Got Your Bag Packed? - Edna Taylor

Good morning and welcome to the blog today.

It's time for a Tonic POTW on Create & Craft at 12.00 noon today also at 3, 5 and 9 pm.

It's time for the long awaited Kingscross Suitcase and Hillingdon Bag gift boxes and some of the most luxurious papers I have ever seen!
It is Tonic's 'Craft Perfect' Handcrafted papers each pack with 10 sheets of A4 paper, two sheets of each design.

 This little suitcase is part of a comprehensive 12 piece die set that includes all the little extras you could want to make your special, personalised gift bag.
The Kingscross dimensions are approx. 80 x 100 x 30 mm

I've used paper from the Ocean Waves selection. At 150gsm and very soft to the touch it is perfect for die cutting and very tactile with lots of varying designs all with a fabulous embossed finish.

Onto the Hillingdon Bag. 
This is a really sophisticated shape and lends itself to the designer look very comfortably.

The Hillingdon finished size is approx. 90 x 120 x 30 mm. 
For this bag I have used paper from the Buried Treasure selection. 
You can see how deeply embossed the design is but it presents no difficulties in die cutting and is beautiful to work with too.


The Hillingdon die set contains 16 dies and again provides all the variations you could want to make your own designer look bag. Fabulous for girly occasions, wedding favours, hen parties etc etc. 

Thank you so much for joining me today and don't forget to watch the shows and be inspired.
Check out the Tonic FB page, Tonic Gold and Blog Tonic for more ideas on using your dies past and present! :) 

Have a great day!
