Pootles' Stampin' Up! Sweet Dreams DSP Gift Bag Tutorial

Oh I just love it when I can take one DSP pack and turn it on it’s head!

The very lovely Sweet Dreams paper is most definitely aimed at new baby/baby shower crafting, however, I love it when I can make it look a little different!

I think the use of the Celebrate Today stamp set helped a lot with this project, as it’s often the sentiment that you attach to a project that gives it its theme…

  1. Than you so much for the new tip you’ve given us today. Both boxes are pretty. The one with the clouds reminds me the wallpaper from “Toy Story” movie ! LoL

  2. Cute bag Sam! Love the wide ribbon at the top!

  3. Love it, love it!!! It’s an easy box/bag to make, I love that wide ribbon to hold it closed, I think it looks so elegant, even for a baby’s gift. All the little details really stand out Sam, thank you for sharing.

  4. Love the bags but loved how you did the sentiments more. You’re always full of fresh new ideas and that keeps me coming back to your site. Thanks.
