The new DSP Tall Tales from Stampin' Up!
makes an adorable gift bag. This year is full of fun DSP. It is great for layering on your cards, use it for making gift bags, and add it to your scrap pages for immediate WOW!!!!

I have been asked about the dimensions for this bag so here they are. Take a piece of 12 x 12 DSP and score each vertical side at 1 1/2" then score the bottom at 1 1/2" and the top at 1". Fold the top over to make a cuff. Then fold the sides in on each piece of DSP. Adhere the sides together using sticky strip to make a crips edged bag. Turn the bag upside down and fold the bottom in like you were wrapping a present and adhere the bottom closed as well with sticky strip. Your finished bag is 9 inches wide by 9 1/2" tall. Have fun!

OMGosh, Donna,
This is SO STINKIN' CUTE! Now I'm kicking myself for not preordering this DSP, but I plan to place another demo order around the 15th, so it'll definitely be on there. I didn't love this set when I first saw it, but ordered it anyway with my free hostess merch. SO glad I did! TSMFS!!!

Love the bag and now I love the set and paper. Of course, I did not order these, but certainly will with our club order on 9th. This is my first visit to your blog - you are so talented. Loved everything I saw and will be checking back often.

I saw the picture of your gift bag made with Tall Tales and am wondering if you would share it’s dimensions with me. Someone on Late Night Stampers found your site and passed it around for us to check out. Wow, I took a quick look the other day and saved it as a favorites – I just came back today because I want to make that bag for my stamp club group on Tuesday night. I’ve taken the time to read about you and it would seem you have had an interesting life. Your work is absolutely beautiful and when I have more time I’m going to watch some of your tutorials. I really appreciate someone sharing the way you do and will keep you on my places to frequent. Anyway, I hope that you can send me the how to or where you found the how to so I can feature it this week. I’m going to use some retiring papers so maybe they’ll order some.

Uber cute bag Donna! TFS. Do I understand correctly...you use 2 pieces of DSP? I can't picture how you do it with one..I think it is two from the finished dimensions you posted?
Thanks, love your blog!
