I do, but only in very small amounts…

Basket of Flowers – Thank You Gift Supplies:
- Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch Bundle
- Stamp Block
- Ink Pads in color of choice
- Stampin’ Up! Cardstock in color of choice
- Gift Bag Punch Board
- Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine
I started with an 8.5 x 11 sheet of whisper white cardstock, and followed the instructions on the punch board for a medium sized gift bag.
Once I had it all punched out, I used adhesive along the long edge to adhere it together.
Then I closed up the bottom of the bag with the same adhesive.
Once I had my bag made, I started stamping. I stamped all of my images that I was using from the Basket Bunch stamp set. Side note: I really used to dislike using photopolymer stamps with the Stampin’ Up! ink pads. They would have blotches of color where it was like the ink puddled up. I don’t know what they did, but they have fixed this, and they stamp amazingly well now! 🙂
Once I had all my images stamped, I pulled out my Cuttlebug and used it with the Framelits dies to cut out all of my stamped images as well as the grass. I don’t have one, but using a magnetic cutting mat for this would make it SO much easier for lining everything up and having it stay that way while cutting.
Once I had all my stamped images cut out, it was time to put it all together on my gift bag.
I ended up using the solid stamped basket, rather than the cute one with holes in it. It just worked better for how I was using it. I just used the snail adhesive and put all of my pieces onto the bag.
Once I had the basket of flowers on the front of the bag, I put some little chocolate bars inside.
I punched holes at the top and tied it shut using the thick baker’s twine.
I added my Thanks a bunch tag and then tied it on with a bow.
I adore the way this turned out, and now I’m trying to come up with more ways to use the cute basket of flowers! Or maybe I should fill it up with eggs for Easter. 🙂 Doesn’t the basket of flowers look so cute?!
Even though I didn’t use dimensional adhesive, I feel like it still have a dimensional feel to it, and I love it.
So grab yourself some supplies and make up some of these cute bags for the next time you’re in need of a Thank you gift!
It’s the perfect little gift for anyone! You could even add a different saying to it and use it for a birthday or a just because gift.
