Spotty Teeny Treats Bag

Hello Lovelies!

Here is last weeks class project - I have called it my spotty teeny treats bag!
You can fit so much inside!

I'm really happy with this bag as I have lost my 'mojo' since coming back after surgery. I have been struggling to design things or get the designs out of my head and onto paper. This was a happy accident idea! The great thing is it's quick once you've made a couple and you can store them flat if you're making them in advance for a party or something.

My design for class

Class projects

I made a very simple bag that can hold tea light candles, jewellery, money, gift card/voucher, tickets to a show, baby booties, sweets, tea bags, anything!

  • The DSP I used has now retired so I have linked to the closest match in the current annual catalogue. Remember that now is the perfect time to try this project as it's sale-a-bration so you can earn free stuff!!!!
  • So the paper I used was cut to 10 inches long (25.5cm) and 4 inches wide (10cm). 
  • I then followed the instructions on the front of the Stampin' Up! gift bag punch board. 
  • I used the blossom bunch punch to cut out some whisper white flowers 
  • I put some candy dots in the middle of them after popping them up
  • To pop up my flowers I simply use the back of a pen or paper piercer and push into the flower with some foam/sponge underneath. You can also use the palm of your hand. See below for a demonstration of this in my video.
  • Stamped my sentiment and punched it out with the decorative label punch 
  • I added it onto the front with dimensionals
  • The flowers I stuck on with glue dots
  • I used thick bakers twine to tie a bow on the bag

Here is a link to convert the measurements into whatever you require:

Hi Gang! 

So it's sale-a-bration time! (Well it has been since beginning of January but I'm just getting back to work). With every £45 spend you make from the annual catalogue, spring/summer catalogue or sales rack you earn a free product of your choice from the sale-a-bration catalogue. Stampin' Up! Have also released some more goodies as well! This promotion runs until march 31st.  The spring/summer catalogue runs until the end of May.

Also remember this years annual catalogue runs out this summer so if there's anything you can't live without (which for me is everything in every catalogue) then now is a great time to buy them and earn freebies!  Plus! If that wasn't good enough, they are running an amazing joining offer until the end of march! If you order the usual starter kit for £99 you will get the normal £130 worth of products. You choose all the products as well. Then Stampin' Up! Will give you 2 free Stamp sets on top of that!

Once your a demo you get a discount on products and can earn even more goodies!  So can I get a hell yes! They have to be one of the best companies ever! (I know I'm biased). Much better deals than the local craft shops in my area. 

So if you'd like any catalogues drop me an email and I'll get them posted to you. I can recruit and sell in the following 5 countries:  Austria, Germany, France, UK and the Netherlands.

Lots of love
