Graphic 45 Gift Bag and Card Tutorials: Day Two!


It's Day 2 of our Fabulous #G45GiftHowTos where we provide tutorials for Gift Bag and Cards. Our Design Team has knocked these tutorials out of the water! You will love every single day and today is no exception. Rhea Freitag and Solange Marques have created absolutely beautiful projects for you today! Thanks for joining us today!


First, we have a gorgeous Come Away with Me gift bag and card from Rhea. We love the sentiment and the gorgeous colors with this set!

"This project was created with a travel theme in mind. I pictured the recipient either moving away or heading out on a long voyage. The Come Away With Me papers were a perfect choice for this idea. Since I took the time to make a handmade card, I decided to showcase it a bit by making it part of the decoration on the paper bag. A little bit of cellophane left over made for the perfect pocket for my little note. I also created a snapguide on assembling this simple project. Enjoy!" ~Rhea

"For special occasions, a gift package accompanied by a card made with love for yourself can appreciate any gift.

Time to Celebrate is the new Graphic 45 collection and it is perfect to several occasions such as birthdays, weddings, graduates and much more. I used this collection to make a gift bag and card for a birthday. I did a Snapguide tutorial to show how to make them."~Solange
