When I get my boys ready to go back to school, we always come up with a little gift to give the teacher to welcome him or her back as well. Usually we like to include some school supplies because teachers can’t seem to get enough school supplies! A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by State Line Bag Company and they asked me to try out some of their new Premium Muslin bags. I just knew that these would be perfect for my teacher gift. These bags are perfect for packaging so many kinds of things. They are made from a high quality muslin and come in lots of different sizes.
To start my project, I turned to a Lettering Delights Cut Its Set called Toad-ally School. I selected my image and then using Make the Cut, manipulated it by using the Boolean Join function so that I actually created a stencil of each color. Then I cut out each one in vinyl. Next, I took some scrap cardstock and placed it inside the bag. I applied the first vinyl stencil.
Then I painted it in…
Then removed the stencil…
Once the paint is dry, apply the next layer and repeat until all done.
Now, I couldn’t stop there. I decided to add the teacher’s name to the bag using a thin metal die and fabric and to do that I used my trusty eBosser. I am guessing that you want to see how I did that, so I made you a little video…
Here is the final project!
Now, on with some fun stuff! State Line Bag Company has given me some bags to give away! To win the bags, you must be a follower of my blog and you must leave me a comment below! That’s it! Easy Peasy!
