I have such a busy day ahead, I have like 3 projects that I need to make and 2 different swaps to make! One is for 11 and the other is for 50, that’s that’s only… what, 64 projects and 5 videos to make. Yeah so not much to be doing at all! Don’t get me wrong, I love it so much and I know you all do as well.
So today’s project is 3D again, fun right? This was actually anything project for my Coffee and a Card class. To appease everyone I wanted to try and do a non Halloween project. So of course I choose Christmas, makes sense right? This was actually inspired by my upline who sent me a little gift in the post inside one of the Treat bags. It was received in one of these bags which are adorable and I knew I could do something a little something else with it.
This is a fidly task I do not lie to you and you want it to look perfect upon completion, which is difficult. I scored at 1 inch along each side and across the bottom, you want to make sure that these are folded as crisply as possible as it’ll help in the ‘puffing out’ of the bag. As I said this can be fiddly but if your folds are crop it is easier. You will want to box off the sides before attempting to flatten bottom. You will notice you’ll have two triangle flaps sticking out, you’ll want to flap these under and stick these down. I would highly recommend multipurpose liquid glue for this but in the example below I did use snail just for speed.
The decoration of the bag is complete up to you and I would love to see what you design. I used a Snowflake die from the Snowflake Thinlits. This is one item available it a month long promotion in November, these have quickly become a staple in my crafting collection. These dies will be available for £36.00 for 20 dies. That’s a bargain if you ask me! These are available from the 1st November.
I used the Merry Christmas from the Warm Hearted Stamp Set alongside the Everyday Label Punch for the sentiment. This was all attached with the gold thread from the Annual Catalogue which just works perfectly with these bags.
See you around!
