Here is how I made this gift bag in a few easy steps!
1.) Emboss cardstock from Whitewash Collection, sand with Sand-It Gadget and wipe with Dust Buddy. Trim to fit front of gift bag and adhere.
2.) Punch two holes at top of bag using hole punch. Thread through ribbon and tie bow.
3.) Adhere paper doily. Die-cut butterfly from Tim Holtz and Ranger Distress Collection Spun Sugar cardstock, adhere to bag.
4.) Add sticker sentiment to tag. Attach tag to bag using paper cord. Add flower embellishment to finish.
Tip: When die cutting intricate dies always add a piece of wax paper between the die and your cardstock, it makes it much easier to remove from the die.

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!
here to share one of my favorite trees that graces our gardens each summer. We have a beautiful Wisteria tree that adds lovely color and texture to our backyard and I wanted to share that same idea on this layout.

I used Darice’s embossing folder “mask” to create this special cut out instead of using one of your sandwich plates, you can select areas that you don’t emboss.
To the left is the sandwich (minus the paper) and to your right is the resulting effect. I chose to “fill” the hole with another piece of embossed BlackMagic that I cut using the embossing mask to trace the oval. The result is less raised as you put embossed cardstock on flat cardstock (as opposed to two layers of embossed paper).
There is a lot of depth to this card with the fireworks really coming at you! I only adhered the center of the die cut firework sprays thus enabling me to use my finger nail to curl out the “arms”. A little Stickles adds to festivities!

2. Take your hexagons and using about three different embossing folders emboss your hexagons. Then you will sand them with your Sand It Gadget and dust them off with your Dust Buddy.
3. Run all your hexagons through your Xyron machine and place on your white card base.
4. Tie ribbon below your hexagons and add a tag with your sentiment.
