Gift Bag Set - Hampton Art Stamps

Happy Monday, Blogger Peeps! I have some July fun for you today!

Hampton Art Stamps is having an AMAZING
on Friday, July 29th!
1. Check the Hampton Art Stamps Blog DAILY to see the awesome Christmas inspiration.

2. Keep your eyes out for a few “non-Christmas” projects that sneak their way into the mix. {HUGE HINT...PAY ATTENTION...}

3. Thursday, July 26th email us with at least 2 different days that you didn’t see us in the Christmas spirit and you will be entered for a chance to win one of our 3 goody boxes full of Hampton Art, Ki Memories, Graphic 45, and Hot Fudge Studio Christmas stamps!!!

Are you paying attention?? My project for you today, once again uses the new Graphic 45 A Ladies' Diary papers! I love this new collection! (I hope you are not sick of it yet! And's NOT a Christmas project!)

I decorated a simple, brown paper gift bag and created a large tag as decoration. Easy and fast!

I covered all sides of the bag with printed paper. Then, I created a matching tag from lightweight chipboard, covered with printed paper. I stamped sentiment onto cream cardstock and attached to the tag.

The sentiment stamp is a Diffusion Artistamps sentiment called Friendship. I love these long, skinny stamps because they make great tags and bookmarks. I used a chipboard element for a to/from label.

The leftover scraps made a great gift card holder! Trim cardstock to 8x4 inches and fold in half. This is the perfect size to hold a standard gift card. Decorate the front with paper and stamps, then use a Glue Dot to attach the gift card to the inside. EASY!

It is easy to change the paper collection and create Christmas-themed items. Give it a try and see what you come up with!
