Gift Bag Tutorial with Xyron and DCWV

Saturday, June 20, 2015

Just call me "The Gift Whisperer"! I am constantly dressing up plain gift bags and boxes.

Take this one for instance! I prettied it up using fun products from both Xyron and DCWV!

First I started with the DCWV Projects Stencils & Flowers packs. These are new stacks that can make numerous projects.

I also used the new Xyron Creative Station and the Xyron Sticker Maker.

There are several steps needed to recreate my gift bag. First, I placed one of the DCWV stencils over white cardstock. I sprayed it with Heidi Swapp's Gold Color Shine. Set it aside to dry. 

Next, I cut the DCWV patterned paper to fit over the front of my kraft bag.

I then used the DCWV Flower Stack. Use the "cut #1" petal template. Cut out two flowers.

After the stencil dries cut the top piece off and run it through the Xyron sticker maker. Wrap that piece around the top of your kraft bag.

Next, run your DCWV patterned paper and a doily through the Xyron Creative Station. Peel off the backing and adhere both to the front of your bag. 

I then used a mini clothespin to add a Project Life card on top of the doily.

Now it's time to add your flowers. Be sure to only run one of your DCWV flowers through the Xyron Sticker Maker. The other will be placed on top using a pop dot. Add a shiny gem to the center of your flower.

Now you are all done and ready to make someone smile!

Don'tcha just love handmade gifting?
