Birthday Wishes Mini Bag with Confetti Wishes Paper
This adorable mini bag was created with the Confetti Wishes Paper Packet and the “Lovely Birthday” stamp set. The bag itself was made from only 1 sheet of 12″ x 12″ Confetti Wishes patterned paper! It may look like more, but remember, CTMH patterned papers are double-sided, which means that the purple confetti paper and the striped paper that you see are 2 sides to the same sheet of paper!
Okay, you think that you got me on the sentiment strip on the top…. you know, the one that reads, “The Presents,” “The Cake,” “The Party”? Surely, that must have come from somewhere else? Nope! That’s the zip strip from the top of the 12″ x 12″ piece of patterned paper! I simply cut it off the paper, cut it in half, and adhered the pieces to the front and back of the bag.
Take a closer look at the back, side, and another front view of the mini bag…
I used super strong tape runner glue for an instant bond to hold the project together. The Black Striped Twill Ribbon was used as the handles and was attached with Glue Dots – 2 large dots per each side of handle. Although I wouldn’t recommend putting anything overly heavy in this bag, it is sturdy enough for lighter items. To make the handles even stronger, you could always punch holes in the top and thread them through for a super strong hold.
For the artwork on the front, I used the “Lovely Birthday” stamp set to stamp the leaves in Lagoon ink and the sentiment in Thistle ink. They were stamped onto White Daisy cardstock and mounted about 3/4 of the way onto Lagoon cardstock.
The surrounding flowers were stamped in Canary, Pixie, and Thistle inks onto White Daisy cardstock. I fussy cut them out, adhered a couple of them to the bag, and slightly popped the other 2 off the bag with Thin Foam Tape. To finish it off, I used Gold Shimmer Trim and Gold Sequins!
