Oh, soo much exciting stuff to share! Where oh where, do I start??
Well, I said I’d share how I made this adorable gift bag at my Card Buffet this past weekend.
Looking at him closely now, its pretty easy to see ‘how’ he was made.
Let’s start by gathering all the stuff you will need to complete him.
I used a smaller gift bag, If I recall, its 5 x 7 x 3.
I cut one Top Note out of Gumball Green. Cut in half, lengthwise. One of the halves, emboss with the Chevron Embossing Folder. The other Top Note half, cut in half again for the ‘shoes’.
For the shoes, I used two circle punches on the feet, the 1 3/8″ and the 3/4″. See my pattern below, it’s blue. To make the scallop socks, first, punch a 1 1/4″ circle, then punch the 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle out around that. I snipped off three scallops for each leg. (Note, you can get two pair of socks out of one scalloped circle!)
The balls on the shoes are 1/2″ Circles from Red Glimmer Paper.
The legs are the Real Red paper from Polka Dot Parade DSP Pack. It is the perfect pattern for these legs. I played around with a few. Legs are 3/4 x 6 each.
The tag says it all. The stamp set is from the Holiday Mini, Merry Little Christmas. I used a marker for the words and omitted the ‘s’ in self. I just scallop punched it afterwards and layered it with the Gumball Green and Real Red Circles. I did not show this, but my ribbon is in between the circle layers. Looks more finished. And, this way, you can write in the back of your tags!
Ok, assembly of this gem.
Start by using two Dimensionals on the shoes. Place them at the bottom of the bag. Add a little SNAIL to each legs at the top and bottom. Insert leg in shoe and secure. Same with other leg. I moved them apart for character. Adhere Top Note with Sticky Strip or Tombow Green Glue. Covering top of legs. Add Glimmer balls to shoes. Add ‘socks’, I used Tombow Green Glue so they could be moved around for coverage. Then add the tag. Done!
That is just so cute. Did you case that from Istampedthat.com? I love it!
Thanks for stopping and leaving a comment! I got my idea from my upline. We did this at her meeting. So, I decided to pass it along on my Card Buffet. I had not really looked at making these bags because I didn’t care for the proportions. I liked the thinner legs and the stamped greeting of the bag I made. I do give credit to those I case from- it’s the right thing to do. : )
