Beautiful Stampin’ Up! Painted Autumn Triangular Gift Bag

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Beautiful Painted Autumn Triangular Gift Bag

Well, I have a confession to make. If you are a follower of my business page (here) you’ll know that I was filming this tutorial on Thursday and I was not having a good day! I managed to totally mess up the folding on the first filming attempt, then it worked. I then went on to mess up another video, so I decided to take some time out and just chill down. Well, that spawned an impromptu Live Broadcast where I chatted to everyone for a while, particularly about how I plan my time and get so much done. So you’re welcome to have a watch of that replay there too!

Anyway, I did resume filming and all was well, but this is the 2nd go at filming with a far better result!

Isn’t it lovely?

I really do struggle with the sunflower thing (my team tell me I’m not alone), but I do like to make myself use things that personally I wouldn’t go for. I know there are so many of you who Do love sunflowers, that I like to show them for you!

And while it looks to be a complicated closure, I promise you it’s not. This is the way to get a triangle bag that’s 8″ wide and 3″ deep….

So I hope you like it!

  2. Hi Sam – I’m in the US and yours is the first site I check out each day. Love all your projects and your directions are so easy to follow. I’m with you on the sunflowers! One sunflower on a card or box is fine, more than that is too many! HaHa Thank you for your honesty, warmth, and inspiration.

  3. It’s a great shape for a gift bag. I like the sunflowers 🙂

  4. I really feel very sad, that you don’t ship your products to India.
