I was lucky enough to win a selection of prizes from Craft stash’s 5th Birthday card competition, where I entered a card covered in coloured Jelly Babies and Lollypops, photos of it are in the Sweet Treats post.
In these prizes, was something I had had my eye on for a while now and I was so grateful to get in as a prize. It was the Simply Made Crafts by Helen Griffin Backpack Gift Bag Die Set.
It is a collection of dies that form a Gift Bag/Box. I adore making these style of bags and having them to make a display or giving them away to friends and family. People who loved bags, adore these as they look so real. So when I saw these dies, I instantly turned on my Cut ‘n’ Boss and got to work.
I wanted to go with a Tropical theme, as I just had picked up the Papercrafter Magazine, which issue 148, had a free gift of stamps, embossing folder and papers. I love anything Tropical and I love Backpacks, so it felt right to put these together.
The Simply Made die sets, come with clear instructions so it was simple and straightforward to put together once I had die cut the pieces.
I embossed the panel on the front from yellow card, and coloured it with my Distress Oxide Inks, I used Carved Pumpkin, Cracked Pistachio and Picked Raspberry.
I love this bag and the die set is purely and simply magical.
Hope you are all well and staying safe.
