Today's "not a card" is one of my favourite quick and easy packages to make. A little bit of Designer Series Paper, a stamp and a die cut or two and you're good to go!
We made smaller bags at class, but you could totally apply this principle to a larger bag. Then again, good things come in small packages, right??
You can purchase the bags at any big box craft store and they come in several different sizes. They're usually available in a "baker's dozen" (13 bags), so you should be able to design lots of different gift bags, depending on which DSP you choose.
The strips for this bag are 2", 1 ½" and 1" wide. You could adjust the length to suit your needs. They were punched using the Triple Banner Punch. This is a fabulous punch, because you can use it with three different widths of paper...so it's like getting three punches in one - BONUS!
The "Surprise!" is from the Tin of Tags stamp set. It was stamped in Real Red onto Whisper White Cardstock and cut out using the Big Shot and an oval die. It was adhered to a Real Red piece of Cardstock also cut out using a scalloped oval die and the Big Shot. You could use any stamp really. It doesn't even have to be a Christmas gift bag. It could be for any occasion throughout the year. Why not buy that baker's dozen of bags and create 13 different designs?
