Valentine's Day Gift Bag!

Hello Everyone!  Debbie here today to show you how I made this wonderful Valentine's Day gift bag that I decorated with a tissue paper flower!


To make this tissue paper flower, the first thing I did was to stamp the Trailing Hearts stamp all over the tissue paper using Rhubarb Stalk Memento Ink Pad.


Then I folded my tissue paper so it was alittle bigger than the die template.  I had at least 10 layers by the time I got it this size. Here I used Blossom Five - die #4 (remember die #1 is the smallest).  Here is what it looked like....

I cut/embossed the tissue paper using my Grand Calibur.  Here is the tissue paper still in the die.
 

Then I folded the flower in half and then in half again and punched a hole for a brad in the middle.

I added a brad to hold all the layers together....it doesn't have to be a pretty brad because it probably won't be seen since the flower's layers will hide it.

Gather each layer and scrunch it to the middle --  like this......

Then you can fluff the layers so that your flower will look how you want it to look!!


Now to complete my gift bag, I needed to make alittle tag to hang on it.  I first stamped the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment onto a sheet of white cardstock.  Then I positioned the Classic Squares Nestabilities over the sentiment and used a piece of removable tape to hold the die in place.  As you can see in the photo, this is the type of removable tape I always use.
 

Then I finished up everything.  Here are a few close-ups!
 


I am going to put a few treats into this bag for my youngest daughter's teacher!  I think she will really like this cute bag plus she will love the chocolates I am going to put in there!!  LOL
