Peep through gift bag
Present your gift in a fun-loving gift bag that has a nifty acetate window.
1. Find the central point on one side of a Papermania Bare Basics Small White Gift Bag. Measure 1.75cm inwards from each side, and 4.5cm in from the top and bottom. Position the 8.5cm circle from the Xcut Circle Nesting Dies in the centre, fixing it with a little craft tape, place a piece of scrap cardstock over the top to stop the die from cutting on both sides of the bag, then run through the die-cutting machine.
2. Die cut a bigger circle from Papermania 12 x 12'' Plain Acetate and adhere to the inside of the bag to create a window.
3. Select three shades of cardstock per bag and punch each colour twenty times using the Xcut Ribbon Holes Palm Punch. Begin to fix the ribbon punches around the window, alternating colours as you go. Trim away any that overhang.
4. Paint a Papermania Bare Basics Wooden Sentiment in coordinating Artiste acrylic paint, allow to dry, then position in the centre of the gift bag with Stick it! 3D Mini Foam dots.
