Secret Project ??

Second post of the day !!

Told you I was going to be like buses, don't see one for ages and then 2 come along at once !!

Hope you are enjoying all the secret projects by the team, even the team don't know what is coming up each day  !!

 My new release stamp is

"Candy and Balloons"

and I've made a "sneaky peek gift bag" using her !!

I've called it a sneaky peak gift bag as it has an acetate window so the birthday girl can get a sneaky peek at her prezzie inside !!

Hope you have made a cuppa and are sitting down as this is a looooong TUT !!

You can use any gift bag or make your own as I did from  a 12" x 12" piece of pattern paper. There are loads of tutorials to be found on how to make a gift bag on YouTube.

Now to make the acetate window:

Print Candy and Ballons onto a piece of white card and colour in.

Lay a circle die over your image and draw with a pencil round the inside stopping where you touch your image.

Now cut out along the pencil line with a knife and round your image ( refer to photo )

Trim your white card to 1/4 " smaller than your gift bag and as big as you want top and bottom.

Cut a piece of lavender card 1/4 " bigger all round  than your white card with image on.

Lay the two pieces of card together leaving a 1/4" border showing all round and draw through and round the inside of the window upto the image.

Remove the white card, line up your circle die with your pencil line and cut out so you have a window in the white card as well as the lavender.

Glue two pieces together.

Now lay the card onto your gift bag where you want it and do the same, draw round the inside of the window with a pencil, lift card off, line up circle die on gift bag and draw round outside of die.

Put a piece of thick card inside your gift bag so you can cut out the circle with a knife.

Now glue the lavender and white card onto gift bag.

Cut a piece of acetate to fit window and glue inside gift bag.

To finish off I printed off the balloons again and cut them out so I could decoupage them up.

Now all you need is to add your sentiments !!

Well done if you have made it to the end of this !!
