Fancy favor bag by Donna

Fancy Favor Bag with Donna


Happy Wednesday everyone!! Today I’m sharing with you a cute little favor bag made from patterned paper that I created using stamps from the Gel-a-tin stamp set called Sweet Cakes.

I used a Sizzix die from Stampin’ Up called Fancy Favor Bag. To make this bag you need a 6 x 12 piece of paper. After I got my paper ready, I picked out the four small stamps from the set - the strawberry, cherries and two cupcakes. I put these stamps on a Gel-a-tins acrylic block.

Then I stamped these four images all over my piece of pap er.

Then I colored in the images with Copic Markers.

Next, I ran it through my Big Shot and this is what it looked like.

I folded it on the lines and glued it together with a strong liquid craft glue. Making your own patterned paper is a great way to personalize a gift or card. This paper was easy to make and I found all the coloring relaxing. If you wanted to make multiple bags you could run your personalized paper through a color printer and make copies.

 Stop by my blog to see other Gel-a-tins projects and say hi if you get a chance . See you next Wednesday!!
