Deconstructed Gift Bag featuring the Decorated with Happiness Bundle.

I’m sharing two projects with you, the first one is the same project as Week 7 of the 12 Weeks of Halloween. 

  1. Stars Treat Bags decorated with the Decorated Happiness Bundle.
  2. Deconstructed Gift Bag…. I  deconstructed the Stars Treat Bag and made it taller and a little thinner using Thick Basic White Cardstock. 

Let’s start with the Stars Treat Bag…  I used the Decorated Happiness Stamp Set for the greeting with the Stylish Shapes Dies.  The other pieces were cut out with the Decorated Pines Dies.  We used Gold Foil, Red Glimmer and Mossy Meadow Cardstock

Now for the Deconstructed Gift Bag, I used a full sheet of our Thick Basic White Cardstock (8-1/2″ x 11″).  For the topper and the greeting I used the Designer Tags Dies.  To hold the bag closed I used the Silver Threaded Trim and to hold the greeting I tied it with our Simply Elegant Trim.  For this bag I used our Silver Foil with the Red Glimmer.  Please watch my video on how to make this deconstructed gift bag!!

This taller bag measures: 7″ x 3-1/4″ x 2″.
