Presenting the Present... Roof Garden Cello Bags and Toppers

The Roof Garden Accents and Elements cards were so much fun to make... and having a box to present (gift) them in makes them a fun gift too. They just needed a little something "more" to make the gift presentation perfect. So, off to my local paper and party store "Paper N' Stuff"... where I found the perfect sized bags for the card sets.

Edited post.... Finally had time to search and find Kristen Moore's blog: Sunshine, Smiles & Stamps= Lovin’ Life... take a peek (She was the creator of the basic roof garden class which was posted on the Demonstrator Website. I added a box for the small gift cards, bags, and toppers to make them perfectly presentable gifts.)


This smaller gusseted cello bag measured 3-1/2" x 7-1/2" and was the perfect size to hold the set of gift enclosure cards and box. I added a topper of Not Quite Navy card stock, and a Whisper White Top Note Die. Of course, the leftover self adhesive die cuts made a perfect embellishment to this little bag too!

The standard cards and box required a larger cello bag (of course)... my local paper store had just the right one! This larger gusseted cello bag measured 5" x 11". The cards and box fit quite neatly into the first gusset of the bag, allowing the bag to lie flat in the package. The same top note die is used (in Not Quite Navy) but folded long sides together to perfectly accent the top of the bag. Additional (slightly larger) card stock was added in layers of Whisper White and Kiwi Kiss... a perfect compliment to the Roof Garden Accents and Elements, don't you think?

Not sure that the photograph shows it too well.. but the flower atop the bag was made with the Stampin' Up! Scallop Circle Punch, and paper snips were used to cut into the bloom to form 'petals'. All other elements are self adhesive die cuts from the Roof Garden Accents and Elements Tin

I love the added touch of the top notes, very nice! Thanks for the weblink for Kristen Moore's blog, I'll have to check it out. I'm a demo too and purchased the scrappin kit bundle that had the dsp and Roof Garden accents & elements so I can create these. How funny after I purchased I saw your original post. Thanks for sharing, I like you blog!
