Happy Friday!! Thanks for visiting today - I wanted to share with you my Fabulous Friday project for the Sisters in Stamping blog. This week we are featuring Big Shot accessories and I am so excited about the new Gift Bow Bigz L die that arrived in my latest Stampin' Up! order from the Holiday catalog!! I didn't think this was something I "needed", but while I was at the Stampin' Up! convention last month I saw a lot of great ideas using it so I had to add it to my Big Shot stash. I'm so glad I did! Check out the super-cute gift bag I made with half a sheet of card stock and my Gift Bow die (you can find directions for the gift bag here). I even added some fun texture with the new Big Shot Stylish Stripes textured impressions embossing folder.
The bow was created using real red and daffodil delight papers from the Polka Dot Parade DSP pack - so glad I stocked up last month when it was on sale!! I added a piece of 1/4" real red stitched grosgrain ribbon for a handle on my gift bag and embellished it with the scallop edge border punch.
Here is a close-up of the tag/embellishment created using the Artisan Label punch and coordinating Label Love stamp set (you can purchase them together in a bundle and save 15%!). I added a few pearl accents - I thought they looked like the fun polka dots in the paper.
Here is another bag I made using the left over pieces from the first bow. I decided not to add any ribbon to this one and think it is just as cute! What do you think?
