Welcome to day 7 of the YNS holiday release AND my project for this week's YNS ABC Challenge (see end of post for more details). Today is an exciting one as I’m sharing a little gift wrap/package that I made using the new winter stamp and die set. You can win your very own stamp and die set just by commenting on this post, all the other design team blogs and the YNS blog (visit YNS blog for a list of today's participants).
The finished package/pouch is approximately 4” x 6” and it would be perfect to hold a small gift or even a gift card. I plan on making a few more and wrapping up an ornament and gift card for each of my daughter’s day care teachers.
I took a white wedding treat bag (made by Wilton) and stamped the entire surface with the sentiment block stamp in red ink. Then I coloured the trees with a green Copic (just a tip but if you don’t want it to bleed through to the back of the bag, place a piece of cardstock inside to catch the leaks---let’s just say this one is a prototype LOL!). I then added two strips of scrap paper to the front of the bag and attached the tag with some baker’s twine. On the tag I used the tree stamp and cut it out with the coordinating die. No fussing around with the cutting---yeah!
Head on over to the YNS blog and check out all the samples that the design team created with the set and don’t forget about the early bird special going on right now J
Oh, and one more thing.....this week's YNS challenge (#54) is an ABC challenge -- anything but a card-- you can make tags, gift bags, scrapbook pages, decorate ornaments...anythings goes as long as it's not a card!
