Pals Blog Hop: A Quick Birthday Gift Bag!

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, the theme is All Creatures Great and Small. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Create a quick birthday gift with the Zoo Crew Collection and the Tricks & Treats Dies. A Gift Bag by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

The marvelous treat bag die from Stampin’ Up! Tricks & Treats Dies (2023 holiday catalog) helps you dress up small birthday gifts (or even a gift card) in a snap.  The die does all the “hard work” and you simply set the folds and adhere two die-cuts together.  WOW!

WHAT I LOVE! The Stampin’ Up! Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper brings a smile with its “wild” and whimsical critters.  This elephant was snipped directly from the Designer Series Paper with Paper Snips. There are several images in the Designer Series Paper that can be snipped with the coordinating Zany Zoo Dies, too.  The background to the elephant (cropped with the 2 7/8 Deckled Circle Die) and darling black zig zag pattern for the treat bag were also created with the Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper.
