InKing Royalty’s November Blog Hop


So Grateful

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s November Blog Hop!  Today’s hop is filled with inspiring projects that share the gratefulness of the season.  Whether you are ready to celebrate Thanksgiving this week or just feel reflective of the things that make you thankful, we are sure you’ll find great inspiration from our talented team members.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll continue along the list at the base of this post.

How better to show your gratitude than with a gift? And what better way to present that gift than in a custom decorated gift bag?

The Petite Cafe Bags are perfect for so many things, including food items, and the roll down top prevents spilling. And it’s the only part of this project that wasn’t a scrap!

I cut a scrap of Into The Woods Designer Series Paper to 3″ x 7″ and another one to 1-1/4″ x 7″. I cut the notch in the end of the slender piece with the Banner Triple Punch. I adhered these two pieces to the bag with Fast Fuse. I cut a couple more scraps of the DSP with the 2″ Circle Punch.

On a scrap of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the sentiment from the A Little Something stamp set, coloring the stamp with Stampin’ Write Markers in Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Tangelo Twist, and Mossy Meadow (all colors in the paper.) Then I cut it with the 2″ Circle Punch.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere all the 2″ circles.

A piece of Into The Woods 3/8″ Cotton Ribbon tied around the top completes the look. 

Super duper quick and easy!

  1. Good morning Candy. Your treat bag is perfect and adorable! It is so simple and easy to replicate by using our DSP. I am so grateful to have met you. You have inspired me creatively and in my business. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. So smart! Decorating an adorable bag is a GREAT way to use up scraps – love the circles along the side and combination of patterns. Such a fun project. I’m glad you hopped along with us in this month’s InKing Royalty Blog Hop. Happy Thanksgiving, my friend.
