My project today features the Window Wishes Bundle and the fabulous Snowflake 12 x 12 Specialty Vellum!
For the bag:
- 2 pieces of specialty vellum cut at a 10" square
- Score 3 sides at 2-1/2" and the last side at 1-1/4"
- Fold each scored line and give it a good crease using a bone folder. It will really help with the vellum
- Holding the scored vellum in front of you:
- fold the 1-1/4 line toward you and glue down (makes the top flap)
- snip off the bottom left and bottom right squares leaving the middle flap
- all the 2-1/2 scored lines get folded back
- do this to both 10" squares
- Adhere the two 10" pieces together. Side flaps first an then the bottom.
Here a side angle picture.
The window/candles/wreath are all made with the Window Wishes Bundle.
A couple of tips:
- Use a Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker to add dots of berries to the wreath.
- I cut the two window dies with Basic White card stock but then also cut the inner die again with Basic Black cardstock.
- I inserted the black negative pieces to give a solid background.
Another Tip: when making the bag and using vellum, the 1-1/4" top flap will show the dull side of the vellum. I took left over strips of the specialty vellum paper and adhered to the four flap sides. I used 2 pieces of 1-1/8" x 2-3/8" and 2 pieces of 1-1/8" x 4-7/8". Colored card stock would also look nice.
Because the vellum is a thicker material, it does not show the Stampin' Seal+ adhesive used to hold the bag together!
I hope you like my project now....
