So this is one of the beautiful sheets of Floral Boutique DSP. I really do like this paper and can see it being my ‘go to’ paper for many of my projects.
This little bag actually only measures 8.5″ x 3.5″ and is only half an inch deep! Half an inch I hear you say? Yes, that’s because it was designed to fit a cheeky little gift inside.
To make this bag you will need DSP measuring 8.5″ x 8.5″. With your flowers (or pattern) going upwards, score at 3.5, 4, 7.5 and 8″. Rotate and score at 0.5″. Fold and Burnish your score lines. Cut your bottom tabs, run adhesive down the long thin tab and seal the bag. Fold up the base flaps and adhere.
The embellishment is the image from Floral Phrases, stamped in Night of Navy, stamped off first. I added three Rhinestone Jewels to the bottom and punched holes at the top with the 1/8″ handheld punch before adding Night of Navy and Whisper White Bakers Twine. A gold binder clip was used to clip the image to the top and hold the bag closed.
This is the cheeky little gift I added inside. A door hanger for the newlyweds? I couldn’t resist making this.
I used thick Whisper White for the door hanger and the 1.75″ circle punch at the top for the hanger part. I rounded the edges with my paper snips.
I used the Floral Phrases and Night of Navy but stamped off the image again as I felt the colour was too heavy for the delicate image.
‘Love is in the air’ is from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and the hearts are from Perpetual Birthday Calendar in Real Red, again stamped off.
To finish off I added some more Night of Navy and Whisper White Twine to the bottom.
I think any newlywed would find this amusing and useful ?
