Made at SU class, we did a set of cards suitable for men.

I know a lot of card-makers say they struggle with masculine cards. I think we are perhaps just drawn to girly stuff when we are browsing for stash and ignore the dull blokey things!

Another rainbow

Similar to the last one but changed the sentiment and added some faux stitching.
Not sure how else to use the die really.
The only thing I can think is to put it through an embossing folder but the rainbow is always going to be the focal point isn't it? So maybe a bit limited, dunno...

I love rainbows so could not resist this Die-namics die. Sentiment printed on computer.

Gift Bag

Made at SU class. The snowflake stamp was triple-embossed so is a nice chunky disc.

To match the gift bag on the previous post.

No tutorial or measurements for this one as it's not needed. I worked it out by eye and it's just a piece of cardstock folded into three with the sides taped down.

It holds a packet of coffee sachets.
I think there are three in the pack and cost about £1.40 in Tesco. Sometimes I like to post not-quite-a-gift things in with my Christmas cards.

Eyelets are also SU and ribbon is from Tesco.

Gift Bag

I posted a link the other day to a free tutorial for making a gift bag. The bags use a sheet of 12 x 12 and are very easy to do.

They're not quite wide enough for a DVD (which was my first thought) so I had a quick look in the supermarket whilst doing the weekly shopping to see what would fit.

The height is perfect for these bubble baths, also Cadbury's chocolate bags.
Handily these were on offer at Tesco so I thought I should buy some, just for your benefit you understand.
So you could see they fit the gift bag. Not because I wanted to eat them, no.

The Twirl ones are delicious ;)
