Trim the Tree Cafe Bags

Trim the Tree Cafe Bags

The Petite Cafe Bags in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog are a perfect size for giving someone a stack of holiday cookies or other treats.  Here is an idea on how to decorate the bag by cutting a window in the front and covering the bag with some Designer Series paper.

cafe-bagI used a piece of Trim the Tree Designer Paper from the paper stack and cut it to fit the front of my bag.  The strip that was left is what I used to cut the stars – they just show the pattern on the other side.  You will also need a piece of window sheet to cover the hole that you cut in the front.

  • I used the Star framelits to cut my shape in the front.
  • Go ahead and attached the bottom of the designer paper to the front of the bag.
  • Slip the star framelit inside the bag with the cutting blade facing up towards the front of the bag.
  • Place the bag between two cutting plates and run through the Big Shot – use either the magnetic platform or the multi-purpose platform set to the correct tab.
  • Cut a square piece of Window Sheet to be bigger than the star but not wider than the designer paper – lift the designer paper up and attach the window sheet between the paper and the front of the bag to cover the hole.
  • Then glue the designer paper to the rest of the front of the bag.
  • Add a little greeting to the front – punched out with the Modern Label punch.  And a tiny punched star.
  • Tie some Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the top – I tied it below where the bag flap closes – then I can undo the flap and slide off the twine to fill or empty the bag without untying it.
  • At the ends of the twine I sandwiched it with some stars cut with the small star framelit.  They just hang.

Fill the bag with cookies, puffy peppermints, or something else fun to give to a teacher, neighbor, hostess or friend.

Under the Tree Gift Box and Tags

Under the Tree Gift Box and Tags

As Christmas approaches – quickly, very quickly – you may need some packaging ideas.  I used one sheet of 12×12 Under the Tree Specialty Designer Paper to create this gift box and 3 tags.

box-and-tagsUse the Gift Box Punch board to create a box from a 10 x 10″ piece of the thick printed Kraft paper – it’s the Under the Tree paper and perfect for boxes.  The 2″ pieces left over are what I used to make the tags and punch the trees.

christmas-boxThe box is tied with a piece of Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon.

For the tags – cut the tops with the Scallop Tag Topper punch.  I used the corner rounder punch on the bottom corners.  For the tops add a piece of the Cherry Cobbler Ribbon and tie it with a piece of Linen Thread.  To decorate the tags – add a punched tree.  Finish with a star and the word window punch using one of the greetings from the Festival of Trees stamp set.

christmas-tagsQuick and cute for the holidays!

Wednesday Ryan will be coming home!  Kyle is already here he came in last Thursday about midnight.  I’m so excited to have all the boys home.  It’s not easy having them so far away.  It will be Ryan’s first time to fly alone – and of course it is the busiest day of the year at the airport.  I think I may be just a little stressed tomorrow until I have him in my car!
