Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper Gift Bag

Today’s project is using Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper to create a cute gift bag with a butterfly keeping the flap closed on the gift bag.
I used the Gift Bag Punch Board and a few other Stampin’ Up! tools to create this fun gift bag.  Below are the measurements & instructions along with a video showing how to assembly the gift bag.

You are going to love how easy this gift bag is to make with a sheet of Designer Series Paper. July is the perfect time to stock up with the Designer Series Paper Special… buy 3 & get 1 FREE!!! (click here for more details on the special)

*Note: The below photos are showing a gift bag made with Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and Copper Foil Sheet (142020) as the print is less busy for instruction photos.

 ♥  Designer Series Paper: 11 x 11
 ♥  Gold Foil Paper:  2-1/4 x 4 (for one butterfly), 4 x 6 (for three butterflies)
 ♥   Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet:  same size as Gold Foil
 ♥  Vellum Cardstock:  2 x 4 (for one butterfly)


1.    Follow instructions on Gift Bag Punch Board to create the bottom of a medium gift bag by punching and scoring per instructions (also shown in video below).

Note: With Designer Series Paper at ‘Start Line’ the first score line should be at the ‘M’ mark.

2.    Score top edge of Designer Series Paper at 3″.  Crease all score lines from bottom of bag to top of bag.

3.    Using Gift Bag Punch Board punch top edge in two places: the edge of the Designer Series Paper you started with & the first score line at the ‘M’ mark.

4.   Cut off the other sections of the 3″ top as shown in photo.  

5.  Carefully fold top flap in half and pinch to create a crease in the center. Line Classic Label Punch along top edge and center of flap (use crease marks as a guide).


6.  Add adhesive to 1/2″ section on side of bag (top side of designer series paper) to create bag.  Add adhesive to bottom side of flap as shown in photo below to create gift bag

Note: For instructions purposes I’m using Tear & Tape.  For gift Bags made with Designer Series Paper you can use SNAIL Adhesive; for Gift Bags made with Cardstock I would highly suggest Tear & Tape Adhesive.  




7.  Add Multipurpose Adhesive sheet to back side of Foil Sheet.  Cut butterfly using Butterfly die from Springtime Impressions Thinlets and Big Shot.

8.  Take Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet backing off of one Butterfly wing and place on Vellum Cardstock on wing only (not on body of butterfly).  Cut vellum along wing.  Repeat for other butterfly wing. Be sure not to put vellum on body of butterfly.





9.  Place Butterfly body in Classic Label Punch opening on top portion of the bag.  Press hard between thumb and index finger to help adhesive stick and to secure Butterfly in place.


Note: Be sure the bottom of the Butterfly Wings are above the Classic Label Punch opening as shown in photo.






10.  Embellish with Basic Pearls.
