I honestly sat down to my very messy desk and couldn’t think of what to do. There are many reasons to stay organized, and that is one of them. I looked to my paper for inspiration, as I usually do when I get stumped. But I haven’t purchased any of the new paper yet, so that threw me another loop. I really had to look for a little extra creativity, so I kept looking. The foil velum carried over and I had some of that. For the win!
I started out with the idea of making a purse style gift bag, but thought it was looking to be too bulky and wide. So, I cut it in half and went for two of these little beauties. I stamped my wisteria wonder card stock with the medium stamp from flowering flourishes to go under the velum. I love the soft layering it gives.
I used a whole 12 x 12 sheet of velum to start with. When I trimmed it to match the 8.5 x 11 I had a nice strip left over. I cut that in two and made two mini envelopes for the tiny gift cards. The cards are large enough for a tiny note and also house a gift card. Nice, right?
I plan on putting a couple of gourmet cookies in a cellophane bag to tuck inside the gift bags. It should make a lovely set.
Have a creative day!
