Hi Friends! This is Abby with ScrappinAbby. For this project, I had the pleasure of working with the amazing papers from Graphic 45. Using the gorgeous French Country collection and my Scor-pal, I made a French Country Port Wine Gift Bag.
To create the gift bag, I took a 12x12 piece of paper from the French Country collection and placed it on my Scor-pal and made score marks at 2 1/2", 5 1/2", 8" and 11"
Next I rotated the paper and made another score mark at 1 1/2". You can adjust the height of your gift bag depending on how tall your beverage bottle is that you are using.
I then folded along all of my score lines and made the cuts that you'll see in the photo below
I used Scor-tape on the edges and flaps that will create the gift bag. I do want to note that I inked all of my edges and placed my embellishments on the gift bag before I assembled it. I find doing this makes adding the final touches easier to do.
Once I assembled the gift bag, I took a 1/2" of paper to create the handle. Before covering it with some modge podge, I used a slightly smaller width strip of paper to add accent to the handle. The reason I used the modge podge was to give the strip of paper some added durability since it would be carrying the gift bag with a bottle of wine in it.
Next I added some fussy cut images from the French Country collections, a mix of flowers and some crinkle ribbon.
I wrapped some jute around the top of the bottle and used one of the G45 Metal Tags. Here you can easily write the name of the receipient or you could use a label.
I added more modge podge to the label I fussy cut from the collection and tucked some flowers and crinkle ribbon around it. I thought this would be a fun way to dress up the gift bag.
In the next few photos you can see how I applied some Crackle Accents to the fussy cut roosters to create an aged looked and to add decor to the sides. This way if it's displayed on a kitchen counter it looks complete on all sides.
I really love how this wine gift bag turned out and using the gorgeous papers from G45 and the Scor-pal products really made this project look elegant. This is such a quick and easy project to create and you can adjust the height and width to accommodate whatever type of beverage you are giving.
Thanks for stopping by the Scor-pal blog and for checking out another ScrappinAbby project. I hope I was able to show you a creative way to use the amazing Scor-pal and G45 products.
