Sneak Peek Gift Bag Punch Board

Happy  Almost Friday Friends!

Today I am sharing a sneak peek of two cute gift bags I made from (retired) Designer Series Paper, using the new Stampin' Up! Gift Bag Punch Board, available June 2nd in the Stampin' Up! 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.

These two bags took me all of about 10 minutes to make.  So easy and you can make the bags in different sizes and from 4 to 10 inches tall. 

If you would like to get the Gift Bag Punch Board, I'll be submitting an order on June 2, 2015.  Visit my store at (by 7:00 PM Pacific time) and use Hostess Code 6N49M9WW and the punch board will ship straight to you (item 135862). 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Take care,
