Welcome back for day 10 of the 12 Days of Christmas. Today I am sharing this pinch bag made with the Beary Christmas suite. It is perfect for gifting a small treat or gift. If you have been following my friend Brenda Nelson Stamps and Stretchy Pants and I, we have been having fun sharing holiday inspiration with you each day,
I apologize for the gap in sharing. Parts of my blog functionality were down, and I was unable to create posts! But we are back on track now for the last 3 days.
This little bag is so adorable, and really easy to make. It’s a great way to showcase designer series paper, but you could also make it with cardstock.
For this bag, I brought in the adorable polar bears from the Beary Christmas Suite. And do you see the ‘snow’? This is the Pearlized Enamel Effects in white. It worked great!
To create this project:
Score a 12″ x 6″ piece of designer series paper at 1 3/4″ on the short edge, and 1-1/2″, 4-1/4″, 7-1/4″ and 10″ on the long edge. Make note of pattern direction before scoring. Burnish all the score lines well. Trim along vertical score lines from the bottom edge up to the horizontal score. Fold bag and adhere overlapping ends. Fold bottom flaps in and adhere in place. Squeeze the sides in and pinch so top folds closed. Create a tab for the top with a 3/4″ x 3″ scrap folded in half. Staple in place to hold bag closed once filled. Tie a white twine bow around tab. Place a Night of Navy decorative circle punch on the front. Stamp tree in Mossy Meadow ink and fussy. Adhere to circle. Embelish with a star or gem on the top. Stamp polar bear in Balmy Blue ink. Add a scarf in Sweet Sorbet, then punch and adhere with dimensionals. Stamp (2) presents. Fussy cut and adhere. Stamp sentiment in Sweet Sorbet ink, trim, and adhere to bag.
Thanks for stopping by today for another cute project made with the Beary Christmas suite. Not hop on over to see what Brenda has to share, I know it will be another great one!
