Last Minute Gifts by Martha Lucia
Let me start with this craft bag. You can find them in craft stores or if you want a bag little bigger in dollar stores and supermarkets. Just take the long side of your bag and decide the part that you will fold and the wide of your decoration.
To make my project I am using Ruby/Gold Glossy Rinea Foiled paper with a Spellbinders border die cut. You can cut and use Rinea Foiled paper easily in any cutting machine or an electronic machine, it cuts like butter.
I also embossed the piece of Rinea Foiled paper with the same border from Spellbinders. It is easy too, you just need the rubber mat for your cutting machine.
To paste the decorated border to my paper or craft bag, I used tear tape double sided. Rinea Foiled Paper works just like other papers, with the difference that you add an extraordinary touch to your creativity using it.
The additional touch of my decorated bag was made using Silver/Silver Starstruck Rinea Foiled Paper. I cut two different snowflakes to make it more special and pasted it to the bag using glue dots.
My next project is a box, perfect for gift cards, jewelry pieces of any special gift.
I am using a black box that I got in a craft store but you can use any color of the box because Rinea Foiled papers combine perfectly with all.
To make this you only need to cut strips of one or more colors of Rinea foiled paper with different wide curly the strips with your scissors or bone folder.
I made mine with the scissors because at the same time I got a little distress over the paper that I love. After you have enough strips attach the center of all of them with a stapler and your amazing bow will be ready.
I hope these simple ideas help you with your last minute gifts. They are easy, beautiful and quick and if you need to create several gifts with different colors and looks these are perfect!
