Birthday Gift Bag with ATCs

8/21/22 Rising Star at A Place To Start!

Hey everybody! Happy Friday to you all! My new DT gig with the ScrapbookingStore is in full swing and I’m so loving the versatility of the papers and the embellishment upgrades in this month’s scrapbook kit! While the collection is beach-themed, I created a fun gift bag with a striped paper from the kit which will be used for a birthday. That’s what I mean by versatile! I’m wrapping up August’s shares with this gift bag along with three artist trading coins embellished with stickers from the upgrade sticker sheet to tuck into the gift bag!

Using the Lawn Fawn Goody Bag die from my stash, I cut the front and back pieces of the gift bag from a red and white striped pattern paper in the kit and assembled it.

I embellished the front of the gift bag with a stitched banner (cut from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Eris cardstock using the JustRite Stitched A2 Banners and Rectangles die set) and quite a few stickers, a clothespin, and a yellow sun clip from the embellishment upgrades. I also added some gemstones which completed the front.

Here are few more shots of the gift bag from different angles.

To make the artist trading coins that I tucked into the gift bag, I punched 2-1/2” circles from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and embellished them with CutCardStock Pop Tone Sweet Tooth and Cotton Candy cardstock, American Crafts POW Rouge Glitter Paper, bling, and stickers from the upgrade sticker sheet.
