Good Morning Stampers!
One of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is getting your hands on the newest goodies before everyone else! Demonstrators get to pre-order a few select items so we have a chance to “test drive” the product and make samples to share with all of you (aka-Sneak Peeks). One of the items available during the pre-order for the new annual catalog (starts June 2nd) was the Gift Bag Punch Board, which I immediately had to have! It took me a few tries to get it right, but now I’m off and running. If you like small cute things, you’re gonna love this Little Black Bag!
Little Black Bag!
What do you think? Pretty cute, huh!
This Little Black Bag measures roughly 3 1/2″ x 5″, which makes it the perfect size for small gifts, maybe a gift card and a little something extra…just because. I used the new Designer Series Paper Stack in the neutral colors. Stampin’ Up! changed the designs for the DSP Paper Stacks in the new catalog…flowers,stripes, polka dots and script… what’s not to love!
Since I’m a fan of the script on this DSP, I didn’t want to cover it all up with a bunch of stuff, so a bit of cotton ribbon and a nice tag did the trick. The curvy “hello” fits right in with the font, and the black background makes it “POP” right off the bag! I tried just hanging the “hello” all by itself, but it got lost in all the words on the bag, so I added the black oval. (FYI: The Hello You Thinlits are being carried over into the new annual catalog, and along with hello, includes the words happy, you and thanks…which makes it a very versatile die!).
Think of all the custom bags you could make…feminine or masculine, matching bags for birthday parties, weddings, graduations or whatever…gotta love the Gift Bag Punch Board, and you gotta love this Little Black Bag!
…inking outside the box!
Thanks for stopping by today…have a fabulous day!
