The Art With Heart Team are back with another inspirational Blog Hop.
This month we are featuring Gift Bags and Boxes, just in time for the Christmas gift giving season. The bags and boxes featured are all made using current Stampin’ Up! products and any of our wonderful team members are happy to help you with the supplies you will need to reproduce these beautiful projects.
The project I’ve made for you tonight is a beach bag with matching card featuring brand new products from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! January -June 2020 Mini Catalogue — it used to be called the Occasions Catalogue.
You can order from this catalogue on the 3rd January 2020 but if you can’t wait until then to get your hands on these goodies, contact me about becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator so you can order them now.
My first step in making my beach bag was to emboss the Crumb Cake card stock using a new embossing folder called the Coastal Weave embossing folder. I embossed 2 pieces of card stock to make my basket. Here’s a closer look at this gorgeous basket weave effect.
I then die cut out 2 pieces using the largest die from the All Dressed Up Dies. These dies are so cute – they come in a bundle with the Dressed to Impress stamp set and there are shapes for shoes, perfume, lipstick, flowers…and everything you need to make a bag, including buttons, buckles and a strap.
You can see in the photo below that the dies on the bottom left are all stitched, which I love!
Joining the two sides of the basket together is very simple and easy using tear and tape, and then the fun begins with decorating the basket.
Instead of using the die for the basket straps I made my own straps by using the new 5/16 (8mm) Braided Burlap Trim. Attaching it is once again very simple, using tear and tape.
I’ve also added some new Best Dressed Tassels in Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock and Whisper White – aren’t they simply divine! If you want to add these tassels, don’t forget to thread them onto your length of trim before you adhere it to the bag.
My matching card uses materials from the Tropical Oasis Suite, including the “Aloha” die from the In the Tropics Dies, the frangipani flower from the Timeless Tropical stamp set and its matching die from the In the Tropics Dies.
The floral card stock is from the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack. I’m so in love with all these products!!!
I have a very special person in mind for my gift bag with matching card and I just know she will love this suite as much as I do!
