Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Bunny Hop 2019 – Sweet Treat Bag
Welcome to the second project in this year’s Bunny Hop series. Today I have a mini bag made from Gingham Gala DSP and decorated using the Best Bunny Bundle to share with you.
These sweet treat bags only use a 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP, so are perfect for the 6″ x 6″ Gingham Gala DSP pack. You’d be able to make 40 of these from one pack and as they’re a very simple design are quick to make as well.
I used mini binder clips (non Stampin’ Up!) to close the bags this time, these are readily available from most Newsagencies or stationery supply shops and there are some on the Australian Clearance Rack as well. However, you could simply staple them, use mini pegs, paperclips or any of the clips currently available from the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue instead 🙂
To decorate the front of my bags I stamped the larger bunny from the Best Bunny stamp set and coloured it using the same Stampin’ Blends Markers as my previous project and then punched it out with the coordinating Bunny Builder Punch.
TIP: I highly recommend making a template using the punch first, lining up your stamps in the negative spaces and then adhering them to a block or your Stamparatus. This makes it so much easier to punch out afterwards.
I wanted a little background for my bunny so die cut some of the Share What You Love DSP with the second smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and cut it in half to create a hill and popped up my bunny with dimensionals on top.
The sign the bunny is holding was die cut using the Up & Away Thinlits, but you could just trim cardstock to approx. 3/4″ x 1/2″ for the same result. The sentiment is one from my stash (Lawn Fawn – Chirpy, Chirp, Chirp), but any small sentiment would do 🙂 I glued the paws to the sign and then popped this element up as well.
I die cut the coordinating cardstock for each bag with the 3rd smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, scored and folded it in half and clipped it on with a mini binder clip. A little bow of Polka Dot Ribbon dress them up a little and disguise the fact that my clips aren’t all the same 😉
Here’s the How To:
Finished Dimensions: 1-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ x 1-1/4″
DSP: 6″ x 6″
- Score @ 1-1/2″, 2-3/4″, 4-1/4″ & 5-1/2″
- Turn 90º
- Score @ 1-1/4″
- Fold & burnish all score lines
- Cut 1-1/2″, 2-3/4″, 4-1/4″ & 5-1/2″ score lines to the first horizontal score line to form base
- Remove the small rectangle from side tab
- Add adhesive to the side tab and base sections
- Assemble as usual
This little bag is the perfect size to hold one of the small Nestle figurines filled with mini Smarties, a generous handful of mini eggs or a few of the standard ones. I’m sure there are lots of non-edible treats that would fit as well, like Lego minifigs, tiny craft kits or small stationery supplies.
I’ve included a picture in this post with today’s project next to last week’s to give you an idea of the difference in size. I’m loving how this year’s projects are turning out, they all look so sweet together 🙂
I have to apologise again for my scary looking supply list, but please don’t think you need all these things to make this project, all you really need are a pretty paper, something to embellish with and a way to close your bag. I’ve been gathering supplies for several years now so have quite a large range to choose from, but you can make gorgeous things with much less, just use what you have and use this idea as inspiration 🙂
