Huge Floral Romance Gift Bag. I wanted to make a Gift Bag that uses a full sheet of 12 x 12 card, with the smallest amount of waste, and I think I have found it. This bag measures 4-1/2 x 9-3/4 x 1-1/4″, excluding the handle. Now that is large, plus there are only a very few tiny pieces of card to go in the rubbish. I strongly urge you to visit the video for this one. Apart from anything else, you will get to see me in a muddle, again!
Other than the ribbon and Whisper White card, the gift bag only uses items from the Suite. I would have used the ribbon from the Suite, but it is currently out of stock, so I have substituted other ribbons.
The sample bag I made is really quite bold, but the one I made on camera has a much softer feel. Who would think you could get such different looks from this suite? Just by changing the colours you get a really different look, and I love them both.
I think this gift bag would be perfect for all sorts of gift, such as scarves, large bars of chocolate. In fact anything that can be packed tall and thin. Change the colours and it would work for a Gent’s tie. Don’t let the colours I choose limit your thoughts on what a project can be used for, just changing a couple of things makes all the difference. These two gift bags show that, even allowing for the items being from the same suite.
Oh, and just a closing thought. I had a real challenge with the photos for this, the bags are too big for my photo box! Fingers crossed they have worked OK.
