Welcome back to the Cropstop blog. It’s time for another guest design post and today our guest designer is one of my sweet blogging friends, Connie Griffin of Connie’s Crafty Creations. Connie is sharing two projects with us showcasing the Gift Bag Punch Board! She also included a great tutorial so without further ado, let’s get to it….
“Hi, Connie here with you today to show you some cute bags made with the We R memory keepers gift bag punch board! I am showing it in two different sizes to give you an idea of the different sizes you can achieve with this but there are many different sizes you can make depending on the size you cut your paper.
I wanted to show you that they have great picture instructions as long as a description on how to scor and punch your paper to make these bags, and they even come with their own score tool that stores right in the base so you won’t lose it.
The tall bag started as a 12×12 inch piece of paper and the smaller one started as a 11×6 inch piece of paper. I am showing in this picture the different ways you can add holes to the bags. The tall bag I used the punch board that has a whole punch on it and created hole punches all around, that way I can add my ribbon all the way through to keep the bag tied shut tight. The little bag I used my Crop a dile to add my own holes to add the ribbon.
Here they are both finished with their tags, I love the different sizes you can make depending on the size gift. I used more heavy duty paper for the taller bag and a thinner paper on the smaller bag.
Here is a close up of the tag on the taller bag. I cut the sentiment die twice, using my cuttlebug and plates, glued them together for more bulk and added glossy accents to make it stand out a bit and used Dusty concord Stickles to dot the i. I love my craft mat for blending inks as I did on the tags also, while my paper is still inside the die.
Here I wanted to show that I made the holes too big for the size ribbon I used so I applied the ribbon to the inside of the bag with my scor tape and then with scor tape again I added strips of paper to the inside to cover my ribbon ends, but if you do the holes smaller you can just tie the ribbon ends on the inside of the bag.
