I recently taught a class focussing on different ways to use the Gift Bag Punch Board and this was one of the projects everyone completed. A very similar Gift Bag was on display at Inspire, Create, Share on the Gold Coast and I just loved the fold over closure idea – just one of the ways to make your gift bag!
I have been going through metres and metres of the gorgeous satin ribbon in the last couple of months – it seems to be my go-to trim at the moment because it is just so elegant!
Peonies have been my favourite flowers for a long time so I just can’t leave this image alone! It comes from the stamp set You’ve Got This which has 2 great images but also a heap of GREAT senitments!

I cut the window using the wrong size framelit and it all went downhill from there – just goes to show that we all muck up our crafting projects and just have to carry on! Anyway, I have reworked the card to fix it up and it now looks much better!
We were lucky enough to visit my brand new nephew on the weekend – he is so sweet and content! My youngest baby is now 5 so I had definitely forgotten just how little new babies are! Of course I had to go shopping for some cute baby essentials to give and I needed just the perfect packaging to put it in! Baby’s bedroom has been done up in shades of grey & yellow so that was my starting point. I pulled out DSP, Cardstock and my Gift Box Punch Board & Gift Bag Punch Board and got to work!
I knew before I started that the full gift wouldn’t fit in 1 box so it was fun to be able to mix it up with 3 different packages! Then of course I needed a matching card as well:
