White stazon gift bag - Tutorial.

Another White stazon post? This is for those who like detailed instructions on how to recreate a project they have seen in the catalogue or in a magezine or for the curious...Here's what you need to make this project:
1x medium cellophane bag (This one is a stampin' up bag 10.2 x 15.2 cm)
Certainly cellery cardstock (10 x 15 cm)
Tangerine Tango Card stock (approx 10cm x 10.2cm)
Tangerine Classic Ink pad.
Cotton White Stazon Ink pad.
45cm Certainly celery poly twill ribbon.
Eyelet border punch and small Horizontal slot punch.
Stampset: Great friend.
Square Metal Edge tag. Cotton thread or twine.

1. Select your bag and place it on a flat, non slip surface. So that you can see your stamped images. You can place the piece of Certainly celery cardstock inside the bag.
2. Stamp random images on the cellophane bag - I have used the butterfly and the flower branch from the Great friend stampset. Its quite a solid stamp so ensure you ink pad is well inked and juicy.3. Fold the tangerine cardstock in half and then edge the top and bottom with the eyelet border punch.4. Folding the cardstock over the top of the bag, punch a horizontal slot through each of the layers: card and cellophane.5. Fill your bag with gifts, lollies, chocolates, ribbons and brads.
Thread the ribbon through the slots that you made in the cardstock and cellophane bag and tie a bow with the ribbon.6. To make your gift tag: Stamp the "for you" stamp on the metal edge tag and the flower (it can be a bit tricky). Then punch a small hole in the top of the aluminium square and tie it onto the ribbon with some crochet thread. I have used the certainly cellery new polly twill ribbon - it ties quite crisply and nicely I feel.
Here are the two gift bags I have made for the lucky blog reader winners who asked the questions on Stamping Joy's first birthday. I have sent them some samples of the new textured Parisian breeze Specialty paper, too.
