Festive Swirling Stars Craft Die Gift Bag

Today's blog post comes from designed team member Wenche Jensen


Our Die Team have been using the Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson Festive Swirling Stars in this weeks blog projects. Keep an eye out for the next installment this Saturday. 

Shopping list:
Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson Festive Swirling Star CED3056
Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson Festive Snowflakes CED3020
Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson Australian Collection Melbourne CED8105
Sentimentally Yours Timeless 8 x 8 Paper Pad SYTPPC
JustRite We Are Having a Baby Stamp Set JRCR-05008


Step 1. I've created a simple, small gift bag on the basis of a long, narrow paper bag, 'hot dog bag'.
In the bag I want to put a little candy roll and fold the length of the bag to fit this. On the back I attach a cord, which will be the fastener of the bag. 

Step 2. Now cover the paper bag with patterned paper. I do this equally on both sides of the bag. The sheet covers the cord too.

Step 3. The CED3056 Festive Collection Swirling Stars cuts in a long strip and can be cut to create smaller star swirls.

Step 4. Now assemble the die cuts as you wish, i have also added a snowflake from the Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson Festive Snowflakes Die set and used a sentiment from the JustRite We Are Having a Baby Stamp Set.

 Place your contents in your bag and tie closed.
