Good Morning! Today I am sharing a video that I did yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. The Stampin’ Up! All Dressed Up dies set has dies to make the cutest little tote bags!
Here’s the Facebook Live video showing how to make this cute little tote bag:
I also posted the video to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.
In the video I show how I made the tote bag. I die cut two of the bag dies using two sheets of the Best Dressed designer series paper. I cut two of the handle dies from the Stampin’ Up! All Dressed Up dies from Blackberry Bliss card stock. I cut a pocket die from Blackberry Bliss card stock and two of the buckle dies from Daffodil Delight card stock.
I used Tear & Tape on the side flaps and adhered the sides together, pressing real good. I added Tear & Tape to the pocket and adhered it to the front and added the die cut heart with multipurpose liquid glue. I used Tear & Tape to secure the bottom. I slipped a buckle on each end of the Blackberry Bliss straps and used glue dots to secure the straps/buckles to the tote bag.
These are the 3×3 note cards that I made to go in the tote. I made card bases with a 3×6 panel of Whisper White card stock scored at 3″ and decorated them with various scraps of card stock, ribbons, designer series paper and embossing folders. I used small dies to use up the last bits of paper and create accents for the cards. I squared off various panels of the remaining Best Dressed scraps and used them along with coordinating scraps of matching card stock. In this case I used Blackberry Bliss and Purple Posey cardstock, the Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder, along with the butterfly from the Well Written dies and the stitched heart from the Stitched Labels dies. And I stamped sentiments in some of the open white spaces. Each note card is different with the common theme of the DSP used in the bag. And the nice thing is that the note cards can be used for any occasion. Plus it is so cute!!
These are the note cards I made for the sample tote. For these I used Blackberry Bliss and Daffodil Delight card stock. The sentiment is from the Dressed to Impress stamp set.
The Stampin’ Up! All Dressed Up dies are part of the Dressed To Impress bundle at a 10% discount. The totes are perfectly sized to hold 3×3 note cards and I made my own, but the Best Dressed suite also has the cutest 3×3 note cards with coordinating envelopes that you could use instead. The totes are also perfect for holding party favors and you can use a card stock color that coordinates with your party theme. I don’t think it matters what they hold, the person who receives them will think they are so cute, they will love them no matter what. I hope you get a chance to have fun making them.
