I am so excited the Annual Catalog is live! Have you seen it? It's filled was some exciting goodies. My wish list keeps growing. If you have not received a new catalog and would like one, please contact me and I will gladly mail you a complimentary copy!
Today I decided to finally try the Gift Bag Punch Board. I ordered this during the demonstrators catalog pre-order and haven't had a chance to play. That is until today!!!
You can make 3 size gift bags; small, medium and large. These sizes determine the width of the bag. You can choose the height of the bag. The depth (front to back) will remain the same for each size. Click here to see a Stampin' Up! video demonstrating the Gift Bag Punch Board.
I used the new Bohemian Designer Series Paper for all the bags and Perfect Pennants Stamp Set on most.
The 2 bags in the back row, from left, are Large they are both 6 inches tall by 3 3/4 wide by 2 deep. The bag in the back row to the right is Medium. This bag is 7 inches tall by 3 1/4 wide by 2 deep.
In the Middle row, left, is another Medium bag. That bag is 5 inches tall by 3 1/4 wide by 2 deep. The other 2 bags, to the right and front are both the Small. The Small bag in the middle is 5 inches tall by 2 3/4 wide by 2 and the front is the same except that one is 4 inches tall.
I used 3 pieces of the designers series paper to make all the bags. I was able to get 2 of large from 1 sheet, 2 medium from 1 sheet and 2 small from 1 sheet. Had I cut the small bags height to all be 4 inches, I would have been able to make 3 bags from 1 sheet of DSP.
They were so fun to make and super easy! The best part is you now have a tool to make your own beautiful gift bag, even if it's last minute, rather than running to a store!!
Thanks for stopping by.
