I simply LOVE using up my Scrap Paper!  I also dislike having to purchase a gift bag when they look cheap or are boring.... ESPECIALLY when I have a few pages of spare Designer Series Paper scrap pages!
Knowing that this is a gift within a gift... and will custom fit our gift... I FEEL like a super hero when I gift wrap this WHILE using up my scrap paper!
~  Using TWO matching Designer Series Paper sheets 12"x12" measure the item you are wrapping... here it is 6"x4" coffee mug and matcha tea container.
~  Here I scored these, while stacked on one another, on the Simply Scored board. I scored at 3" and 9" along the sides, 1" at the top and turn 180*, scoring 8" for the bottom.
~  Using my Paper Snips, I cut UP, from the bottom, to create the 'legs'.
~  Using my Bone Folder, I make a firm impression along all of the score lines.
~  Adhere the 'legs' in to the base of the bottom and tuck it into the second sheet's version of the same (sorry - you will need to see the video to see what I'm trying to say lol...).
~  Adhere the sides and apply a 7"x5" side panel to each side to cover any adhesive errors but also to secure the bag with additional support.
~  Using a handheld circle punch to punch the sides and create a handle with the Night of Navy and Gold Sparkle ribbon.
Spice it UP:
~  Using the coordinating Beary Christmas Bundle you can create the CUTEST Bear Tag even!
(I just love coordinating products that make ME look talented without much effort!)

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
