Ever just need a little simple gift to give/exchange during the holidays? This clear transparent gift bag holding 10 chocolate squares is a hit! Great for teachers, co-workers, mailman, UPS, and a fellow stamper girl who live close by to me *wink*. I discovered this cute creation on Lauren Meader’s Blog… My Time, My Creations, My Stampendence. Click –> here to see her creation with the template. Needless to say, I ran out to the store the very next day to buy all items needed to make this.
How cute right?
I stamped the Acetate with an assortment of SU! snowflakes in Stazon Opaque White ink (drying time is extremely quick). Used Scor-Pal to create all of the scoring lines. I used Sticky Strip to hold together (can hardly see). Filled with an assortment of 10 different chocolate squares. Punched two 3/16″ holes in the top and closed with Purely Pomegranate Satin Ribbon.
Here is an upclose pic of the tag:
I first stamped the sentiment with Certainly Celery ink on Whisper White CS. Used Coluzzle to cut out the circle. Next, used Coluzzle again to a piece of Soft Sky Prints DSP and used 3/16″ Corner Rounder Punch to create the scalloping (the scallops didn’t meet up perfectly, so the meeting place is hidden behind the poinsettia). I had to add Purely Pomegranate to the main image tag due to the ribbon, so added the flower. But I also wanted to incorporate more Acetate so I used my Scallop Punch & Acetate, sponged edges of the scalloped Acetate piece with Stazon Opaque White ink, and placed this piece over the poinsettia. Added 3 Silver Brads and adhered with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Added a touch of Baby Blue Stickles to some of the details of the stamped sentiment. Punched a 1/16″ circle to top and attached to Satin Ribbon with Silver Elastic Cord.
