Hostess gift – Box in a Bag

Here is another Box in a Bag (did I say how inspired I was by Rachel’s pressie, lol?!).  This one I made for one of my hostesses as her thank you gift.  If you would like to make your own Box in a Bag, then click here to see the tutorial.

For this box, I used Love Letter Designer Series Paper and Very Vanilla and Basic Black textured cardstock.  For the tag, I first rolled in Crumb Cake the Music Notes wheel.  Then I stamped the thank you sentiment from Curly Cute in Riding Hood Red.  I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake and popped a Vintage Brad at the top of the tag.

I tied the box together with two punched Round Tab pieces of Basic Black, a hole punched in both with my Crop-a-dile, and then threaded with Basic Black satin ribbon and Chantilly Crochet Trim lace.  And that was it!  So easy.

Thanks for looking 🙂

Birthday Bag in a Box

I was really inspired by my Secret Santa gift from Rachel Jackson before Christmas.   In case you didn’t see her gift, click on this link to see her wonderful creation.  I loved it so much, I made a copy of it for a birthday gift, which you can see below.  And for another birthday gift, I made a taller version using SU’s Lap of Luxury Designer Series Paper.

For both boxes I used Basic Black textured paper and the stamp set Well Scripted (only available in the current Summer Mini until 31 March 2011) for the sentiment.  I also used a vintage brad on each sentiment and the Round Tab punch to tie on the Basic Black Satin Ribbon at the top.

For the sentiment tag on the Lap of Luxury Bag in a Box, I also used a scrap leftover from my sister’s wedding invitations.  So it was already embossed with the Big Shot and the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  And I sponged the edges of the tag with Concord Crush and sprayed it with my new Gold Glow Smooch Spritz – which I adore!  Here is a close-up of the sentiment.

For the other box, I used, of course, the same paper as Rachel – Love Letter DSP with a Very Vanilla tag, which I had sponged the edges with in Basic Black.
