Sweet Gift Bag and Gable Box

Hello everyone, 
Today I wanted to share a couple of the bags and boxes I made for Valentine's Day last week. The two I'm sharing were made for my friend Jennette, and the gable box was made for my husband. I had also made another bag for my doctor and then another gable box for my Mom. I used lots of fun Really Reasonable Ribbon flowers, lace, leaves, stamens, and goodies on these boxes and bags.  I really just enjoyed making them to give away, it felt so good!

The bags, they were up in my cabinets.  You know, I had these for a long time, they were kinda flimsy, but after adding the good design paper around them they ended up being super sturdy and very very nice bags, strong enough to hold a heavy large chocolate candy kiss and several other items.

Adding Paper- after  gluing and using Scotch tape runner and 5/8" Scor-Tape (helps to keep paper on WELL)  to put my paper on, I added the beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon Gabrielle Off White Lace. I also used the beautiful Pearl Pink Delicate Satin Ribbon to create a beautiful big bow, then added the darling Strawberry Brownie Stitch grosgrain ribbon on top of that. I then made my glass flowers using Cheery Lynn's flower dies (my makersmovement) and placed an 8mm white flatbacked pearl in the center of it.

Cluster of flowers and dies-
So I cut out a heart filigree piece using shimmer card stock, then added my white swirls (Cheery Lynn) and placed my Really Reasonable Ribbon White Leaves, Chelsea Rose, Rose buds, Stamens, carnation, Sweetheart Blossoms and such by using hot glue. The CottageCutz Hedgehogs were colored using Copics and then placed using RRR foam tabs. I really had so much fun decorating up the bag here. I will link all supplies used below from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store.

For the Gable Box for my husband I used more of the Really Reasonable Ribbon supplies listed above but added all reds and browns to this one, and a tad of pink. I made him a cute little coupon book for a dinner out, movie out, free lawn mowing, and back rub :) also there are lots of chocolates in the box and a gift card. The rose was from the roses he had sent to me, I figured it would be nice in the photo.
I hope you enjoyed my post for today! Thank you for stopping by, and have a lovely rest of the week!


  1. Super cute gift boxes, and look at those adorable hedgies...I might even have those dies, isn't it terrible when you have so much you don't know what you have anymore? LOL

  2. Super wonderful and so very beautiful gift boxes. Great use of dies, pattern paper, flowers and beautiful ribbon.


We'd love to hear what you have to say
