Once you’ve made a card using the exclusive free Sizzix papers and embellishment printables and one of the free projects we posted earlier (find them here and here), it’s time to start crafting a gift bag for the happy couple to unwrap on their big day! Follow the step-by-step instructions below to create yours!
? Cream, kraft & blue card
? Exclusive free Sizzix printable papers and embellishments
? Thinlits dies – Borders by Rachael Bright, from Sizzix
? Framelits 5 pack die set – Fancy Labels #5 by Stephanie Barnard, from Sizzix
? Heart pin, striped ribbon, self-adhesive pearls, hot glue gun, hole punch, double-sided tape, PVA glue, sticky foam pads
Take a 31×11.5cm rectangle of kraft card and score two lines 13cm from each of the short ends. Fold to create a card triangle. Wrap your gift in cream tissue and place inside a large square card bag and then stick the top of this to the inside top of your wrapper using double-sided tape.
Die-cut two blue card borders using one of the Thinlits dies from your border set and stick these to the edge of a 14×7.5cm band of striped paper and then stick this to the front of your wrapper, tuck under any excess.
Use a large hole punch to make to holes at the top of your wrapper and thread this with ribbon before tying into a bow and piercing with a heart pin.
Die-cut the phrase ‘Happily Ever After’ using one of the Label Framelit dies and mount this onto a larger die-cut cream Label shape using PVA. Stick this to the front of your wrapper using foam pads.
Cut out a heart border from the embellishment sheet and trim before attaching to the striped panel using double-sided tape. Decorate each little heart with a self-adhesive pearl.
Make three flowers using the Flowers, 3D Bigz die and attach to the wrapper using a hot glue gun.
