Summer Gift Bag
I needed a gift bag for a prize at one of my recent events and I could not find anything that would really fit what I was giving away (one of the Mini Note Kits in the Under $10 section of the catalog). So I said to myself WWOSD? (What would other stampers do?) and my answer was, make something to fit around it! So I took the Mini Note Kit and put it on a piece of this beautiful retired Summer Picnic DSP and measured around it so that I could use one piece of paper and I scored around the edges so I basically wrapped the Mini Note Kit in the paper and left the top open, so you could take it out. I added two holes to the top and tied some Real Red 1/2" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon through the holes. For a little extra I added a flower from the pretties kit, and took the large Real Red button from the Playground designer buttons with some White 1/4" grosgrain ribbon through it for the center of the pretties button. Very simple and it was a huge hit!
If you haven't seen these Mini Note Kits, you need to look at them (sorry I don't have a picture, but I gave it away!) You can find them on page 208 of the current Idea Book & Catalog. They come with a couple of small stamps, note cards and a classic stampin' spot for ONLY $9.95! This is a perfect gift for anyone!!!
