I used Newborn King for my card set this week so here is the design that I came up with for my Petite Cafe Bag to coordinate with the card set!

Week 3 Blog Hop Newborn King

Here are the details:

  • I stamped the word Merry from Cheerful Tags randomly on the bag using Cherry Cobbler Ink on the front and back sides.
  • I folded the top down after filling it with goodies, then added  a 1 1/2″ x 8″ strip of Under the Tree Designer Paper, adhering it just at the top and around to the back about 2″.  I cut the bottom with a flag end.  Doing it this way I can open the bag just by flipping up the banner and opening the tab.
  • Next, I cut a strip of 1 x 5″ Gold Glimmer Paper, then cut it in half so that the bottom was cut with a flag end and tucked under the Label Framelit, and the top tucks under the top of the Label Framelit and around to the back.  I saved a little bit of Gold Glimmer Paper that way!
  • I stamped the partial image of The Newborn King with Black Stazon Ink and used my AquaPainter and Markers to watercolor the image.  I cut it with a Circle Framelit and layered it on the Cherry Cobbler Label Framelit.  That was popped up on the front of the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I stamped the star with Crushed Curry ink on Soft Suede and punched it with the Small Oval Punch, then placed it on front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Make sure to continue on around the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Blog Hop to see all the fabulous bags our designers did this week!  Next stop is Natasha Zandbergen!
