Gift Bag Template

A few days ago I spoke about getting some template stamps from Inky Antics at the stamp show I attended. These are just so fun to make and they come out really cute. Today I used the gift bag stamp - template to make a little bag to hold a gift card for my step-daughter for her birthday next week.





Here is a front view of the bag. I used all Papertrey Ink products on it. I love the combination of Raspberry Fizz and Summer Sunrise paper and ink. The stamp sets used are Everyday Classics, Borders - Circles and the sentiment is from last years free gift set, Simple Little Things.









Here is a side view so you can get an idea of what the assembled template looks like. It's basically a little lunch bag with a flap over the top. Of course, you have the choice to use the flap or cut it off. In this case, I kept the flap, punched two holes and fed my ribbon through to tie the bow.

Here is a picture of the actual stamp. Thought this my give you a better idea of what they look like.

Thanks for taking a peek.

What a great idea! Your bag turned out so cute. I never would've paired Summer Sunrise with Raspberry Fizz, but they look wonderful together. Great job.
