Good morning everyone,welcome to my blog ,today i am sharing another gift bag with you all from Tonic Studios kit 9 ,now i have to say watching the tonic craft battle yesterday and our Owain creating a tag with the gilding flakes well it got me thinking so out came the gilding flakes in gold and copper and away i went and came up with this.
Tonic Studios Craft kit 9.
Black card stock
Jet Black Craft perfect card stock
Nuvo double sided sticky sheets - A4
Nuvo -Gold gilding flakes
Nuvo- Bronze gilding flakes
Black shoe lace ribbon
Die cutting machine
Nuvo -Deluxe Adhesive
Nuvo- red liner tape
I have so say so easy to put together and not very messy either as all my gilding flakes are in an A5 box so I work over my boxes so very little mess so anyone new to gilding flakes I would suggest putting them in a bigger clear box with a secure lid as the flakes expand you think oh these tubs are light but wait until you get them out of that pot you have loads and you need very little on a project.
So the base of the bag is cut from 300gsm black card stock just what i had to hand, 240gsm will absoloutely fine for this bag as you will be building up your layers.
Now you want to use a double sided sticky sheet place the double sided sticky sheet over a piece of black card stock and then die cut the plain backing panels so you need 2x large panels for the front and back and 2x side backing panels.peel off the sticky backing and carefully place a few bits of the gold gilding flakes randomly on your backing die cut and rub in leaving gaps you don't want to cover it all brush off the bits until smooth then cover the rest with the copper flakes and repeat now you should have a two toned colour do this to all the backing pieces now you need to cut them all again but adding the detail die this time and die cut with jet black Craft perfect card stock once all these are die cut place glue onto the reverse and adhere to the backing panels, the decoration to the bag with the tags and sentiments were made the same way you will get all the cutting for the gilding flakes from an A4 sticky sheet backed onto card.
