This is a photo of some of the packing paper that comes in my Stampin' Up! boxes. I have seen others use this paper for projects so I decided to give it a whirl.
Isn't that too cool?! I was really pleased with how it turned out...and, best of all, I have a ton of this stuff...well, not a ton, but--you know.
I started with a 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece and stitched about 1/2 inch from the edges. It turned out to be a little "taller" than I wanted so I trimmed about an inch off the top.
- I had the best results with a long straight stitch. Too small of a stitch looked like a perforation.
- The packing paper is a bit "wrinkled" but since I was going to cinch it at the top, I didn't worry about that.
- The stamping on the bag really made a difference and provided a nice backdrop for the bag.
- I used my Color Spritzer Tool to add an Old Olive splatter effect to the tag.
