Shimmery Tote Gift Bag Tutorial

I am in love with Stampin’ Up’s new Shimmery Vellum, and it’s just stunning in the new 2021-2023 In Color Collection. I used it  to create these gorgeous Shimmery Tote Gift Bag Totes, along with the All Dressed Up Dies. I also used the new In color Card Stock and Designer Series Paper for coordinating accents.

These treat bags will make great gifts and party favors. They are super easy to make. You can see them featured on yesterday’s Stampin’ Scoop Show video #121. Click here.

I have lots of photos and printable instructions below. Be sure to check out my special offer In Color Kits.




  •  Shimmer Vellum – 12″ x 6″ sheet of to cut purse die
  • Scraps of coordinating card stock for straps
  • Scraps of coordinating designer series paper for pocket and latch
  • Scraps of Copper Foil for accents and button
  • Gift/Treats/Tissue paper to fill the bag

    • (2) purse dies from Shimmer Vellum
    • (4) strap dies from card stock
    • Latch & Pocket from designer series paper
    • (4) buckles and a button from Copper Foil
  • Attach the 2 sections of the purse die together with Seal + Adhesive and assemble the bag. 
  • Cut 2 of the straps in half and attach to the front and back of the bag with Seal Adhesive.
  • Place a buckle on each end of the remaining 2 straps and attach to the bag with Seal + Adhesive.

    These little bags were such a good way to show the in colors. I was looking for the actual size it would hold. They are very cute. Thanks
