Gift bags for brides to be!


    It's wedding season here in Florida. Summer is about 100F in Florida so most weddings here occur fall through spring. Tis the season for cute gift bags. This particular bag did include some Stampin' Up! goodies for bride to be Lianne. Lianne and I bonded over our love for paper crafting last summer and have had crafting dates ever since.

"I'm pretty sure real romance means that I do crafts and watch TV on my phone while Dustin plays video games... or, if that's not romance its a nice way for me to be introverted and hang out with him at the same time...."~ Lianne

    Lianne actually had a mini card class going during her bridal shower. She made step by step direction boards to make two cards.  For one of the cards, her guests made their own thank you card and addressed the envelope so it could be sent back to them once she writes a sweet note inside. Genius right!! Seriously, even though she just started stamping, Lianne should be demonstrator lol! Of course she made her own wedding invites and favors.

    For Lianne's gift bag, I used the retired color of Crisp Cantaloupe (Dear Stampin' Up! please bring this color back!!!), but you can use any pretty color. I made the flowers using the Spiral Flower die. To make the flower bigger, I doubled up the flower pattern. Next, I use a circle punch to cut out leaves. On my bag, I used the Happy Script framelit by Mama Elephant. Stampin' Up! also has a cute "happy" framelit within the Hello You framelits set.

Here is the Stampin' Up! You Tube on how to use the Spiral Flower die with the Big Shot.
