Hi everyone! 

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.

I share my creations on my blog: https://derkleineklecks.blogspot.com and my Instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/derkleineklecks/.

 

Here is a look at the project I prepared for you:

Sewed treat bags with flowers.

You Will Need:

Sizzix Big Shot Machine #660200

Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 5pk - Wildflower Stems #1 #664163

Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 6pk - Ticket Booth #662698

Sizzix Accessory - Cardstock Sheets 80pk (20 colours) #663007

 

  • First I watercoloured some sheets of cardstock in different colors.

  • 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!

Happy crafting!

Julia
