Dragonfly Dreams

I recently held a class using the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle.  They made three cards with matching envelopes.  A  bonus project was this little decorated Kraft Gift Bag to hold all of the cards if they wanted to give it as a gift!  I thought it turned out sweet!



Here are the details:

  • The Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bag was stamped with the dotted image in Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set with Crumb Cake Ink along the edges.
  • 1″ from the top was scored and folded backwards.
  • Strips of Urban Development Designer Paper were cut for banners with a flag end.
  • A length of Very Vanilla/Gold Metallic Ribbon (retired SAB) was folded in half, then stapled to the banners.  The banners were adhered to the front of the bag below the score line.
  • The dragonfly strip was cut with the Detailed Dragonfly Framelits from Basic Black cardstock and adhered to the banners.
  • The greeting from Dragonfly Dreams was stamped with Memento Black Ink on a 1/2″ strip of Very Vanilla, cut with a flag end, then attached to the banners.
  • A Gold Binder Clip was added to the top to hold the bag closed.
  • Linen Thread was tied in a bow on the Gold Binder Clip.


LOVE it!  This little packaging could hold SO much!  What would you put in it?
