Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Bunny Hop – Tiny Totes
Today I have a cute little tote shaped bag to share with you made using the Gift Bag Punch Board and Sweet Soiree DSP as the fifth project in this year’s Bunny Hop. This project is a little more complicated than the previous ones, but isn’t difficult once you’ve made your first one.
I first saw these tote shaped bags on Pinterest and finally found a tutorial in English – google translate was not my friend 😦 If you haven’t made these before I highly recommend checking out this video by Val Moody of Stamping With Val , she explains how to make them extremely well 🙂
I’ve made two versions for today’s project, the left one uses a 5″ x 10″ piece of Sweet Soiree DSP and has a 1″ fold over band at the top. I really like the contrasting pattern and if you were using regular DSP would highly recommend this style to reinforce the holes.
The other bag uses a 4″ x 10″ piece of DSP and doesn’t have the contrasting band at the top. I prefer the one with the band, but this style means you can make three bags from one 12″ x 12″ piece of DSP instead of only two!
To decorate my bags I inked up one of the floral images from Label Me Pretty using assorted Stampin’ Write Markers to make it multi-coloured and punched it out with the coordinating Pretty Label Punch.
The bunny from Hello Easter was stamped in Soft Suede ink, fussy cut and popped up with dimensionals in between the flowers and looks right at home there 🙂
I added this to a scalloped oval die cut with the Layering Oval Framelits and then to the front of my bag with dimensionals.
These little bags measure 2-3/4″ to 4-1/2″W, 2-3/4″H & 2″D and can hold a stack load of goodies! They’d be the perfect sized table favour and are a good size if you have lots of children to give treats to, they hold a generous amount, but not too generous 😉
I’m sure you’ve noticed that I haven’t given you any instructions for today’s project, it’s a bit difficult to describe adequately without pictures, but I’ll have them up soon.
I hope you liked my project today, these little totes are one of my favourite projects so far. I really like their unusual shape at the bottom and how they hold themselves open so nicely at the top. Only one more project in this years’ Bunny Hop to go now and time for something a bit bigger I think, make sure you check it out next week 🙂
