Gift Bag Punch Board Meets Sprinkles of Life!

Instead of buying bags for small treats and gifts, create them in a variety of sizes of your choice. The Gift Bag Punch Board makes it super simple to create gift bags in varying sizes. All you have to do is punch, score, and adhere......

This was one of the very first items I added to my Pre-Order from the new 2015-2016 Annual Catalog. It's a super tool to have for last minute gifting.

The first bag I made with the punch board was made to the exact directions but then I wanted to experiment. This is the 2nd bag I made...I even made this gift bag with a flap as you can see in the photo below. The triple-decker ice cream cone is glued in place with Stampin' Dimensionals but I left the top of it free so that the flap tucks under to keep the bag closed:

This is what the flap looks like when opened:

How did I create the flap? I added 2-1/4" for the width of the cardstock. Once all my score lines were created per the instructions from the punch board, I scored a line all the way across at the 2-1/4" measurement and cut off all of the remaining squares but keeping the one I wanted for the flap. I used the punch board to shape each edge of the flap.

Below is a close-up of the ice cream cone created with the Sprinkles of Life stamp set. Did you know that when you purchase this stamp set for yourself, a portion of the proceeds are sent to the Ronald McDonald House Chapters? Stampin' Up! has contributed over $1,000,000.00 to this charity. How wonderful for us to aid in this great cause!
