My paper crafting project for you today is this DIY Mini Gift Bag. It was made with some new Online Exclusive products that are available starting today, July 3rd. Those items are:

The darling snowman is from the Filled with Cheer Stamp Set and I colored the image with several of our Stampin Blends Markers (also known as Alcohol Markers). The “Happy Holidays” greeting can be found in our Greetings of the Seasons Stamp Set.

The DIY Mini Gift Bag was made with the Season Of Green & Gold 12″ X 12″ (30.5 X 30.5 Cm) Specialty Designer Series Paper and I used my box templates (but, it’s a bag) and I used Box Template 150.

The Clear bags are 4″ x 9″ and I purchased the Wilton clear party bags in the cake decorating isle at Hobby Lobby.

I apologize for my mistake during the live video. The original box was made with 7″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper and the one I made live was 6″ x 12′. Dave and I had a good laugh this morning watching the replay.🤣

Here’s a picture of both of them…
