Wow, where did August go? September 1 today and time for a new Stampsmith Challenge! The new theme for the month of September is:
Bags and Tags (with one Stampsmith stamp)
For my Design Team project, I made a gift bag and a matching card with a tag as the focal point. I used a stamp from the "Shall We Dance" Full Sheet and the Sentiment Full Sheet-Say It Like It Is.
My gift bag started life as a ordinary brown paper lunch bag.
To make the bag, trim the top edge down about four inches. Add a strip of black CS to the top edge and punch with an edge punch. Add a piece of decorative paper (the black lace paper) to the middle of the bag. And, a piece of black CS with one edge punched to the bottom of the bag. I did not glue the very top edge of this piece so that the bag could be folded flat if necessary.
Stamp the dancing girls on glossy white CS with black dye ink. Cut with a Sizzix die---Make two--one for the bag and one for the card. Glue to the bag.
Stamp the sentiments; cut out and glue to bag. Punch one hole on the side of the bag near the top through all layers. Run the ribbon through this hole and tie in a bow.
Make the card in the same manner.
Let's see what you come up with!! Link your project up on the Stampsmith Challenge blog for a chance to win a $21 gift certificate!
