My Creative Time: 43rd Release: Sneak Peeks Day #4

Hi, welcome to the 4th and final day of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time's 43rd Edition Release.  Today we are showcasing the fun new, "Chalkboard Birthday" stamp set. This set has so many fun birthday word art stamps that are great for all your birthday projects! Plus, it has a cute mini gift bag die! It is so adorable!


This project was so easy to put together in no time! It would be perfect for Made in Minutes. I just happened to have this pretty gift bag just sitting in my gift wrapping bin and thought it would be fun to upcycle it into this mini gift bag. 

I had to cut down the original bag into sections that would fit in my Cuttlebug. I then proceeded to cut out two of the mini gift bag parts using the new die from the "Chalkboard Birthday" set. I adhered them together and then ran the coordinating ribbon through the bag for the handles. 

I stamped on the word art sentiment onto a Vellum cut out  using Versamark ink along with Recollection's Snow embossing powder.  The Vellum rectangle cut out was cut using a die from the Love to Learn stamp and die set. I attached it to the bag using a couple of diamond brads. I cut a small piece of tissue paper I had on hand to put in it to give it the true look of a gift bag.

I stamped on another fabulous word art sentiment onto the Tag Gift Pocket that cut out of the same bag. Then I put in a crafty gift card to Michaels. It fits perfectly in the little bag! A cute way to give candies and gift cards!
