Gift Bag, Tag and Card Set

I like dressing up plain gift bags and making coordinating tags and cards! It makes for an extra special way to present gifts, don’t you think?

Hey there! Today I'm sharing my latest DT project for CutCardStock.

My set was created with a bag I had sitting around the house, fabulous card stocks, stamps, dies and a little coloring.

Getting Started

Start by choosing what you would like to use as focals and coordinating card stock.

I chose a stamp set with coneflowers from Crafter’s Companion and black ink.

Cougar White Smooth CardStock

Stardream Metallic GOLD 105 lb Cardstock

DCS Discount Black Card Stock

A purchased plain black gift bag

Flowers and leaves were stamped onto the white card stock and colored with various markers.

Base Pieces

Next, I cut my card stock pieces. 

For the bag gold was cut to 6 x 6 inches, black 5 x 5 inches, white 4 7/8 x 4 7/8 inches.

A 5 x 6 1/2 inch black card base was created by folding a 10 x 6 1/2 inch piece of card stock in half along the 10 inch side. Gold was cut to 4 1/2 x 6 inches. Cut a piece of black to 4 x 5 1/2 inches and white to 3 7/8 x 5 3/8 inches.

The tag is comprised of a gold base 2 1/2 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches long. I punched the top edge with a tag punch and rounded the lower corners. A piece of white was cut 2 1/2 x 3 inches. Two pieces of black were cut to 2 1/2 x 1/2 inches.

Adhere the pieces for the bag, card and tag as shown in photo below.

Finishing Up

Die cut sentiments for each of the three pieces. Fussy cut the flowers and leaves.

Adhere the flowers and leaves to each piece.

Complete by adding sentiments and any other items to embellish. I stamped dragonflies to the bag piece and added gems to the card.

Adhere the base pieces to the bag and card. Attach the tag to the bag with twine.

I hope you have enjoyed my gift bag, tag and card set and provided a little inspiration.
