Fold Over Paper Bag Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles – Fold Over Paper Bag Tutorial

Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles - Fold Over Paper Bag Tutorial Wording Detail

Well I had a conversation with someone recently, and we were discussing when it’s appropriate to be frugal with crafting, and when it’s okay to bust the budget and use excess products.

Today, my bag uses DSP to abandon!!!

But I do really like how this one turned out. It’s not desperately essential to have such a large fold over part to a bag, but sometimes, it’s that extra bit that makes the difference.

I am also back in love with my old faithfuls, the DSP stacks. I stop and start with my usage of these.  I seem to have phases with no particular rhythym!!!

Do enjoy the video, I enjoyed making it on a very sunny morning!
