Good afternoon and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator. Today, I’d like to share with you a gift bag made special for my husband, for Father’s Day. It again features the In Good Taste Suite *Item #154147*

Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder

Using a full 12″×12″ sheet of In Good Taste Designer Series DSP, score at 3 1/2″, 5 3/4″, 9 1/4″ and 11 1/2″.
Fold on all score lines burnishing well with Bone Folder.
Using paper snips cut up to the score lines. Remove small rectangle.
Apply tear and tape to 11 1/2″ edge. Remove plastic and fold over to adhere creating the sides of the gift bag.
Add Stampin’ Seal + to the medium size squares and fold inward pressing to adhere.
*TIP* May have to put hand inside the gift bag to secure well.
Pinch the top closed with fingers and use hole Punch to create holes and run the ribbon through and tie a bow.
*TIP* Can use small clothes pins to secure the bag to Punch the holes instead of holding and trying to punch the holes at the same time.
Now that our bag is assembled, it’s time to decorate the front. Using a piece of Gray Granite Cardstock measuring 2 3/4″×4 3/4″, I embossed it using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Using a piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 2 1/2″×4 1/2″ I stamped the small squares image from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set in Basic Gray and Gray Granite Inks.
Using a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock, I die cut it using the Tasteful Labels Dies and stamped the “You Are The Best” sentiment in Gray Granite Ink. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Tasteful Label. I used the new Stampin’ Seal + to glue the embossed Gray Granite Cardstock and stamped Whisper White Cardstock and then exposed the sticky of the Stampin’ Diminsionals on the back the stamped Tasteful Label and placed it in the Center of the stamped Whisper White Cardstock.
I added the Stampin’ Seal + to the back of the embossed Gray Granite Cardstock and adhered it to the front of the bag pressing gently but firmly.
I used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the In Good Taste Elements in place.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you’ll join me again for another edition.
