Wedding Gift Bags

Hello We R fans, and welcome to Wedding Week! With the beautiful warm weather here we know some of you are planning weddings this summer, or will be attending them. This week is all about wedding ideas, from gift wrap, to decor, to favor ideas and more. Get ready to pin some fun ideas to your wedding Pinterest board!

Hi! It’s Aly here today to share a decorative gift bag idea with you. These sweet little bags would work perfectly for smaller gifts, gift cards with treats, or favor bags for wedding guests. I used my Gift Bag Punch Board to make these, and then took them to the next level by punching the edges with my 2 Edge Punch.

Once I completed my gift bags, I added a ribbon closure, and some beautiful layered tags and ephemera pieces from the Wildflower collection. I love how the gold foil accents add some elegance to them.

Using the Template Studio, I created two basic gift boxes from kraft color poster board. I placed my gifts inside, closed the box flaps, and then made some decorative wraps for them.

I cut some fringe into 6×12 Tissue Sheets using the Fringe and Score Board, added a couple strips of cardstock, and then made some fun bow ties using the Fringe and Score Board.

This DIY gift box is a unique way to package just about any gift or goody for any occasion. You can use whatever color or style of paper you’d like depending on the event. All you need for this project is a sheet of plain 12×12 cardstock, an acetate sheet and ephemera from the Clearly Posh collection, a thin metal die (basic shapes are best), paper for the bow, and the 123 Punch Board. Watch the video below to learn how to make one for yourself!

Heat Wave Scrapbook Layout | Video Tutorial

Hi there, We R fans! How are you liking Heat Tool Week so far? It’s Aly here with you again today to share a Heat Wave scrapbook layout and a video tutorial. With the Heat Wave Pen you can add shimmer and shine to your projects by handwriting foil accents.  You can freehand your foil accents, or you can use the Heat Wave Stencils we sell separately. Check out the layout I created below with the new Wildflower collection.

I used the Heat Wave Pen to create a title tag for my scrapbook page. Since the Wildflower collection includes lots of blues, I decided to use the blue foil. I love how it turned out!

I shot a project video showing how to create this title tag recently. You can check it out below.

Thanks for letting me stop by today and share this fun Heat Wave project with you. Stay tuned for more Heat Tool inspiration this week. Enjoy!

Hello We R fans! I’m Aly Dosdall, your blog hostess here today. Are you enjoying our 30 Days Of Evolution so far? I hope so, and I hope you’re finding some helpful project inspiration.

I’ve got a fun die cut window card to share with you that I created with my Evolution Advanced, the Gem Dies, and some new embossing folders that you’ll hear more about next week called Gemstone Next Level Embossing Folders.

What’s so cool about this project is that the gem die cut sits in a window that let’s you see the inside of the card.
