Botanical Gardens Paper Bag Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Botanical Gardens Paper Bag Tutorial

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Botanical Gardens Paper Bag Tutorial

Love it! The paper that is. And the dies!

Botanical Gardens is a suite that I’ve taken my time loving and I will be honest and say that die cutting isn’t something that I do hugely often. Mostly because my Big Shot lives under my desk and I forget to remember it’s there!

But I’ve been totally inspired by the beautiful projects doing the craft rounds right now that are using the framelits and I wanted to show them off!

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Botanical Gardens Paper Bag Tutorial Framelits

The bag is simple to make and I deliberately put black on it as I wanted to show off the flowers but not totally compete with the paper for attention. I think the two things compliment each other very well.

So, enjoy the video, bloopers and all *must remember to place dies in the right way up in future*
