Birthday Gift Bag
Recently bought the Our Daily Bread Designs Card Caddy and Gift Bag Bundle. Needed to make a birthday gift bag so wanted to use this new die set. Here is the bag I made:
Used Stampin Up Pink Pirouette card stock for the bag back, sides, front, and handles on my bag. As with other detailed dies I use the Cheery Lynn metal shim to cut out the bag front with all the details. With the back, sides, and front of the bag pieces cut out I used a bone folder to crease the scored lines the die made. Then used 1/8" red sticky tape to put the bag pieces together. Put the handles on the bag using glue dots and punched out a small pink circle to put over the back of the handles to cover the glue dots that showed on the inside of the bag through the front cut out piece.
The "Happy Birthday" circle:
This die was a free die with one of my British card making magazines and I cut that out of a scrap piece of darker pink card stock. With that cut out I put a lighter pink circle behind it and used larger glue dot to put that on the handle on the bag front. Easy bag to put together and as with the other Our Daily Bread Designs dies this die set cut the card stock easily. TFL
