Gift bag (or is it a box?)

On Sunday I had a lovely crafting day with a couple of friends - designed to find Lucy's 'crafting mojo' which had disappeared.

I think we have definitely succeeded given how much she has spent on new goodies as she's now got the bug.  After a spot of stamping and colouring Tracy very kindly had a little project for us.

Even more kindly we used some of the new Stampin' up Christmas papers and ribbon.

It's a bag in a box - or box in a bag!!
A little box is wrapped with paper and a border punched strip has been added round the outside.

A couple of scalloped ovals bent over the middle of the paper with a hole in for the ribbon and tag added.
I would also add a sentiment or something decorative on the front but this is pending.

I see the new DOCrafts Creativity magazine also has a version of this - a rather fun way to present a gift so many thanks Tracy.


  1. That looks like a handy project to make. Not been able to get my hands on the new Creativity mag yet - hadn't arrived when I last looked.

  2. Great project Jill. Love the papers and using the scalloped tag as the ribbon threader. Haven't got my copy of Creativity yet.....maybe today!

  4. The mojo is back thanks to you & our Trace & costly... As now you know I order things in my sleep that I have no recollection of & still don't manage to use most of...! Anyone for pin flair glue??? Xx
