It’s In the Bag

Favorably Simple Gift Bag - New Amazing Paper Grace die at Spellbinders -
Good morning sweeties!  Popping in today to share another of the make and takes I did at CHA.  I so wanted a gift bag because every holiday at the stamp club I belong to, we shower each other with gifts.  We have a group of twelve and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve purchased plain ole white gift bags to throw some goodies and trinkets in.  I designed the ‘Favorably Simple Gift Bag’ for those sorts of occasions and it’s the perfect favor bag for a wedding.  As you know, when folks come to stay at my house I like to have handmade trinkets for turndown service, left in their room each night and this is going to be the perfect addition to my stash.

Favorably Simple Gift Bag - New Amazing Paper Grace die at Spellbinders -
Here’s a look from the backside and you can see the little box inside :-)

Favorably Simple Gift Bag - New Amazing Paper Grace die at Spellbinders -
Completed box is 4-1/8″ wide, 1-3/8″ deep and 4-7/8″ tall.

Teeny Tiny Design Note 1 – The flaps on the bag fold down and close with ribbon.  Another option is that there is a disc die that will let you brad down two discs – one on the body with string anchored there and one on the flap so that you can wind the string between the two discs for closure.  The teeny tiny tag is something I’ve wanted to include in a set for a long, long time!!  It’s enough to accommodate small words like For You, Happy Birthday, etc…

Teeny Tiny Design Note 2 – the mechanism that attaches to make the box closure inside the bag is way cool!  You can take that mechanism and sandwich it between any two dies that are larger (imagine a tea cup, an animal, a decorative square) and voila – it becomes a box with a closure.

I would even be happy to be a member of your stamp club. It would be so much fun.ReplyCancel

  • Jeannine SavardJanuary 30, 2016 - 8:35 pm

    Absolutely gorgeous. Your entire wedding ensemble display at CHA was the first thing I saw that was just stunning and eye catching. And now that I am seeing each piece up close, I am truly amazed at how beautiful every aspect of this collection is. Makes me wish I knew someone who was getting married this year. It would be amazing to create all of this just for that perfect someone. You must have had someone very special in mind that inspired you to design all of this right??? Your daughter maybe? Just gorgeous and so very chic Becca. I adore it.

    Good afternoon Becca flower,
    I have been waiting for you to show this wee handbag as i think that it is so cute but so useful. Imagine giving a girlfriend a gift and giving it in a special wee bag made up for just her or a daughter or granddaughter. Wee ones as well as big wee ones love to get a wee gift and when it comes made to their taste you can be sure they will love it. Thank you flower for making me skint (broke, sorry forgot skint is a Scottish word) again as both of these dies are going to be a need as well. Take care dear lady

I M-U-S-T have this die. Your rendition is exquisite, so elegant; however, I’m out there seeing my versions. I don’t want to wish my life away, but am ‘patiently’ waiting for March. I’m just saying!!!ReplyCancel
