Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Fold Over Smooth Domed Bag Tutorial

Happy Monday everyone!

It’s been a rather nice weekend. Okay, a little wet, but you know, the sun has tried it’s best to shine!

My project today started off so well. The prototype I made was a little ‘rough and ready’ but I put it down to being the sample prototype. However, when I came to make the sample to show at the start of the video, I was very unhappy with the finish.

I decided that I was going to make a version with the thinner Whisper White in the video, but as I came to build it, I was still unhappy with the finish.

I ended up with the DSP version above, but I do believe in declaring full honesty, so I do show you the other 2 originals and how they turned out.

I hope that is useful information as I’d hate for someone to go ahead and make a cardstock version and trash their cardstock….

Anyway, as it stands, I’m more than happy with the end result and it was worth the problems beforehand!

I hope you enjoy the video!

    I really like the way this closes. “Nifty!” And punching around the heart is also a cool idea!

  4. Frani M. says:

    Ms. Pootles,
    The box (all of them) is beautiful. So you had a crease; remember it is handmade. You work so flawlessly and smoothly when making anything. Just go with the flow and keep those boxes coming (creases and all).

  5. Hi Sam, I love to watch your videos! Inspiring and entertaining. This gift bag is lovely (design and paper). Suitable for wedding.

  6. I love these, Sam… the shape suits the DSP perfectly!
