Paper Crafting Blog Hop -Bags & Tags

Welcome to the Paper Crafting Blog Hop! Our December 2022 blog hop includes Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world...including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia!  Get ready to be wowed by a variety of creative projects and design styles!  You may have arrived from Tracy's Blog...she had a great project!

Our projects this month focus on Winter Holiday themed projects.  I chose to feature bags and tags for last-minute gift packaging ideas!  Every year I make home-made peanut brittle and white chocolate chex mix.  Each year I'm looking for a fun way to package it up.  I grabbed some lunch bags and ran them through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine with an embossing folder.

The white bag features the Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder...and it's on sale for just $4 right now!  I also used the edging die from Scalloped Contours Dies for a cute topper edge.  I cut it and then folded it over.  The Designer Series Paper comes from the Host-Only DSP pack called Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.  The tag uses the Decorative Circle Punch and the Framed & Festive stamp set.  That stamp set is only available until January 4,'s one of my absolute favorites!

These close-ups show how nicely the paper bags get a beautiful texture from the embossing folder!

The brown paper bag features the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder.  I tied the ribbon a bit differently so you could hang it on a door for a Secret Santa gift.  And of course, I just HAD to add some Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins to both bags!  They are my FAVORITE embellishment!
