Many Thanks Bags
Happy Friday!!! I'm dropping in to share a few cute bags I made using the Many Thanks Stamps sets. Many Thanks was the first Brutus|Monroe Set I used and I loved it because you can say "Thank You" for just about anything with this set. I wanted to show you that you don't have to use this set just for cards.
What you will need:
- Brutus|Monroe Stamps Set-Many Thanks
- Brutus|Monroe-Premium Chalk Inks
- Cardstock cut to 41/2in. X 6 1/2in
- Adhesive Tape
First you will need to score your 4 1/2in. X 6 1/2in. piece of cardstock 5 times. On the 6 1/2 in. side score at 2in. , 3in, 5in, and 6in. Turn to the 4 1/2 in side and score at 1in. Once you have it scored you are going to cut out the little rectangle on the corner(see photo). Cut along the score line to the 1in. line, make sure you don't go any further than the 1in. line.
Fold along all the score lines. Fold over each side and find the side you would like to be the front of your bag. Grab your favorite icon from the set, your favorite Brutus|Monroe Premium Chalk Ink. I like to use a color that is similar to the paper. Fold over the sides, so that just the front is showing and stamp the image randomly. You can also use washi or masking tape to mask off the front, this is just easier and faster.
To add the Thank You without the circle use masking tape to cover what you don't want to ink. On this sized bag the Thank You fits perfectly. Now to put the bag together, run your favorite adhesive tape along the tab above the cut out rectangle. Fold over to the other side and pres firmly making sure the edges all line up.
All you have left to is fold in the bottom tabs and adhere them closed. There are lots of ways to close these bags at the top. You can use ribbon, tulle, clips, staples, anything really or you can leave them open. You can't fit a lot in these bags, but its a great way to say Thank You with a little treat.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend. -Chris
