Stampin Friends Blog Hop - All About Paper

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop for August! 

This month's theme is 'All About Paper'. 

If you are following along with the Hop, you may have arrived from  Maureen's Blog. 

Be sure to read through my post, comment below and then continue on to Jo's Blog. 

If you get lost along the way, you can find a full list of all the participants at the end of each of their Blog Posts.

Here are the projects I made for this month's Hop ...

I used paper from the Wonderful World Designer Series Paper pack to create a Gift Bag and Card.

This paper is available for FREE as a bundle with the Wonderful World stamp set during our current Sale-a-Bration promotion. But if you want it, you will have to be quick! ... the promotion finishes at the end of this month!

The Gift Bag measures 6" tall, 4" wide and 1¾" deep. You can find a Video showing you how I created it below.

All the images used also came from the papers. They had to be cut out by hand, but it wasn't too fiddly :o)

I used the Very Best Trio punch to shape the corners of the lid. You don't have to use this though, you could just round the corners or slant cut the sides instead if you prefer.

... A side view of the Gift Bag.

This beautiful paper pack has 12 sheets of 12"x12" paper. Two each of 6 different double sided designs. You get two sheets of the large Flowers and an addition two sheets of the smaller Flowers, that can all be cut out.

The Basic White circles were embossed using the Timeworn Type 3D folder.

The sentiment is from the Go To Greetings stamp set.

Here is the Video for the Gift Bag ...


Wonderful World DSP – Base                                        11½” x 7¾”


With the LONG side across the TOP, score down at:         1¾”, 5¾”, 7½” and 11½”


Turn clockwise so the SHORT side is across the TOP, score down at: 1¾”



Blackberry Bliss – Lid                                                          4” x 3½”


With the SHORT side across the TOP, score down at:       ½” and 1½”


You will need additional Basic White and Blackberry Bliss card to complete the project.
