Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Painted Blooms Bag Tutorial
So we all have that paper in our stash. The one that is so beautiful, you can’t bear to cut into it… Yes that one. The one you take out, look at, admire, then put away because you can’t bear to cut into it.
I have it too.
But I was determined that I was going to use the sheet from the Painted Blooms pack that everyone loves, but no-one uses.
And when I was at a craft weekend a few weeks ago, I spent some time coming up with project ideas.
This one I knew how I wanted to overall look to be, but as I was pondering to myself (quite probably muttering too), about how to close it, my friend Suzette piped up that I should simply put a band of ribbon around it.
Well that caught me immediately and I said to her that when someone comes up with an idea that I use, and make sure to mention their name. I laughingly said that in my head it would now be known as ‘Suzette’s Bag’ and when I wrote out the instructions, that’s exactly what I called it, so that’s why the video is now called that!
So on with the show, it’s a simple project – takes 7 minutes, including chatter and natter, and boy does it showcase that paper!
I hope you like it!
