Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #399


Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Ice Inspiration Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

 Gift It

 We are using Mama Elephant products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)

This gift bag is the size of an envelope. First, you need to seal the envelope and then I merely scored the corners at 1/2 inch and folded into a gift bag. 
EDITED: I hunt down an old video from Hero Arts 6 years ago. I learned this technique through the talented Lisa Spangler. Her tutorial is awesome! You can check it out here.

Believe it or not....this is actually a baby gift to our friends' son and his wife who recently had their first born. I thought instead of something really cutesy, this is more celebratory as a birth gift.  
I decorated the gift bag with Party Kit. That set is awesome and provides tons of colors, too. Inside the gift bag contains our present. It's always a good idea to give some cool cash for the new parents, right?

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!
There are fabulous Give Aways and inspiration from fabulous designers on a daily basis over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog . If you haven't subscribed by email, you may want to do so you don't miss out.

You have until Wed. 8am Eastern Time to join in :-)
Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too !
I hope you check out the DT's work!  I can't wait to see what you create!!
Thanks for stopping by!

What a lovely way to give a cash or gift card gift. A step up from the usual card wrap.
