As well as the Stemma Paper , you will need:
Template for gift bag or Gift Bag from Shoppie
White Bazzill card
Corner rounder punch
2 white buttons
rub on greeting.
Cut 2 flowers of different sizes from the paper and glue using PVA onto some white card. Leave to dry.
On this next photo, you will see that I marked around the template where it needed cutting. However, I realised that I only had to cut 2 rectangles of paper to just inside the size of the template side, including to the top of the handles.
Using a corner rounder, punch the corners to fit the curve of the handles. Mark the position of the handle holes and carefully cut them out. It is far better to start of being conservative as you can cut more paper off, but not add any.
Cut 2 rectangles of paper to just inside the size of the template sides. Doodle around the edges of these plus the bag front and back pieces and stick into place on the template.
You can now stick the template together to form the gift bag.
Once the flowers are dry, cut them out. I left a little bit of the red showing rather than cut tightly to the black lines. As you cut the flowers, they will naturally curl to give the flower dimension and shape.
Stamp a flower that is a size between the 2 flowers you have cut out, stick onto white card in black ink and cut out.
Cut a strip of white card to make a tag and fold it so that one bit is longer than the other. Doodle around the edges.
Stick the flower onto the shorter side of the tag, add a button to the centre and punch a hole in the folded end.
Cut 4 pieces of white card to fit inside the front, back and side panels of the gift bag. Doodle around them.
Stick them into place and decorate the front and back pieces using 2 circles cut from the paper. Tie the tag to the handles so that it closes the bag.
I then made a card that matched using the same techniques and finished it off with the scallop punch border and a lot of doodling.
