No Glue Stitched Darling Bag

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – No Glue Stitched Darling Bag

Spin it, then Pin it!


Squeeee!!! Yes, I’m a bit excited about today’s project… It was a happy accident (I was going for something else) and this was the result. You gotta love that right?

I love how this has all quite literally pulled together and I adore that you can pull it as tightly closed as you want depending on what you’ve got inside. Clever clever!

Because it’s the build and design of this bag that’s the star here, I have kept the decoration to an absolute minimum with just a slip of ribbon to stitch it closed and a little square of DSP on either side in matching colours.

I have visions of a line of these in rainbow colours on a craft fayre table. I think that could draw attention to your table for sure!

Have a super Wednesday everyone, wherever you are!

    Darling bag indeed. I don’t know how you come up with all of these wonderful ideas for bags and boxes, great imagination. I was wondering if you only threaded the ribbon on both sides of the designer paper if it would still close the same way. Just inquiring 🙂 Thanks so much Sam for sharing your beautiful projects. I love recreating them for family and friends.

  8. Very sweet little bag. So unique, just love it!
    Thanks for sharing this with us.

    Thank you for another adorable project. My grandson & I have been making them this afternoon, because he loves to craft at Mimi’s. This will probably be my swap for our next group meeting.

  10. Ik like this box very much. What measurents would you use to fit a gift card inside of a similar box? It tried, but gave up after several tries. I could not get it wide enough and still have enough height to close the box.

  11. Love it.
    Thanks for sharing.
