For the Card:

Apply iCraft adhesive to a piece of scrap cardstock and then die cut a frame from it.


Peel back the top protective sheet and cover the adhesive with white embossing powder. Heat set the powder using an embossing tool, then ink the edges.


Apply Glitter Dust Photo Corners to the frame. Add 3D Adhesive Squares to the back of a Title & Phrases die cut, and adhere to the center of the frame.


Tie trims around the bottom of the frame and adhere frame to a card base using more 3D Adhesive Squares.


Stamp sentiment onto a small jewelry tag. Tie tag with string and silver bells and adhere tag to bow using Zots Adhesive Dots. Add a tab die cut to the top of the frame. Staple in place.


For the Gift Bag:

Cut a 12″ x 8.5″ piece of patterned paper. Using a Scor-Pal or bone folder, score the long side at 3.25″ and 8.75″. Turn the paper on its side and score at 1″. Trim away the small flap pieces, as shown.


Flip the paper to the backside and apply 1/2″ SuperTape to the edge of one of the side flaps and the bottom flap. Cut a fancy edge across the top using decorative scissors, if desired.


Adhere the side flaps first, then fold up the bottom tab and secure.

Add strips of patterned paper to the front of the gift and tie with trims and bells. Add banners to the gift bag using 3D Adhesive Squares. Tuck tissue paper and a die cut journaling card into the bag.

* Note: edge all paper pieces with ink, if desired.
