Moving on with my sneak peek projects, today I am going back to the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. The Lily Impressions 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper is simply stunning and I couldn’t resist making a gift bag with it. Today’s bag though comes with a fold-over top simply held in place with strong twine. It is about the paper after all…
SIZES AND DIMENSIONS
The finished bag is 6-1/4″ tall by 4″ wide and 1-3/4″ deep, with a 2″ fold-over flap.
To start I cut the paper down to 10″ high by 12″ wide. Then with the long side at the top I scored at 4″, 5-3/4″ 9-3/4″ and 11-1/2″. Finally I turned the paper and with the short side at the top scored it at 1-3/4″ and 8″.
To better explain the whole process and how I put the bag together I created this short video.
It’s a really simple bag to make, but because of the fold-over flap be careful when choosing paper with an obvious direction to the pattern. Once you fold the flap over, the pattern on the flap will appear upside down. Not a huge problem for me today, but just something to bear in mind.
As promised in the video here’s a neater version of the diagram so you can make your own custom-sized bag.
After I’d finished filming I grabbed my Detailed Trio Punch and rounded the corners on the flap.
LILY IMPRESSIONS DSP AND MORE!
The Lily Impressions 12″ x 12″ DSP will only be available during the Sale-A-Bration promotion (January 3rd to March 31st). What’s more you won’t be able to buy it, only get it for FREE. To do this you’ll need to place an order for $60 CAD (before shipping and taxes). Then you can choose this paper pack or any of the other Level 1 items from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration Brochure. With a $120 CAD order you can choose from some higher value Level 2 choices as well.
Among the other Sale-A-Bration choices is the Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set (Level 1), and the coordinating Lily Pad Dies (Level 2). I don’t have these yet, but they are on my wish list. It’s likely that the paper will be very popular and could well run out before the end of the promotion so if you want it get it as early in the promotion as you can.
Here’s a closer look at the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper. I love how the sheets have the various waterlily designs on one side and on the other side are mostly single colours with brushstrokes.
I’ve lots more sneak peek projects to come so I hope you’ll join me again tomorrow.
