Hi, today is Do Over Thursday over on the My Creative Time blog!
I didn't dislike my first birthday bag but I wanted go in a different direction this time. I wanted to use a similar tag the first time, however, it covered up too much of the sentiment and at the time, I was dead set on using that particular stamp. So now on to my revised birthday bag.
I found these two pack gift bags at Michael's in the dollar section and just new I wanted to eventually make something with them. I love the pattern with the beautiful coral with a hint of gold, pink, and white! So I cut them down as I had with my other bag to be able to fit them into my Cuttlebug. Then I cut out two bag pieces using the new Chalkboard Birthday Stamp and Die set.
I cut out a Vellumn label using a die from the Love To Learn set. I then stamped on the word art birthday sentiment also from the Chalkboard Birthday Stamp and Die set. I used Versamark ink along with Recollection's Gold embossing Powder. I glued the corners down with Glossy Accents and then covered them up with tiny stars from the 4x4 Journal Die and More set.
I first used the candle cupcake outlined die from the new Light the Candles stamp set to create the gift tag base. I then used the other cupcake dies along with the cupcake stamp to create the rest of the cupcake for the tag. I colored the candle in with Copic markers. I also used the Versamark ink and Recollection's Gold embossing powder to stamp on the sprinkles and candle. I stamped on the inside of the cupcake tag using the Just Tags Stamp and Die set.
I added the handles that I cut off of the bags and glued the bag together. I tied the tag to the handle with some gold twine I had in my stash. I then added a lot of tissue paper this time. I wish I would have used more on my first bag.
Here was my first birthday bag I created for the May release.
