If you need a creative presentation for gifts for your family and friends, try making handmade Christmas Gift Bags with Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!
This bag is made from Be of Good Cheer, with a rosette (or ribbon flower) made with a Jumbo Sticky Round and Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding. The center is cut from the Floral Frames Framelits, and stamped with Daydream Medallions. A Vintage Faceted Button and Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine top it off, with a Jewelry Tag for the recipient's name.
Have you tried making a rosette or ribbon flower with the Jumbo Sticky Rounds yet? If you love them as much as I do, you won't be able to stop making them. Especially this one, a gift topper made with Scalloped Tulle Ribbon:
I included a video on how to make the gift topper in the newsletter I sent out last week. If you signed up but didn't get the newsletter, it may be because I goofed, and it went out earlier than I had planned. So I just re-sent it to anyone who signed up last week after the newsletter went out. I was sick last week and it seems my brain took a vacation without me. 😀
It's too late to get something shipped from Stampin' Up! in time for Christmas (unless you pay extra for expedited shipping). If you or a loved one needs a gift in a hurry, don't forget that you can order Stamping Madly Gift Certificates for either merchandise or the online class, "Save Time and Get Organized!!! A Class for Paper Crafters with Clutter." You'll have the gift certificate the same day you order it. For more information about Stamping Madly Gift Certificates, use the button below:
As Christmas gets closer, I hope you're able to find some quiet time to sit and stamp. There's nothing better for reducing stress than playing with paper, ink, and embellishments. If you have to have a good excuse to take that time for yourself, then try making some handmade Christmas Gift Bags as part of your holiday preparations.
