NEW! Textured Designer Paper

Bag1

First of all, I have to tell you how happy I am today…finish paperwork, CHECK!, assemble ten Rolodex kits ordered yesterday, CHECK!, prep for Tuesday's class, CHECK! Life is good!! So back to our regularly scheduled program…stamping! I was itchin' to use that beautiful new textured dsp on page 158 of your new SU! catalog, called Parisian Breeze Specialty…doesn't the name just make it sound wonderful????

I loved so many of the new dies for the Big Shot, however I couldn't order them ALL! So I figured I would give the little bag with scallops a shot on my own. I did want mine to be a little bigger than the one shown on page 194 though. I've been told so many times lately that the projects I make look SO much bigger on my blog than they do in real life, so for your reference, my bag is 4" high and 4" wide. Pretty small, but big enough for a decent amount of treats 🙂

I started with a piece of the textured ds 4" wide by 11" long, scored at 4", 6" and 10", leaving a 1" flap to adhere my scallop (or half of a scallop) to. For the scallop I used the scallops #2 die. Then I made my sides with pieces of cardstock 2-1/2 x 4", scored at 1/4" on 3 sides. The unscored side is the TOP of the side. Then the tricky part, making the indented sides. I scored a line right in the middle of the 2" part, but only about 2-1/2" long, starting at the top. Then I connected the corners to my score line creating a triangle. Then I folded the little 1/4" scored portions back and adhered them to the sides of the bag.

It's much easier than it sounds, and of course once I was almost done I thought I should have taken pictures as I went along…maybe another day. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Very nice Kerin! I have to ask, what are you doing with the Rolodexs? Will you post a picture after the class? I ordered that die and can’t wait to get my hands on it.
    Looking forward to the next meeting.

  2. I love the bag, now did you use the diecut or did you make your own template.
    Thanks for sharing. I love that paper, now that will be added to my list.
    Thanks
    Diana
