For Always Bag with NEW Textiles!

Pin It
I love how our new Textiles coordinate with our paper packets! I've seen several scrapbook ideas using the fabric, but I wanted to stretch my creativity and come up with something different. Can you believe both the bow and the black and white flower were created with the For Always Textiles!? Here is how I used it on this cutie-patooty bag:

  1. Cut out the paper bag using the For Always paper packet and the Artiste Cricut Cartridge. I actually cut out two of them with two of the same papers and cut off the flap of one to add contrast
  2. Cut out the spiral flowers, a butterfly, and a scallop border using the same cartridge with Lagoon, Ruby, and Honey cardstock (a sheet of all of these colors come in the For Always paper packet!)
  3. Add a piece of the Black Shimmer Trim, chevron paper from the For Always paper packet, and the scallop border to the front of the bag
  4. Snip the side of a piece of black Textiles about 1" down on the fabric and tear the rest to create a long strip. Tie in a bow at the top of the bag.
  5. Here is how I made the spiral fabric flower:
    • Cut/tear two strips of the white filigree fabric about 1" in thickness
    • Fold the fabric in half so it is now 1/2" thick.  You can iron this to stay, but I just kept folding it as I rolled it
    • Tack the two strips together to make one long strip using a hot glue gun (careful you don't burn your fingers!)
    • Starting from one end, roll the fabric about 4-5 times. Use the hot glue gun to tack it so it doesn't unroll
    • Now just start rolling and twisting at the same time until you've rolled it all together
    • Tack the loose end to the back
    • You can glue this to a punched cardstock circle or just add it to your papercraft
    • I added a black brad to the center of the flowers using Liquid Glass 
    • I also added a Foundry Pin Clip to hold the butterfly

CTMH "For Always" Thanks Card

Pin It
Here is a fun card using Lagoon and Pear colors with the For Always Paper Packet. I cut out the butterflies using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, stamped them with a background stamp for a little texture, then used a sponge dauber and the matching ink around the edges. The stamp set is called For Every Occasion. Can anyone guess where the ribbon came from?

I originally saw a similar card on Pinterest here. So cute! Pin It
