Julia´s flower treat bags
I am very happy to be here on the Sizzix Blog today sharing a handmade paper project with you.
My name is Julia and I'm living in the south of Germany together with my family.
Since I remember I've always loved crafting, especially paper crafting. In 2014 I started cardmaking by chance, and the Sizzix Big Shot was one of my first purchases. Soon cardmaking became a real passion for me - followed by an increasing amount of supplies at home. ;)
Is there anything better than creating with beautiful papers, dies and stamps? I don´t think so! ;)
Working with Sizzix products is pure joy for me, I love the inspiring, modern and versatile design.
Here is a look at the project I prepared for you:
Sewed treat bags with flowers.
You Will Need:
- First I watercoloured some sheets of cardstock in different colors.
- After drying I die-cut a lot of flowers and branches using the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 5pk - Wildflower Stems #1 #664163.
- Then I chose some coloured cardstock from the Sizzix Accessory - Cardstock Sheets 80pk (20 colours) #663007 that fit well together with the flowers.
- Next I die-cut one ticket for each bag from the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 6pk - Ticket Booth #662698 and stamped a little sentiment on them.
- For the future bags I halved the cardstock lengthwise and folded it in the middle. Additionally I wave-edged the paper, but this is optional.
- Then I chose some of my die-cut flowers and arranged them on each of the prepared pieces of paper, adhering them with fluid adhesive. Afterwards I sewed the little stamped tickets on the paper.
- If you also like to add a button, the next step is important: Sew on a button BEFORE you sew the whole bag together. ;) Afterwards it is not possible anymore or at least very difficult.
- Once the buttons are fixed, I took the sewing machine and sewed the paper halves together.
That´s it! :)
I created four different colourful treat bags.... and - which is a little bit more characteristic of my style - two more white bags.
I hope I inspired you to try something similar with your Big Shot. It really is fun - I can warmly recommend it to you! :)
Thank you so much for reading!
