A Clutch of Bags !!!


Today I would like to show you all of the gift bags I made for the Headmaster, Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Cook, Dinner Ladies and Secretaries at my boys' school.  I have been busy for quite a few days getting these together !!!!

For the pretty gift bags I used a great Sizzix Die. 


Die - Suitcase Bigz XL Die by Sizzix
Card & Papers - Stampin' Up
Tiny Jewelry Tag Punch - Stampin' Up
Thanks So Much Stamp - Tiny Tags Stamps Set from Stampin' Up
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts

I made the satchels for the male teachers.  Aren't they fabulous?  I followed this fabulous TUTORIAL designed by Sarah B.  She really is amazing when it comes to designing 3D projects, her blog is well worth a visit.


Card - Stampin' Up
Name Plate - From Stampin' Up Hodge Podge Kit
Brown Ink - Stampin' Up
Ribbon & "D" Rings - Hobbycraft

I am entering these cute little gift bags into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Cutie Patootie
The Stamp Man Challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by.

Wow! These are AMAZING. Love the little suitcase bags, and the satchels are awesome. Even with a larger picture I can't believe these are made from card, they are just brilliant.

OMG! I'm worn out just looking at them, I can't imagine tackling a project like that, never mind making more than one. My hat is off to you! They sure look beautiful. As pretty as the little suitcases are, I think the satchels have them beat. I too can't believe they're made from cardstock, how genius! I'm going to have to check out the tutorial you mentioned just to see it come together. I'm so glad you shared them with us before sending them off. Once again, great job!
