Today’s project combines Stampin’ Up! with my other passion Scentsy. A recent discovery for me but I just love these bars of wax so much and wanted to make a little bag to put one for a gift….if I can bare to part with them!
Taking inspiration from many of the bags over at http://www.pootles.com I came up with this bag which comfortably fits one bar of wax in.
To start with I took a piece of DSP measuring 10.5″ x 8″ and scored on the long side at 4″, 5″, 9″ and 10″
I also did two score lines at 4.5″ and 9.5″ down to 7″
For the short side I scored at 1″ and 7″
So you should have something like the photo below
Next cut away the two small rectangles on the 10″ score line, shown above in cross-hatch.
Burnish all score lines with bone folder, except the two vertical score lines which stop at 7″
Cut upto the 7″ score line from the bottom on each vertical line and then create notches as shown in the photo below.
Next turn the paper over and run adhesive along the top 1″ section and fold it over, so its looks like the photo below.
Add adhesive along the thin strip at 10″ and three of the bottom sections. Fold into a bag shape sticking the sides first.
Fold in the two small sections with adhesive and fold the third on top. Finish by folding in the section with no adhesive. Now ready to decorate.
To decorate my bag I stamped two of the large daisies from Daisy Delight in Calypso Coral and punched them out with the daisy punch and stuck them together slightly offset. I then cut out the largest squared from the Stitched Shape Framelits in Whisper white and the second largest Scalloped Square from the Layering Square Framelits in Calypso Coral.
I layered all of these elements up and stuck them onto my bag. Then final step was to add one of the large Gold Faceted Gems to the centre of the daisy. I really love how this cute little bag turned out and if you don’t have any Scentsy bars it fits four of our notecards and envelopes in perfectly.
Here is the finished project
