November 2021 IRBHs

Welcome to the November 2021 IRBH! This month’s theme is Pretty Packages & Tags, and we’re featuring Christmas gift packaging. I used the All Dressed Up Dies with the Merry Snowflakes Bundle (Merry Snowflakes stamp set and Stitched Snowflakes Dies) and the Whimsy & Wonder designer Series paper to create a cute little bag that can hold any number of small gifts.

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Stamped with the Merry Snowflakes stamp set:

  • snowflake in Polished Pink ink onto the front of the purse

Cut using the All Dressed Up Dies:

  • 2 pieces of Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper (DSP) for the body of the purse (green)
  • 1 piece of Whimsy & Wonder DSP using the same die (pink)
  • 2 straps cut from the pink DSP
  • latch cut from a scrap of Mint Macaron card stock (CS)
  • 4 buckle pieces cut from a scrap of Silver Foil paper

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • trimmed down the pink DSP purse half to about 1/4″ smaller on each side than the green purse

Cut using the Stitched Snowflakes Dies:

  • snowflake out of the center of the pink DSP front piece

Assembled the bag:

  • burnished the folds in the bag with a Bone Folder
  • glued the tabs of each half of the purse onto the inside of the other half
  • bottom tabs glued together to form the bottom of the purse
  • pink straps threaded through silver buckles and glued onto the purse, one strap on the front and one on the back
  • pink DSP glued onto the front of the purse so that stamped snowflake shows through the die cut hole
  • Polished Pink gem applied onto the center of the snowflake using my Take Your Pick tool
  • tiny magnets adhered onto the latch and the inside of the purse using Mini Glue Dots…
