I was absolutely sure that I didn't need the Gift Bag Punch Board even after trying it out at Convention. After all, I can make a gift bag without it. Then I had another think about it and ordered, because it is fairly inexpensive at $32.00, and when I need to make multiple gift boxes for Easter or Christmas gift-giving, this is going to be much quicker. I'll have more time for decorating the boxes!
In the same order I received Stake Your Claim stamp set, Floral Wings Hostess stamp set and the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Brick Wall. This bag was inspired by the pretty pink bag with a piece of Embossed Butterfly decorating it, on page 58, so pretty and it uses Oh My Goodies bundled with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits. Before I assembled the box, I stamped it with Sahara Sand ink and the Hardwood stamp. Looking at it in the pictures, it might have paid to have stamped that with Tip Top Taupe, it's quite subtle. I was inspired to emboss the wall onto Sahara Sand card, but you wouldn't know that now as I went nuts with a sponge and Tip Top Taupe, Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon inks to give it warmth and texture. The grout lines of this folder are very deep, but it doesn't break the card. I've seen it used with either side as the feature too. Also, it is a BIG 6" X 6" and still fits through the Big Shot!
If you need any of these products, the product list takes you right to that item in my online store, and the Hostess Code is 6J7FYB24. I'm closing this 'party' at the end of July, and it has already reached the hostess dollars mark, so you will be awarded 10% of your order in product - sharing the love of Stampin' Up!
