1/30 Friend Tote

This is the tote I've been featuring at all of my January workshops and club events. It is so simple to make, yet the paper and easy design give it so much pop! I used the Big Shot Machine with the Top Note Die and the Box #2 Die.

This side view shows the Box #2 Die. I cut my Very Vanilla card stock into 3 1/2" x 11" strips and ran it through the Big Shot by lining it up on the die so that the top portion of the box with the flaps is cut off - you don't need the closure when you make a tote. The handle is a strip of Very Vanilla paper cut at 1 1/4" x 11". You can fasten it to the box with a brad as I did - so quick and easy.
The Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is just so GORGEOUS!! I can't get enough of it and judging by the orders my customers are placing . . . they can't either! The glitter on this paper makes it absolutely irresistible - so fun and flirty! You can make three totes from a full sheet of 12x12 designer paper when you cut your rectangles at 5 1/4" by 4". That is the size that fits just right over the Top Note Die.
The heart is stamped with Real Red ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla paper and punched out with the Full Heart punch. It's adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to a layer of red and pink. The ribbon is Very Vanilla Taffeta and adhered with a Mini Glue Dot - super easy and the perfect touch.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by my blog. Stamping to Share Shopping is available 24/7 at my Stampin' Up Business Website!
