Happy Valentine’s Day Eve!
Here is the third “You Plus Me” project we created at our BZBStampers Stamp Together that was designed by Meredith Nelson, one of the sweetest people I know! It features the the cool Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack. With these three projects you’ll pretty much use most of the stack of paper. I love this, I usually have loads of paper left in my “stash” that I hope to use later. Let’s just face it, I’m a DSP hoarder. Lol!!!
TO CREATE “THE BAG”: This adorable bags starts with a 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ sheet of DSP. Score the 4-1/2″ edge at 1″, then score the 6-1/2″ edge at 1″, 3″, 4″ and 6″. Fold and burnish all the score lines with a bone folder for nice crisp folds. Cut up 1″ to the 1″ score line along the 6-1/2″ edge at the the 1″, 3″, 4″ and 6″ score lines. Place adhesive along the 1/2″ flap and fold the opposite edge over lining up with the 1/2″ score line. This will create a rectangle shape. Next fold in the two 1″ x 1″ bottom flaps, then one of the 1″ x 2″ flaps, finally put a light amount of adhesive on the remaining flap and fold over so it secures over the opposite flap. (TIP: I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the side and bottom flaps) This is just the cutest mini bag that you can use for any number things. I really like it for a gift card and a couple pieces of candy. Super sweet! 😎
BAG TOPPINGS: This was so easy and, again, super cute. I LOVE IT! First, cut a 1″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Basic Black then fold in half. Clip that over the top of the bag with a Mini Metallic Silver Clothespin topped with a Red Glimmer Heart. Next on Whisper White stamp Be Mine from the fun You Plus Me stamp set in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and punch the Large Oval Punch. Layer that into a punched Red Glimmer Scallop Oval (with glue dots–a must). Then apply this to the bag with a couple Stampin’ Dimenionals. Finally, you can top this already perfect bag with a mini bow tied from Whisper White Baker’s Twine.
I hope you’ll give this super cute mini bag a try. If you have any questions feel fee to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope you a great Valentine’s Day Eve and weekend.
