Finished Gift Set

Well, I decided to go with the tote bag packaging. I thought it would be cute. So, these are what the gift sets will look like finished. Each set has 5 cards and envelopes inside. I think the people my husband is giving them to will really like them! I just hope they like the colors! Not everybody likes the whole brown/pink color combo! The ribbon I used for the handles is actually ribbon with an adhesive backing. It makes it REALLY quick to attach the handles instead of having to cut and apply sticky strip and then peel off the backing! The only thing you have to do is brush baby powder on the part of the handle that isn't attached to the bag. The baby powder makes the adhesive "unsticky". I picked some up at my local craft store a while ago and have only used it a couple of times. I keep forgetting I have it! :) On a side note, some of you have asked me what a One Sheet Wonder is and where to find one. A One Sheet Wonder is basically a pattern for cutting up a piece of cardstock so that you can use each of those pieces on a separate card. There are MANY different one sheet wonders, it just depends on who made it as to how many pieces it may have. This particular one I used was in the April Stampin' Success magazine and was for a 12x12 sheet of patterned paper. The paper was cut into 16 different pieces. Each piece went on a different card. I added other cardstock to layer the patterned pieces and focal pieces, but you don't have to. There is a whole gallery on SCS dedicated to One Sheet Wonders. Here is a link to an actual pattern that was posted in the forums. I hope I've answered your questions! Have fun trying it out! Thanks for visiting today!
