Challenge two for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog Birthday Palooza is to make a gift bag & card. This one uses some recycling (anybody have empty ribbon spools?) :-D It actually goes together surprisingly quickly too!
this type of round bag fits a bottle of wine perfectly:
leave the paper full size for a taller gift bag...)

2...make a round gift bag (from an old ribbon spool)
(#48 Gift Bag & Card)
The Cuttlebug team has made some
amazing things for this challenge!
(from a cardboard ribbon spool)
- an empty pool of ribbon
- strong double-sided tape
- Core'dinations Whitewash cardstock
- Provocraft embossing folders (Happy Birthday & Floral Fantasy); and a Cuttlebug Machine
Step 1) Trim the top & bottom rims off of a ribbon spool so that it is a squat cylinder.
Step 2) Trace it to cut 2 circles of cardstock to cover the hole & the writing on the ribbon spool.
:o) For a fun kids bag you could turn it into a shaker:
- Add one circle on the bottom of the spool
- Fill the spool (assuming it has a hole) with beans/whatever
- Add the second paper round to seal it
- Finish constructing the bag....
Step 3) Cut a piece of Core'dinations Whitewash cardstock (This ribbon spool is fairly large in diameter (3-1/2 inches) so it required the full length of the Core'dinations paper. I trimmed it to be 8-1/2 inches high, though, & covered the words with an extra strip of Core'dinations.
Step 4) Cover the sides of the ribbon spool in a strong double-sided tape & wrap the Core'dinations cardstock around it.
Step 5) Adhere the end of the cardstock down to finish the assembly.
Step 6) Emboss & sand strips of Core'dinations White wash to trim the bottom & top of the bag.
Since this is for a stampin' party, I'm gonna fill it up with stamping treats as a gift for the Bday gal (Hey, it would fit some rolls of ribbon perfectly, LOL.)
Thanks so much for visiting!
