SU training - More Amore Papers

This week I went to my SU training and we always make a swap - I made a tag using the More Amore papers - which I was also demonstrating!  I used the Serene Silhouettes stamp set and Primrose Petals ink and Crumb cake CS.  The little scallops below my tiny piece of DSP is made using the pennant punch!

I also made this little door hanger for Amanda who is my upline leader - you can see her blog here
I thought she could hang it in her craft room/office!

Below is my Bag in a box which I demonstrated - you can see the instructions on the blog post below!

Please come back soon when I will have photos of my Scrapbooking pages I made with the More Amore papers and the Artisan Embellishment kit.  Hopefully soon I'll have the photos of my album I made!
Thanks for visiting

Bag in a Box

Today I am showing how this bag is made at my SU training day.  I cannot take credit for the idea as I found it on Splitcoast Stampers - this is a tutorial by Diana Gibbs - the tutorial can be found here - it is so clear and easy to understand!  The box/bag is a perfect size for chocolates/biscuits/sweets and the perfect size for a cupcake!!  All you need is a piece of cardstock 4.5" by 4.5" for the box base, DSP 5.5" x 11" and then a final strip of cardstock 1" by 11" - finished off with tags at the top and ribbon and an embellishment of you choice for the front of the bag.
 Diana used the retired tag punch to make her tags at the top, I have adapted this by using the Decorative Label punch (see pics below)
To make the top tags - You will require to punch out two decorative tags
 Fold in half and do some faux stitching using a white signo pen.
 Using the circle punch from the Itty Bitty punch set  - keep the tag folded in half and punch out a little circle - this is what you will thread the ribbon through.
Use sticky strip or Tombow for this project - Snail will just not stick!  I have used More Amore papers, Primrose Petals cardstock, Silver Glimmer paper, Designer Vintage Faceted buttons, and the lovely Two-Tone Ribbon (Pink Pirouette/Rose Red)
Thanks for taking the time to look and please say 'Hi' if I saw you at training today - it would be great to put a face to a blog!!
Love and Hugs
