Unity Stamp Challenge - Gift Wrapping

This month's Challenge it's all about Gift Giving so the Challenge:
Gift Wrapping or it could also include:
Gift tags
Gift card holders
Bags and so on!!!
So here is my creation of a gift bag for my son that holds some Lindor chocolates. I used a Cricut cartridge called 'Tags, Bags and More to cut out my scalloped bag. I used the scallop bag feature and cutting  it at 6 1/4" (with the real dial off) using Early Espresso paper by Stampin'Up. I then cut the same bag at 5 3/4" using My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas Paper for the second layer alternating between the gold dot paper on one side and the damask paper on the other by cutting each section out. I then cut the 3rd layer @ 5" alternating between using brown paper on one side and striped paper on the other by doing the same thing. I used doily oval from the set called Ornate Artisan Stackers by Unity Stamp Co. using Merlot pigment ink and embossed using wine EP all by Clearsnap. I colored the image using Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals. I then stamped a scallop oval from the same collection using gold pigment ink and clear EP by Clearsnap. I then colored it again using the magicals. I added a sticker from the collection by My Mind's Eye for the middle.  I added chipboard stickers for the rest of the sides of the scallop bag.
I cut out 12" strips of Early Espresso that were 3/4" wide and then added crochet ribbon by May Arts I attached them using red brads by My Mind's Eye. Then I used 5/8th Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon to front and 1/4" metallic ribbon on the backside to cover the strips of paper.
Pin It Now!
