SOG Customer Blog Hop *Gift*

IMG_3860

Hello, hello! For one of the categories of SOG's 2nd Annual Customer Blog Hop, we were to make a gift card holder or gift bag.



I decided to make a gift bag and challenge myself. Because I sometimes don't have a lot of time and sometimes craft in 'shifts,' I tend to stay away from projects that take too long to do. Surprisingly, this multi-dimensional paper project was fairly easy and fast. And isn't it super cute and functional? I first saw this gift bag at Janet's blog. The actual instructions could be found here.

I used a 12 x 12 double-sided patterned paper from Graphic 45. This brand is absolutely classic and retro, and I wanted to use something different for Deer Mae.

Anyway, the inside will show when the recipient opens it so it's nice to use DP. Plus, it's thinner than card stock so it'll be easier to fold and score.

I added chocolates in there, and tied it with Twine to stay closed. You can also use a velcro closure. I, then, decorated a strip of paper with the stamped image and some stickers from Bo Bunny to finish the front.

Hope you're all having a blast at the blog hop! Hope you enjoy all the different projects and styles! I find it truly inspiring!
