Maritime Tag a Bag Gift Packaging- Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! We are working on to our first box from Stampin' UP with products from the Annual catalog. Every Thursday of each week for one full year, all 16 of us will post on our blogs an inspiring project for you! Be sure to get Google Translate so that you can read in your language all about how they created it. Now on to my project this week....
I have three wonderful nephews that currently live in Singapore and I have missed them so much! I have been collecting some goodies to send over for a belated birthday package and I could not just let them go there un-Stampin'UP at all! I had to come up with a packaging to hold all the goodies and be age appropriate for these 9 -11 year olds. In our box this month, was the Sea Street Stamp Set , Maritime Designer Series Paper, Age Awareness Stamp Set, the Tag a Bag Accessory Kit and the Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bags. Now it is crazy to think that I combined all of those products to make one project but I did and they are perfect for those boys!
To create the gift card pocket, I cut the DSP to 3 3/4" x 5" and used Fast Fuse Adhesive on three sides to secure in place on the bag. You add Fast Fuse Adhesive to the end of the tag and add the plastic Gift Card to it. I love the idea of the Tag a Bag clips to be the pull tab!
To get the HAPPY BIRTHDAY placed perfectly on the label, I placed the Photopolymer stamps together on a clear block and then used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp in place. So easy!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspire you today!
