Holiday Gift Bags & More!!

We're back for Day Two of our Graphic 45 week! Yesterday we kicked things off with announcing our first Guest Designer and our pairing up with Graphic 45. Our Glue Girls have been working with the new Graphic 45 Christmas Traditions paper collection. Which you can see at Graphic 45's website!

Today Designers Danielle Flanders and Lindsay Wahl are showcasing their holiday gift bags and boxes! Plus we have more projects to show you from our Guest Designer!!


Holiday Treat Bags
Designer: Danielle Flanders

Supplies:


Glue Arts® Glue Glider Pro® High Tac
May Arts Ribbons
Graphic 45 Deluxe Christmas Past Paper Pad
Cellophane bag

Compliments of the Season Treat Bag:



Step 1: Cut Graphic 45 striped paper 11" x 4 1/2". Fold paper at 3/4", 5" and 6 1/2". Fill a cellophane bag with candy and insert now into inside of bag, folding the flap over top towards the front. Round corners on the flap. Punch a hole through everything (candy bag too to hold it in), string twine through hole and tie into a bow on front.

Step 2: Dress up the front of the bag with some May Arts leaves to resemble a tree. I added 3 leaves to the bottom first, then 2 leaves over the top for the center row of the tree and then 2 more leaves to the very top row of the tree with the Glue Glider Pro. The leaves stick wonderfully with this adhesive!

Step 3: Add a Graphic 45 die cut saying to the bottom and a red snowflake with a pearl to the flap for the star on the tree.

---------------------



Merry Christmas Treat Bag:

Step 1: This bag is slightly smaller than the other one, but you could make it the same as above, following the same steps to create the bag.

Step 2: Dress up the front of the bag by tying the bag with May Arts pom pom trim. Add a Graphic 45 Santa die cut and a pearl. Adhere 2 leaves to resemble "holly". Punch a 2" circle of the red paper and cut in half. Adhere under the flap.

Step 3: Cut a red snowflake in half and adhere it to the bottom left corner of the bag to add a bit of color to the bottom.

Step 4: Cut Merry Christmas from a Graphic 45 die cut and adhere.



Graphic 45 Christmas Gift Box
Designer: Lindsay Wahl


Supplies:
• GlueArts® Adhesives: 3-d Combo Pack, Adhesive Squares™, Mini Adhesive Squares, 12x12 WallArt® (2 sheets)

• Graphic 45 Christmas Past Deluxe Paper Pad
• Die cuts: Sizzix
• Rhinestones: Bo Bunny
• Ribbon: May Arts
• Other: gift box (Target dollar spot!), glitter glue




Instructions:
1. Die cut flowers. Paint with glitter glue. Choose Graphic 45 die cuts and add a glitter glue border around the perimeter. Allow all of the pieces to dry.
2. Put WallArt
® adhesive on the back of one full sheet of patterned paper and two different 6”x 12” sheets of patterned paper. The full sheet will be to cover the gift box. The two half sheets will be for the decorative borders in the middle of the box.
3. I didn’t measure anything while covering the box. I just cut a piece for each end, removed the adhesive liner and stuck the paper to the box. I trimmed the excess paper, leaving a small bit to wrap around the sides and top edge (so you won’t see the original color of the box). Do this on all four sides. I die cut my scraps with a scalloped border die and adhered them on the inside of the box so it had a more decorative look.
4. Die cut four scalloped border strips from one of the sheets of 6”x 12” papers. Cut two 1” strips from the other patterned paper. Peel away the adhesive liner and adhere borders around the box as desired. One 12” border will cover a long side and a short side of the box.Trim away the edges.
5. Assemble large flower using Adhesive Squares
. Add rhinestone. Adhere to box with U-cut-It foam piece. Adhere Christmas tag to box with foam adhesive also; place the tag slightly under the flower.
6. Adhere die cuts on the other sides of the box using U-cut-It foam pieces. Add rhinestone stars; adhere with Mini Adhesive Squares. Assemble small flowers with mini squares and adhere to box.
7. Add ribbon as the box handle. Fill with your tissue paper and gift!




All week long we're thrilled to showcase projects with you designed by Candy Rosenberg...our Guest Designer. Candy is a member of the Graphic 45 Design Team and well....she's truly one talented gal. Here's some more of Candy's beautiful projects she has made for Graphic 45!


Be sure to visit Candy Blog for more inspiration! (if that's possible!!) 


ShadowBox 
Guest Designer: Candy Rosenberg


I had this 7Gypsies printer tray laying around for quite awhile, I just did not know where to start.  I do this often, I have items or products that I just keeping looking at until the idea comes to me.  I got started by taking bits of pieces of products and putting them together in fun ways.  The funnest part of this project was the canvas curtains with the paintbrush curtain rod.  This shadowbox can be found in the newest edition of Somerset Gallery by Stampington & Co.




My Girls Layout
Guest Designer: Candy Rosenberg
These layouts are using the new "Once Upon A Springtime" paper collection from Graphic45 and are my granddaughters that I got to meet for the first time.  My sons new family and baby girl.

  24. Hi there!
    Just a little thank you note!!!
    I am crazy about this great easel treat bag idea! I always adorn my cards, inside, and the back as well...I think the "gift" should continue. So I can't WAIT to try this "bag", because first we get the "gift"...the open, another gift, and when we eat the treats.. we STILL have the "gift" of the gifter ! Makes me so HAPPY! Thank ALL of the gifters, for the inspirations, of THEIR gifts, to US!
