So, while away on my trip, I tried posting the pictures from last week. Unfortunately, my internet connection was apparently not good enough to make that happen, so I wanted to get out a quick post this morning.
Like I said last week, we had a great time getting ready for the holidays by making gift packaging. I posted most of the items we made, but I didn’t get a chance to post the final two items.
This bag was one I first saw my mom do and I thought it would be perfect for holding gift cards. It is super simple to do; so I thought it would be a good addition to the class. All you do to make it is cut a piece of 3×6.5″ cardstock, scoring at 5″. Use the scallop punch to edge of the flap of the main cardstock. Using sticky tape, adhere a 3×5″ cello bag to the 3×5 section of cardstock. Punch holes through the main cardstock and cello bag (one on each side) about halfway between the 5″ score line and the end of the flap – don’t punch through the flap itself. Run ribbon from the back of the holder, through the holes, and then use to tie the flap down.
Then, while waiting for the ladies to show, I decided I wanted to play with my new designer label punch and some hardware from the Hodgepodge Hardware kit. So, I created a box with a band that would hold a designer label hardware piece. Since it was based on the pizza box style boxes, it was super fast. I just wish I had stamped the main cardstock instead of just the band.
