Painted Poppies Gift Bag

Hello, and welcome to the 4th instalment of my Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Stamp Set Showcase. If you have missed parts 1-3 you can find them here (part 1, part 2, part 3).

This week I’d like to show you a project using the Stampin’ Up! Copper Dotted Treat Bags. These bags are really cute on their own but you can really step them up with a little embellishment.

Let’s make it…

In this case, I have cut 5 leaves and the swirly label out of Copper Foil Sheets using the Painted Labels dies which are part of the Painted Poppies bundle. I have also cut the largest label out of Whisper White cardstock.

To create the two poppies, I first stamped the ‘in-fill’ stamp onto Whisper White cardstock in ‘second generation’ Soft Suede ink. This simply means that once I had inked up the stamp, I stamped onto my grid paper and then onto the Whisper White (without reinking the stamp). I really want to do another version of this project using Rococo Rose as the ‘in-fill’ because it seems to coordinate so well with metallics. I then heat embossed the poppy images in Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder. These were cut out using the coordinating dies.

I layered and adhered all of my die cuts and attached to the gift bag using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch is provided by one of the Mini Library Clips which keeps the bag closed.

I think these Treat Bags are fabulous for small gifts, table favours or even gift cards. The use of metallics creates a really luxurious look which I’m sure your recipient will adore!
