Gift bag made with Stampin' Up designer paper and washi tape edging

When demonstrators attend the annual Convention they are showered with gifts from Stampin' Up! Of course we all get very excited about that but it's not all about receiving - it's always lovely to give gifts too. Come and see:

This little gift bag was made to house a little stamp set for the lovely Lizy Bartaby, one of my downline - do pop over to her blog and have a browse as she makes the most gorgeous things! I made the bag out of a sheet of the wonderful Backgrounds designer series paper stacks. Real Red and white with Crushed Curry accents would make anyone feel happy!

The tag was made quickly with the Angled Tag Topper punch and I decorated it with a scrap of the reverse of the DSP and some of the Beach House washi tape. The little badge is a fabulous stamp from the Amazing Birthday stamp set. I stamped it twice, cut the images out with circle punches and layered it up.

The top of the bag was edged with more washi tape and I tied it up with the lovely, white-edged Real Red taffeta ribbon. I like that you can see the contrasting dotty inside of the bag!

When my daughter and I met at Kings Cross Eurostar at the beginning of our journey to Brussels we stood in the middle of the concourse, hugging and chattering and laughing until we were disturbed by a beeping noise. We turned and discovered that we were blocking the way of a man on a ride-on with a string of bins behind him. "Oh look! It's our train!" said my daughter. "All aboard!"

It's Artisan Blog Hop day tomorrow so do make sure you come back here then - there'll be loads of inspiration from Stampin' Up Artisans from around the world!


  1. You still sound on a high from your Stampin' Up! convention, and lovely that your daughter was able to accompany you (poor hubby). Thanks for sharing your little gift bag with the washi tape - great idea to add it to the top edge of the bag - looks fabulous!

  2. Oh how wonderful this looks.

    Will pop over to see Lizy as I haven't visited her for a while.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  3. What a finish the washi tape makes, a great idea for a lot of things, now the idea has been let loose LOL.

  4. What a lovely gift you made for Liz

  5. Vicky it's absolutely adorable! I'll hop over to Lizy's now too :) xxx
