Join me to make this bright and cheerful Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane gift bag!
I’m so pleased that my Daisy Lane Stamp Set Showcase fell on a month with 5 Sundays! Last week I showed you three different Daisy Lane cards using the same colour scheme. If you missed that blog post, you can find it here.
Those of you who follow me on Pinterest (@hc_handmadecrafts) may have noticed that I’ve been trying to organise my boards and one of the new ones is called ‘SU Bright and Cheerful’. Surely Daisy Lane would be the perfect bundle to create a new project to add to the board. In this case I have used the punch from the bundle and combined it with the larger Daisy punch.
I decided on a Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane gift bag as we have already looked at cards, gift boxes, tags and home décor pieces.
How to make it…
The basic bag is made from Bermuda Bay cardstock measuring 27x18cm. Simply score along the long edge at 8, 13, 21 and 26cm and along the short edge at 14.5cm. See the black lines in the diagram. Snip to create tabs as soon by the orange lines in the diagram. Fold along all score lines and crease with a bone folder. Add ‘tear and tape’ along the sections labelled a and b, assemble and adhere.
How to decorate it…
To decorate the bag, I used the Daisy and Medium Daisy punches to cut out 4 large daisies and two medium daisies from Melon Mambo cardstock. These are layered together and adhered to form 2 large daisies and 1 medium daisy. The centres are decorated using Clear Faceted Gems. I have punched ‘Sprigs’ from Granny Apple Green cardstock and layered them behind the daisies.
The two large daisies are adhered straight to the gift bag. The medium daisy is adhered to a tag which I created from a 5x10cm piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock. The top of the tag is formed using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and for the bottom I have rounded the corners using the Detailed Trio punch.
The sentiment is die cut from Mango Melody cardstock using the Well Written dies – in this case I have used ‘hooray’. The final touch is one of the retired Gold Library Clips but any similar clip would work just as well.
As well as showing off how versatile these punches are, I think this gift bag also shows how vibrant the ‘Brights’ colour family is. There are some great choices to make your summer craft projects stand out from the crowd and put a smile on people’s faces.
I really hope you have enjoyed this tutorial for the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane gift bag, and the last 5 weeks as we have explored the Daisy Lane bundle and some fabulous coordinating products. As usual, if you have any questions leave them below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Next week will see the start of a brand new Stamp Set Showcase. I just need to decide what to feature!
