To begin my bags today, I first used the largest Stitched Egg Die from the set and cut it six times from some white cardstock. Once they were cut, I pulled three shades of three colours of cardstock and cut each layer of Fiori Egg from each of them. So the A die cut from the lightest shade, B die cut from the middle shade and C die cut from the darkest shade. One I had three layers of blue, purple and pink I adhered all three layers together using some liquid glue and then those three layers onto a white base.
Next, it was time to create the base of my bags. I took some white cardstock, cut them down to 1 1/4″ wide by 6 1/2″ long and then scored each long side at 1/4″. Then, using my bone folder I creased along the scored lines and added thin adhesive to each flap. I then cut some slits up to the score lines on both sides of the strips in the middle of each piece. Then, cutting out every other one to make the strip bend easier. Lastly, I cut small triangles from each of the four sides that were left untouched, so again they would bend easier. I removed the adhesive off each side and adhered it onto my egg layers. One side when on the plain white egg and then I adhered the pretty Fiori Egg on top of each of them.
Now that my bags were assembled, I took some fake grass and filled each of the goodie bags. Makes it look a little nicer when you add the eggs. For my sentiment, I took the Time To Celebrate stamp set and white heat embossed the ‘From All Of Us’ sentiment onto thin black strips. I then added foam tape onto the backs and adhered them onto my bags.
So that finishes up my goodie bags today, I hope you enjoyed. I love using dies in unexpected ways! Also, just wanted to add here that they don’t stand up well, obviously because they are round it’s hard for them to stand up and also, they are quite open at the top, so to resolve the eggs falling out, you could punch a hole at the top and add some twine through, that would probably help and also, these bags are only 3/4″ deep, if you wanted to make them deeper, you could to fit a larger egg or more eggs/gift in, but I just wanted them smaller, but really the possibilities are endless.
So thank you so much for stopping by and watching today, the video is linked above and I’ll catch you all next time!
