Stars, Stars, and more Stars!!

We have a few cats with this "don't talk to me" attitude!  lol....
Hi, Friends......

I am back with another project that I made for the Winnie & Walter August Color Combo Challenge. Look at the wonderful color palette Heather chose this month:

This time I made a card and coordinating gift bag. I recently purchased the We R Memory Keepers - Gift Bag Punch Board. I love it! The maximum width of the gift bags it makes is less than 4 inches, but you can make them as tall as you wish. They are plenty big enough for small gifts and treats.

I also had lots of fun using my Winnie & Walter - True Multifaceted Star Cutaways die set for this gift set. 

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - True Multifaceted Star Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Happy Cutaway dieWaffle Flower - On My Mark stamp set
Versafine Ink - Black Onyx
We R Memory Keepers - Gift Bag Punch Board
Ribbon from my stash

Hope you enjoyed seeing my projects. I love that making gift bags also helps me to use some of my larger scraps!!

Thank you for stopping by!!!

  3. EEk! I think I need those star dies now! What an absolutely fun gift set...and a great way to use more paper scraps. This is such a clever interpretation of the color inspiration and just full of color. That gingham bag with the orange ribbon is a double bonus (two types of supplies in one!). You're really inspiring me here with these wonderful, colorful projects.
    Oh, and the row of cats with cattitude are darling (and they know it).

  4. Fun gift bag! I love the pattern and the fun stars. Thanks for sharing with us at CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge!

  5. Now this is just so darn cute. I need to use some of my papers to make party favor bags for my daughter's birthday party in October. I don't have a Punch board but I'm sure I can find a template somewhere online. I really love the colors!
