Gorgeous Fan Top Gift Bag Using Stampin Up! Products

Gorgeous Fan Top Gift Bag

Hi Crafters,

Welcome to my blog and my usual Sunday tutorial on here and my YouTube channel. Today i have a pretty fan top gift bag, its so easy to make and looks very elegant.

As you all know, stampin up DSP is very thick. This means that you will need very strong tape in order to keep the bag closed.

Hope you like it.

For this bag i have used the Eastern palace DSP, matching stamp set and dies. You can purchase these from my online shop.


DSP measuring 12 x 12"

Score one side @ 2,  5 3/4,  7 3/4,  &  11 1/2"

Score the other side @ 1/2,  1,  1 1/2,  2,  2/ 1/2,  3,  3 1/2,  4,  4 1/2,  5,  5 1/2,  6,  6 1/2,  7  &  10 1/2

Hope you like it.

Thank you

Gorgeous Pencil Gift Box!

Hi Crafty peeps,

Welcome to my blog & another tutorial on here & my YouTube channel.

Today i have the sweetest little project for you! I totally adore it, its just the cutest thing ever. I hope you agree!

The cutest little pencil gift box ever! These would make great little gifts to give to the kids for going back to school. You can fill them with Pens & Pencils like i have, but they would also be great to put little chocolates in. You could gift them to Teachers.

I used a small treat bag to put my Pens in and tied it with some ribbon.

The Pink pencil was stamped using the Brushwork Alphabet stamp set. I stamped with Versamark & heat embossed with Gold powder.

The Blue Pencil was heat embossed with silver powder & the sentiment is from Daisy Delight stamp set.
