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.
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!

I love making shaker cards because they're 3D and fun to fill with all sorts of things. But most of us know, they're a bit time consuming to make with the foam tape and all. My CBFF Jenny told me about these washi tape shakers and they're so fun and simple to make. I'm hooked and as you can see below, I went to town and made a few! You can find Julie Ebersole's video tutorial here.
I tried it in pink and red...
...and purple, too!
Give it a try - you'll find them addicting, too!

Here is a simple gift card made from an adorable SU set called A Fitting Occasion. This set has the most adorable elements that can easily be layered. I love all the different possibilities and with SU's "in colors" of ink and cardstock, it made playing with the color combos a lot of fun.
These 3"x3" cards are simple to make and make my heart sing!
Here's another sample
Have a great day!
