Butterfly Gift Bag created by OMC designer Whitney

Supplies Used:

Brown Gift Bag (Found at the dollar store. Shopping bags work great too! This bag is 8x10”) 

Martha Stewart : Large Punch Around The Page - Wild Flowers
Bo Bunny : Gabrielle Collection Pack 
Sizzix : Bigz Die - Fanciful Flight by Tim Holtz
Prima : Dechire Collection - Cream  
Bazzill Basics : Coral and Cream Cardstock
Scrapper’s Floss 
Tim Holtz : Crackle Paint - Rock Candy
Sizzix : Adhesive Sheets
Tim Holtz : Distress Ink Pad
We R Memory Keepers : Crop-A-Dile Tool


1. Cut background color 8x5 ½ inches and distress with ink. 
2. Cut coordinating color 8x5 ½ inches and starting with the corners then moving in, punch wildflowers out on top and bottom edge. Layer on top of background.

TIP - On the Martha Stewart Punches’ instructions are dimensions that you should cut the paper. If you don’t cut them at the right dimension, then the punches will not cut evenly. Wildflowers cut in 2” increments.

3. Cut strips 2 ½ x 8” and distress with ink. Adhere on top of project. 
4. Cut strip ¾ x 8” and adhere to project centered on other strip. 
5. Cut 3 strips of Scrapper’s Floss 10” and tape onto the back of the background paper then bring in front and back again, taping the other end to the back side of paper.  
6. Die cut butterfly and apply a thick coat of Tim Holtz Crackle Paint. Let Dry.
    - Make sure to cut mirror image of the wings.  
    - Tim Holtz Crackle Paint is heat sensitive, so to speed up the drying process use a heat gun or hairdryer. 

TIP - Apply Sizzix Adhesive sheets to the paper before die cutting so adhering is a breeze!

7. Adhere butterfly in the center over the floss  

8. Adhere project to front of bag 
9. Adhere Prima flower over butterfly.

Finish it off with a tag:

1. Adhere a sticker to paper and cut around sticker so you are left with an opened tag. Fold.  
2. Hole punch upper left corner. 
3. Pull one side of handle out of bag and attach tag.  
4. Tape handle back on so it is very secure.

Now that is a cool idea. Cutting the corner and just top and bottom of the border you can get many more measurements out of these punches. I love MS coordinating punches.
also, love this blog!!!
