Sister Stamps Release #13 - Meet Li-Li

Hello there!  It's day one of my projects for Sister Stamps Release #13 and this is Li-Li!  She is so sweet carrying panda and it reminds me of a friend I had as a kid.  My favorite stuffed panda kept me company and listened to many of my stories as well as my dreams and secrets. This image brings back so many memories.

The project I want to share with you was inspired by an idea I saw at a local packaging store. I love this variation of using a cellophane bag to create a fun favor.  I used the Sizzix Box #2 die to create the box and a 4" x 9" printed cellophane bag.  Below are the instructions.  Sorry the lighting on my photos aren't the best.  I decided to add photos at the last minute to hopefully make these instructions easier to understand.

Put your box in the cellophane bag and pleat it back and forth like an accordion.  Start closest to the box and work your way up.  This way, you get the pleats tighter to the box.
Tie a ribbon around the center.

Bring up the two sides of the fan and adhere it together with double stick tape. Tie your tag on to complete.

You can use any size box and cellophane bag. I discovered that boxes with flat tops work best because it allows the ribbon to stay tight for the fan effect.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the official Sister Stamps blog as well as this month's guest designer!

See you tomorrow for more Sister Stamps mania!
