Remember those little Harajuki Lovers perfume solids that Lindsey was giving to her friends a few weeks ago? Well, she has just a couple more to give away, so this time I made a little 'box in a bag' for it. This little bag is super easy to make, just the way I like it!
Diana Gibbs has a great tutorial on her blog to check out - I made a 4" square for the base and then wrapped it with a piece of 8 1/2" designer series paper (long retired, but one of my favorites!) that is about 5" tall. For the base, I just snipped the corners, instead of the diagonal score that Diana does. A 1" strip of Mellow Moss cardstock is punched with my Scallop Edge punch and wrapped it around the base. The top is held together with two Round Tab punches attached to the dsp, hole punched and tied with the Vanilla wide grosgrain. Be sure to use Sticky Strip to hold it all together.
I made the tag from some scraps of the dsp and Mellow Moss; the strip of Very Vanilla is stamped with the To/From out of the Winter Post stamp set. The corners are punched with the Tag Corner punch and then it is tied off with a piece of Mellow Moss gingham ribbon. I heated the tips of the ribbon with my Heat Gun to get a little curl on them. Then I cut up some strips of the scrap dsp, crimped them and wrapped them around my paper piercer for a twist. Those are tucked into the bag instead of tissue paper.
