Hello there everyone,
It's my turn at Couture Creations again today, showing you all a step by step project created with some of the fabulous products from Couture Creations. My project for today, is a decorated gift bag, the flowers are made from the Couture Creations Scallop Circle Nesting Dies and background from a Couture Creations Annalee Romantique Embossing folder and Couture Creations Victorian Rectangle Nesting Dies.
I always have a stack of these plain brown paper gift bags in my cupboard, and I always decorate them and create a matching card or tag.
How to create the flowers:-
The Scallop Circle Nesting Die Cuts comes with 6 different sizes,
for my step by step, let's call the No1 Die the smallest and the largest die cut is No 6.
From Pink Cardstock,
To create the larger flower,
2 diecut pieces each of no 6,
1 diecut piece each of no4, no3 & no2.
To create the smaller flower
1 diecut of no4, no3 & no2 from pink card stock.
Cut a triangle cone shape out of each scallop circle.
Gently cut along between every third scallop shaped edges to the center,
but not all the way through.
Repeat this process for all the scallop circles.
Ink all the edges with raspberry ink.
Overlap one petal on top of the next petal where you made the cut, adhere with double sided tape. Repeat process to all flower petals.
With a bamboo skewer or thin stick, curl all the edges of the petals over, this will give them dimensions to each petal. Pierce a hole in the center of each flower, place smaller flower inside middle flower and this inside the large flower, place Kaisercraft pearl brad through centre of flower.
Cut a piece of Black Magic Core'dinations Hermit GX-BM570 coloured card stock, fit inside the Annalee Romantique Embossing folder, once embossed, gently sand over cardstock to reveal embossed image.
Cut 2 Victorian Rectangle Nesting Dies , from brown card stock, ink edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, then cut in half, place and adhere on top and bottom side of embossed Black Magic cardstock. Adhere this cardstock on the front of paper bag with double sided tape. Adhere flowers with doubled sided foam in the middle.
adding a twine bow on the top.
........so, I hope I have given you all a little inspiration to create your own gift bags with tags, and create stunning flowers with Couture Creations Nesting Dies.
Happy crafting everyone :) Cheers Adriana XX
