PostSubject: BIRTHDAY GIFT BAG AND TAG SET - DUE AUGUST 31st    Sun Jul 02, 2017 12:11 am

Many of you enjoyed making these in the past and they are so very handy to have when you need one quickly !!

This is a partnered swap for a matching gift bag and tag set. We used to always include a greeting card as well, but I will make that an OPTIONAL bonus if you wish to make one. I wanted to keep this swap fairly simple and easy since many of us are very bogged down with health problems and other issues during the summer.

You will create 2 Regular sized Gift bags ( about 9 1/2" to 10" High ) that have the handles on them and a flat - boxy type bottom. Then make a matching tag for each one. The tags should be a minimum of 3" x 5" and can be Ranger #8 tags , or a tag that you create which is made of sturdy cardstock or chipboard. The tag should have a reinforced hole, or one with an eyelet and should have a ribbon or twine tie that is about 16 -18" long, so that there is ample length to make a bow and tie it onto the bag.

Each bag should be decorated on the front with pretty papers, ribbons, stamped images, bling, flowers, or whatever you want to create for it. The back can be simpler and should at least be covered with a panel of pretty paper. The 2 bag sets should be different designs.

Ask your partner if she would like an adult theme, or one for a child - boy or girl. We want our partners to be able to actually USE the bag set !

Here are a few sample pictures of ones that I have made. This is not a difficult project if you think it through before starting and get your supplies together.

Helpful Hints :
1. Do not use a glossy bag . It is very hard to get paper and glue to stick to them unless you first sand them off .
2, KRAFT paper bags and White paper bags work best .
3. Cut 2 paper panels (one for the front and one for the back) in the same size to start. Makes things go quicker.
4. Try first to design and assemble your pieces on the paper panels first. Once they are done, then you can mount the paper panels onto your bag using a good quality wet adhesive. I like Scotch 3M Quick Drying Glue. It holds very well and does not fall off a few weeks after you make your bag. Most every Tape Runner I ever used does not work well for heavy items like this. I have received a lot of gift bags from other swappers that I had to re-glue before using them. They had been assembled with ATG runners or some type of "dry " adhesive.

Please post here on the thread at least once per week once you get your partner and let us all know your progress. Feel free to ask questions if you need help .

Sign ups will begin immediately, and will close on July 15th. I will then assign partners and you have about 6 weeks to create your bags and tags and get them mailed to your partner.

Thanks for joining !!

BIG WAVES to my partner, Christine - What kind of Bags & Tags would you like to have ? Any special colors or themes ? Child, Adult, Boy or Girl ? Etc... I love making these things !

For me, I would like to have a couple of sets that would be suitable for a Man's birthday ! Thanks !

Hey Melody! I have a 10 year old girl. So tween girls birthday bags would be great. They're all 10 going on 25 so nothing too kid-ish if you know what I mean! Smile send me a PM on Facebook if not ok! Are feminine or even unisex adult bags good for you? Super excited for this one!
