Gift Bag & Bookmark

 

Hello everyone. This is Jinky from JinkysCrafts and I am excited to share a few projects I made recently using the Flying Airships by Hero Arts and adorned with some May Arts Ribbons. When I received these new 2012 Hero Arts Cling Stamps, I decided to make a bag and a bookmark. 

Here’s how I did it: 

I used each of the Hero Arts “Flying Airship” Cling Stamp sets. 

For my  Bag :  I stamped G45  paper and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. I then created a tag to adorn my bag, I stamped my chipboard with Memento Brown and colored it with markers and distressed it with “Fired Brick” Distress Ink. I used the “A Proper Gentleman” paper stack from  Graphic 45

 

For my Bookmark

I cut enough Grosgrain May Arts Ribbon and attached ribbon clasps on both ends. Also I added hardware clips as a charms. I stamped and colored a gift tag and cut the outline so it matches the width of my ribbon. I then adhered the gift tag to my Ribbon Bookmark. 

This project is so easy and fast. It is a great gift set for the men in your life. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope I inspired today.
