Instructions for Castle gift bag:
*all cardstock and punches used are Stampin' Up!

1) Cut the following pieces from Crumb Cake card stock (I used textured)
Main back section pieces - 4-1/2" x 5", 4-3/4" x 1/2"
Front entrance section pieces - 3" x 2-1/2", 3" x 1/2"
Tower section pieces - (2) 1-1/2" x 4", (2) 1-3/4" x 1/2"

2) Punch out 18 Jewelry Tags from Crumb Cake card stock and cut off the small tops.  Punch 3 Large Ovals in black and cut in half.  Punch 1 Large Tag in black.  Punch bottom center of the front entrance section with the Extra Large Tag punch.  

3) Sponge edges of all crumb cake pieces with crumb cake ink. Glue jewelry tag pieces onto back of 1/2" wide castle pieces (7 on longest one, 5 on medium sized one and 3 on each small one).  Emboss pieces with Bricked embossing folder (Tim Holtz) (optional if you have the folder).  

4) Attach 1/2" wide pieces onto top of section pieces with dimensionals.  Glue 1/2 black oval pieces on for windows. Attach front center section onto center of main back section with dimensionals.  Glue large black tag into the doorway of front center section.  

5) For roof, cut 4-1/2" x 3" in Pretty in Pink.  On the back side of cardstock, draw a line from lower left and right corners to top center and cut off to create triangle.  Cut a narrow triangle section in Bashful Blue for center.  Cut a narrow strip of black for the pole at top.  Punch smallest heart from Heart to Heart in real red. Stamp greeting from Occasional Quotes on white with regal rose ink.  Hand cut banner and glue onto pole.

6) Punch 10 branches from 2-Step Bird in Wild Wasabi.  Punch flowers from Itty Bitty Punch pack in Pretty in Pink, Marina Mist and So Saffron.  Attach branches and flowers to towers and center section.  Add pearl jewels onto center of each flower.  

7) Die cut clouds using My Favorite Things Dynamics die.  Attach Soft Sky cardstock to front of 8 x 10 gift bag.  Add strip of wild wasabi cardstock along bottom of bag for grass.  Attach main castle section with strong adhesive.  Attach towers with dimensionals.  Add glitter to edges of clouds and flowers.  Tie pretty in pink grosgrain ribbon on bag handle.

Kim,
If I won the class would I be able to follow it? I have been taught to scrap by a Creative Memories Consultant and I am just getting out of that kind of scrappin in the last year, it is all a little overwhelming! Eveyone on this Blog Hop seems so much more talented than I am!
