Do you think I have enough descriptions in the heading? When I first saw a picture of this box I knew I had to track down who made it and how to replicate it.
Happily the lady in question has both a blog and a YouTube Channel. She calls herself Mixed Up Craft and her projects are amazing. This Bag looks complicated, and to be honest it is not that straight forward, but once you get the hang of it, you will be able to make loads of them with ease. I am going to see if I can change the dimensions and make different sizes, which I think could be really cute.
Both of the bags I have made are using retiring products, all of which are/were available at the point I shot the video, but as with all retiring itmes, they are only availble while stocks last, so if you want any of them, please jump over to my online store and fill your baskets. The basic dimensions and scoring instructions for this bag are further down this post, but you are probably going to want to watch the video too!
I am working realy hard to try to earn the Incentive Trip this year, which is a cruise around the Greek Islands. Everyone who shops with me is helping to get me just that little bit closer, so if you are in the UK and need any Stampin’ Up! supplies, I would be very grateful for your support, just by shopping with me! This month I have a Give Away for people who do, in addition to my usual Thank You.
every £25 you spend in April AND use the Hostess Code, you will be
entered into a draw to win the Many Marvellous Markers, so if you
place orders of £50, you will get 2 entries, £75, you will get 3
entries etc. BUT if you place a single order of over £150 and opt to
be your own Hostess (which means you pick how to spend your Rewards)
you will only get ONE entry into the draw. Please note that this is a
gift from me, and is non-returnable. The usual Customer Gifts will
not be effected by the Prize Draw, so if you use the Hostess Code you
will get a share of the Rewards, as usual. EVERYONE who shops with me
will receive a handmade card and gift in the middle of the following
month, regardless of how much you spend.
your order is over £25 (plus P&P), please use the Hostess Code:
share in the Hostess Rewards for this month AND become a VIP. If your
order is over £150 (plus P&P), please don’t use the Hostess Code
as you will get to pick your own rewards, but don’t worry, you will
still become a VIP Reward Member.
Starter Kit is ALWAYS the best deal in the Catalogue and great value
at just £99 for your choice of £130 of products (with no additional
P&P). Once you are a Member of this great Family, you get a
discount on your future purchases, or an income from sales you make
to other people; Win,Win Right?
Two Pieces of Cardstock – 8-1/4 x 11″
Two Pieces of Designer Series Paper – 6-7/8 x 3-1/8
Two Pieces of Ribbon – 10″
Score each of the pieces of cardstock as follows:
Long Side at top of Simply Scored Score Board – 3-1/2 and 10-1/2″
Short Side at top and the narrow scored piece at the bottom – 3-1/2 and 6-3/4″
Rotate card so the other short edge is at the top and score at 3/4″ to the second score line only
Long Side with the last scored line at the top – 1 and 2-1/2 to first score line ONLY, then mark down from this first score line on the edge of the card and the next vertical score line, at 1-1/4″. Join these marks (score) to the bottom of each of the vertical lines you have just put in. Find the middle of these vertical lines too and mark 3/4″ up and down from this point.
Seriously, you need to watch the video, it really is not this difficult!!
