You all know how I love to re-use things. Re-cycle, re-use, re-charge my creativity. So when I had a chance to play with StencilGirl and Xyron together, re-use was the order of the day. I started with some kraft bags from the savings stash.
I selected three stencils that I wanted to use in this project. Maria MaGuire’s Stitch A Doily , Daniella Wolff’s S-curve stencil and her Word Play stencil. I gelli printed several big 20×28 sheets with acrylic paints and sprays and went in with markers to high light certain areas.
Using the new Xyron high tack double sided tape and Xyron glue dots– which you can see below, I set up getting everything ready. These new dispensers make it really easy to disburse the tape and glue dots. I had fun just getting it all ready.
I then adhered my papers to the kraft bags. Some elements of the original bag were worth keeping, but I wanted to hide the logos and make these sweet gift bags.
A bit of ribbon, and a cute paperclip and we are ready for some gift giving. Have a birthday coming up?
The StencilGirl Team is blog hopping all week, be sure to visit Janet Joehlin today to see what she created with her glue dots, tape and stencils too.
