Awesomely Artistic Gift Bag!

I am loving the Awesomely Artistic stamp set so much that I can’t seem to find enough time to share my ideas with you… but I will MAKE the time to share a few more – starting with this Awesomely Artistic Gift Bag – before moving on to another stamp set.

Awesomely Artistic Gift Bag

This little gift bag was fun to make… and quick & easy, too!

Start with a half sheet of Mint Macaron card stock. (Mint Macaron is one of the 2015-2017 In Colors.) Follow the template below to score, fold and glue to form the gift bag. Stamp the floral image from Awesomely Artistic on Very Vanilla card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and sponge it with Mint Macaron and Melon Mambo inks using sponge daubers or wedges cut from the Stamping Sponges . Mat the stamped image on a piece of Basic Black card stock, then glue it to the front of the gift box. Pinch the top of the gift bags to crease the two side panels. Punch through all four layers using the 1/8″ handheld circle punch. Punch again through the center front and back. Add Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details to the floral image and set aside to dry. Thread Silver Baker’s Twine (or ribbon of your choosing) through the holes and tie in a bow.

Here is the scoring template for today’s featured Awesomely Artistic Gift Bag.

    Hi Bernie – thanks for the nice comment. It’s actually 4-3/4″ x 3-1/4″ because of the 3/4″ for the bottom of the box. Happy Stamping~ Maria

    Very pretty and super simple, Maria! Thanks for giving us the tutorial. I am sure someone will be inspired to make these because of the easy instructions. Is the finished size 5 1/2 x 3 1/4?

    How cute is this little gift bag. This would make cute little Thank You gift (s) for a Hostess or for her guests. Thanks for posting what you used to create these cuties.
    Love it!
    Thanks for the idea Maria.
    Have a great day.
