Hi friends! Nichol here today with a trio of stenciled and embellished gift bags with monogrammed tags created by mixing and matching dies from several sets for these simple, yet elegant gift bags! These bags would be perfect for giving a gift card or other small, flat gift. Monograms are one of my favorite ways to customize a tag and the big, classic Bee Bold Alphabet fit the Gift Bag Card tags perfectly!
To watch the creation of these stenciled gift bags with monogram tags from start to finish, click HERE or watch below:
The Gift Bag Card die was used to die cut red cardstock for each bag. I cut two panels for each bag. The bags were stenciled with one of the Plaid Background Stencils and Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink. Once each side of the bag was inked, adhesive was applied to the tabs on one side of the bag and the gift bag was adhered together as shown.
Labels for the front of each bag were die cut from both black cardstock and white glitter cardstock using the Truly Great Friends Die. On the inside black cardstock rectangle sentiments from the Fa La La Stamp Set were stamped with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The “ho ho ho” sentiment from the Fa La La Dies was die cut from white glitter cardstock adhered to Fun Foam with Stick It Adhesive and adhered above the stamped and embossed sentiment.
The label was adhered to the front of the bag and both the black cardstock scallop frame and white glitter cardstock frame were adhered around the rectangle to finish the label.
The circle tag from the Gift Bag Card Dies was die cut from smooth white cardstock. Monograms were die cut from red glitter cardstock using the Bee Bold Alphabet Dies and adhered to each tag as shown. Holly leaves from the Threshold Card Dies were die cut from green cardstock and adhered to each tag. Red sequins finish the holly and berries next to each monogram.
Ribbon handles were added to each bag and the tags were tied to the handles with crochet thread. Each bag was finished with a “tissue paper” insert created by die cutting the Gift Bag Card die using woodgrain vellum.
