Fancy Favor Bag 2

The day I made my first fancy favor box I had cut this one out at the same time. I was finally able to sit down and work with it.

I wanted to make another Christmas bag, but different. This bag was made with the snowflake #2 die, except I used the part you usually throw away for a template, instead of using the actual snowflake. What I found great to use to hold the template in place is the 2 way glue pen. Apply the glue sparingly on the template, let it dry, and then place it where you want it to be on your project. I used white craft ink on a sponge dauber to ink up the inside of the template. Remove the template and add white embossing powder and heat with the heat gun. Many of you have probably already tried this, but if not I hope this will give you another new way to create.

Here is the recipe for this project. All material is Stampin' Up!
Stamp Sets: Snow Swirled and Christmas Punch (Hostess set)
Ink: white craft
Stampin' write markers: handsome hunter and bravo burgundy
Cardstock: handsome hunter, bravo burgundy, and whisper white
Tools: Big shot, fancy favor die, snowflake #2 die, 1/2", 1 1/4", 1 3/8", and 1 3/4" circle punches, scallop oval punch, and wide oval punch
Accessories: white embossing powder

Now go-n-stamp!!

Great job, Chris! I will HAVE to get that die! Thanks for the idea of using the die cut remnant as a stencil. Good thinking!

This is awesome Chris- and great directions too. I never would have guessed that's how you did the snowflake!
