OnStage Gifts

One of the great things about attending OnStage are the gifts--to team members, roommates, friends. I created a gift bag that I filled with a card, an Altoids tin, a Starbucks coffee holder, and a wooden ornament.

Here is the gift bag.  It was so easy to create!  I purchased the white bags at Dollar Tree (3 for $1!) and then decorated them.  You can do this for your holiday gifts as well.  I cut out some Designer Paper (this was 6 inches across and I cut it at 4"--Normally I would have done 6x6 but I didn't have enough paper for that.)  I scored it in half and then used the ClassicLabel punch to punch out the center of the score lines so that the handles would fit through it.  I had to punch a little more than once to get this.  You just punch a portion of that score area so that it is not so large.  I created the tag using the glimmer paper.  I stamped the sentiment "For You" in poppy parade ink on whisper white and then it out using the Stitched Labels Framelits.  You could use a circle punch to get the same effect.  I layered that on a scalloped circle of Poppy Parade.  Mrs. Claus was diecut from the designer paper using the matching framelits.  I attached them to the tag with dimensionals.

Now for what was in that bag:  

I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock (cut 8.5 x 3') to create the holder for the Starbucks Peppermint Mocha coffee and rounded off the edges.  I stamped the sentiment using Cherry Cobbler ink on whisper white and cut out with the Coffee Cafe framelits.  The "whipped cream" was cut out of glimmer paper. I used a little Tear & Tape to hold the sides together.

I created Wooden Ornaments using some wood slices I purchased on Amazon.  I stamped them with various stamps using Stazon ink and let them set for a few days.  I then colored them in with Stampin' Blends.  Here is one of my ornaments


I used our gold cord to create the hanger.  

Here is the card I created for this gift bag:


I'll share the swaps I made for trading and the swaps I received in another blog post.
