Candy and Balloons

My new release stamp is
"Candy and Balloons"
and I've made a "sneaky peek
gift bag" using her !!

I've called it a sneaky peak gift bag as it has an
acetate window so the birthday girl can get a sneaky peek at her prezzie inside

You can use any gift bag or make your own as I did from  a 12" x 12" piece
of pattern paper. There are loads of tutorials to be found on how to make a
gift bag on YouTube.
Now to make the acetate window:
Print Candy and Ballons
onto a piece of white card and colour in.
Lay a circle die over your image and
draw with a pencil round the inside stopping where you touch your image.
cut out along the pencil line with a knife and round your image ( refer to
photo )
Trim your white card to 1/4 " smaller than your gift bag and as big as
you want top and bottom.
Cut a piece of lavender card 1/4 " bigger all round
than your white card with image on.
Lay the two pieces of card together
leaving a 1/4" border showing all round and draw through and round the inside
of the window upto the image.
Remove the white card, line up your circle die
with your pencil line and cut out so you have a window in the white card as
well as the lavender.
Glue two pieces together.
Now lay the card onto your
gift bag where you want it and do the same, draw round the inside of the window
with a pencil, lift card off, line up circle die on gift bag and draw round
outside of die.
Put a piece of thick card inside your gift bag so you can cut
out the circle with a knife.
Now glue the lavender and white card onto gift
Cut a piece of acetate to fit window and glue inside gift bag.
To finish
off I printed off the balloons again and cut them out so I could decoupage them
Now all you need is to add your sentiments !!

Well done if you have made
it to the end of this !!
