Paper Bag Gift Card Holders

Good Afternoon, Everyone! And Welcome to my new followers! I'm so pleased to have you follow my blog. I hope you find this an inspiring place to visit.

If you are looking for my Fantabulous Cricut "Deck The Halls" Crawl post you can find it HERE.

Today's project is for Peachy Keen Stamps' "Let's Face It" Paper Bag Challenge. The challenge is to use a paper bag or lunch sack and a Peachy Keen Face. I decided to make 2 gift card holders for my niece and nephew.
This penguin card is for my niece.
The next card is for my nephew.
These were really fun to make and I know I will do this again in the future.

The Supply List:
  • Paper Lunch Sacks ~ I cut my sacks so that they measured 10 inches long
  • ATG or Glue Runner ~ You want to seal the pleats on the sides of the bags
  • Red sticky tape ~ this is used to make the pocket for the gift card
  • Solid Cardstock ~ Recollections and Papertrey Ink
  • Patterned Paper ~ K&Company "Peppermint Twist" Stack, Cloud 9 Designs "Harvest Holiday"
  • Cricut Cartridge ~ Simply Charmed
  • Peachy Keen Stamps ~ PK-521 Winter Faces 1 1/8 ( Boy Penguin and Santa), PK-754 Critter Faces Set A Medium (Girl Penguin)
  • Action Wobbles ~ I used these on the girl penguin and Santa
  • Cuttlebug ~ Snowflakes, Seeing Spots, and D'vine Swirl Embossing folders
  • Stickles ~ Stardust (Santa's hat and snow)
  • Martha Stewart Punch
  • Fiscars Punch
  • Ribbon
  • Button
  • Foam Tape
  • White Gelly Roll Pen
Peachy Keen Stamps has fun challenges every 2 weeks. If you have never played along, you should give it a try. There are fabulous prizes to win.

Happy Crafting!

I love all that doodling you added to Santa and your penguins are adorable. I haven't made any penguin cards yet, but I may need to now.

Happy Holidays,
