once the bag was cut I decided on the width of the bottom and scored it before I cut a hole in the front and added acetate to create a window. The window really makes this design in my opinion. It adds a more professional like look to it.
With the window done and the bag assembled I need a tag. I die cut a round one out of white glitter paper and then stamped one of the Christmas Circles with Altenew ink from the Cherry Blossom mini set, Pinkalicious (are you tired of me using the color yet?). After the stamped image was cut I glued it to the tag. To add a little something extra I added a Papertrey Ink's Snowfall Style 2 die and tied it up with a pink ribbon from my stash.
I love the color scheme and look of this one a lot. Maybe next year I will actually be able to make them for my work party, Time will tell.
What is your go to color combination?
Stay tuned tomorrow for bag 3.
