Yesterday, I held a class on making a Gift Bag with 5 matching cards & envelopes. Fantastic idea for a gift or even for yourself – then you have some cards handy to send out. My lovely customers loved the idea & thought it was very simple to make. I even had a brand new stamper (conned my walking buddy to join in) – I think she may be hooked.
Each of my customer’s were given a pack consisting of Designer Series Paper, Cardstock, Ribbon, Brads, Twine & Jumbo Eyelets – all co-ordinating colours.
Below is a photo of one of the outcomes. This customer generally doesn’t use bright colours – she is mainly an Old Olive or Earth Elements person, so I gave her something different to work with.
Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Summer Sun & Whisper White
Stamp Sets: Organic Grace (Level 1 Hostess), Butterfly Prints (Summer Mini), Priceless, Sincere Salutations & Fifth Avenue Floral (there are others, but I can’t quite see what she used)
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Summer Sun & Yoyo Yellow
Other: Pink Flamingo DSP, Tempting Turquoise Grosgrain Ribbon, Corner Rounder, Circle Punches, Scallop Edge Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, jumbo eyelets, brown paper bag (non-SU!) & Bold Bright Brads
I think she did an outstanding job – don’t you agree??
