Which bag do you prefer?I'm participating in a multi-demonstrator Holiday Stamp-A-Stack in October and the gift that we're giving each of the participants is a decorated gift bag. The demonstrators are each making several of their own design, and the participants in the Stamp-A-Stack will be able to pick the one that they want for their very own. I've designed the two bags that you see pictured here. I have a dilemma, tho. I like both of the bags about equally, and they each have their own special "perks". The taller bag will hold the class cards easily, but it is also a bit taller and seems a bit more like a typical gift bag. The smaller bag is sized perfectly to hold cards, and it is nice and sturdy since it is actually a box that I've "up-cycled" to make this cute bag. Both of them have ribbon carrying handles that work really nicely. I will be using retired papers and embellishments to make the bags, and they will likely be in a variety of patterns and colors because I'll be digging into my stash. So, my question to you is… if you were attending the Stamp-A-Stack, which one would you prefer? Please leave me a comment with your vote.

Also, it isn't too late to sign up for the Stamp-A-Stack in case you're interested. Although, I suggest that you sign up really quickly because spaces are filling up fast. If you do want to sign up, please contact me ASAP. Here are the details for the Stamp-A-Stack:

  • Description: You'll create 12 different Holiday cards and get to know some other crafty people. The class includes pre-cut materials and envelopes for each card; you just bring your own adhesive to stamp and assemble these unique cards. We'll provide you with a light lunch, a special stamped gift bag that you can choose and an incentive (including a prize drawing) for ordering. We'll also have a chance to buy 50/50 tickets, which are always loads of fun! This class is geared to crafters aged 12 and up. If you have little ones at home, find a sitter and enjoy some adult crafty time for yourself. How could you possibly resist this class?!?
