Gift bags & boxes galore!

I've got a thing for gift bags & boxes at the moment, although I'm sure I spend more time admiring them on other people's blogs & collecting templates than actually making them myself! Not good!.... However, I have joined UStamp & have found a particular gift bag that is soooo easy to make & can be so easily adapted for any occasion that my production line has been running hot!! You can find out more about this and many other projects by joining UStamp.

For the first gift bag I have used berry bliss DSP, coordinated with pretty in pink & close to cocoa cardstock and ink. The grosgrain ribbon is the 5/8" chocolate chip. I loved using my crop-a-dile to punch & set the jumbo eyelets.....so so so easy..a real joy to use!!! The stamp set is big bold birthday embellished with dazzling diamonds (you'll have to take my word for it!)
Below is another of the gift bags I have made for Christmas using the holiday harmony DSP...(be sure to stock up on this before it is no longer available when the Spring mini catalogue finishes at the end of November). The stamp set is Season of Joy and the ribbon is satin Purely Pomegranate (both also in the mini catalogue!)

I will post my other gift box creation tomorrow,

Thanks for looking!

I know what you mean by spending so much time "admiring". I just wish I could spend MORE time "crafting" than "admiring".
