How can it already be March 26th...I feel like this month has gone by so quickly! And it's even more shocking to me how much our lives have changed since last March! I am excited that things seem to be moving along nicely lately. And with that said I am also excited to share with a fun Monochromatic Project for the March Stampin Friends Blog Hop.
I hop you joined me from Heidi Collin's Blog and after viewing mine, be sure to continue on to Melissa Thomas's Blog. And if you get lost along the way, there is a list of hoppers at the end of the blog. And please welcome Kirsty Pattrick to the hop this month!!! We are excited to have her join us. I hop you check out her projects!!
I chose my favorite colors to make my projects. I used Old Olive with a mix of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.
Lets start with the Mini Gift bag. It so easy to make. You will need a piece of card stock or DSP that measures 6x9. If you choose a patterned paper that has a directional pattern, be sure to make sure the paper is in the right position before you begin scoring. You can refer to my video below to see what I mean.
Using your SImply Scored Score Bored, with the 9" side at the top, score at 1/2, 3 1/2, 4 3/4 and 7 3/4
Turn to the 6" side and score at 1 1/4 and 4 3/4.
Fold and burnish your score lines. You will have 2 scores lines at the top and at the bottom that are 1 1/4 wide choose what will be the top of the bag and what is the bottom. The top, fold on the score line, opposite, so the fold is on the ouside of the bag and the reverse pattern is visible.
On the bottom, remove that 1/2" bit up to the 1 1/4 score line. Then cut up to that score line for the others. Adhere the top fold down. Add adhesive to the remaining 1/2 side and fold to meet the opposite edge. Fold the bottom flaps in to create the bag.
I deocrated the front by stamping the images with the Forver Fern Stamp Set, using Old Olive, and then cutting out with the coordintating dies. I stamped the greeting on a 1 1/2 circle. Finished with a Old Olive bow.
Such a perfect little bag for a gift card, some candy or treats! Whatever you need!!!!
I used dimensionals to assemble the first layer, on Basic White I stamped the greeting and image from the Forever Fern Stamp set in Old Olive. I then added each strip, with Stampin Seal, from left to right, adding the smallest strip to the largest. I added the Basic White layer using dimensionals. I added some rhinsetones that I colored using the Stampin Blends Dark Old Olive marker.
For the card with the DSP, I added the ribbon around the Basic White layer and finished it in a bow, before adhering it to the card.
I have created this video for you to refer to while making the bag and card. I have also added a bonus mini card!
I hope you enjoyed my projects. I had lots of fun designing them for you!
