"Thoughts of You" gift bag










Here's another gift bag that I've created. If you wish to create one for your personal use, email me for the template.
Here are the steps to it.
1) Trace the template down onto a pattern paper. (Tip: make sure the pattern paper is thick enough to create a sturdy gift bag for your gift)
2) Before you fold it up, make sure you attach a strip of ribbon through the top of the flap as the sling for your bag and cut another piece of paper to cover the area where you attach your ribbon in the inside.
3) Ink all the edges of the bag with distress ink and fold it up.
4) I've added a small piece of Velcro on the flap so that it can be close and open easily.
5) Stamp some flourishes on the flap and hand stitch a strip of lace on the edge of the flap.
6) Add a flower on the middle of the flap. I've also added a cut out stamped image underneath the flower. Use some liquid pearls to dress it up.Hand stitch a strip of lace on the edges of the flap. and later add the oval piece as above to it.
7) Stamp and heat embossed the word "Thoughts of You" using some gold embossing powder on a black card stock and mat it onto a piece of white card stock and ink the edges using vintage photo distress ink.
8) Lastly, cut out a tag from the same pattern paper and use some liquid pearls to embellish it too. Write your message on it and tie it to the sling of the gift bag.
Hope you all like my second version of gift bag which is a little more vintage look.
