Today I wanted to share with you a "goody bag" I made for a dear friend and downline today. It's the kind of goody bag I hope she'll love, not filled with candy, but filled with a few new stamping goodies! She hasn't been able to stamp in a while, you know how life just flies by sometimes, filled with errands, work, children and husbands to take care of…I don't even think she's got anything from the new mini catalog! Sooo, when I heard she is going to be making some time to stamp tomorrow morning, I packed up a few stamping treats and left this little bag at her door. I included a package of 6×6" sheets of every new dsp from the mini catalog (she looooves dsp…she's the person I give all of my retired dsp to!), the Scallop Trim Border Punch, and the Whimsical Words stamp set.
I'm sure you've seen bags like this before, you just create a box and then wrap it with designer paper…I just measured the items I'd be placing in the bag and made my box accordingly. The finished bag is about 6-1/2" wide and 6" high. The card stock for my box started at 6×9-1/2" and I scored in at 1-1/2" on all sides. My dsp sheets (2 of them) are 6 x 10-1/2". To form the border at the bottom I used 2 pieces of card stock each measuring 1-1/2 x 10-1/2". If you need any more info, just shoot me an email and I'll try to help!
