It’s Gail Linder here with you today to share a fun summer project using a variety of Core’dinations Cardstock!
Where I live in Queensland (Australia) we have a very long and hot summer. Needless to say my kids get invited to lots of pool parties over these months! Below I’ve created a fun bag and tag set that is sure to suit the feel (and color scheme) of any pool party!

Wave Border Set cut file
To create the look of waves for the front of the bag, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut six wave strips out of light aqua card which I then backed in a darker blue color to make them really stand out.
To add even more texture to the waves, I ran the strips through my paper crimper before adhering them behind. A quick sand to reveal the lighter core and I LOVE the effect! Check our Corrugate It video here on how to do this.
A few fun embellishments and a colorful banner across the top completed my decorated gift bag front!
Since I have the waves and water, all we needed was some sunshine so I created a tag to go with it, inspired by the sun!
To create this bright 3-D sun, I simply cut strips from different shades of yellow cardstock to fold over and layer. You can see that I ran some strips through my paper crimper also for even more texture, and also to tie in with the bag!
