ItsyBitsy is bursting with exciting new products and I’ve been itching to blog about it. Firstly a few weeks ago, they launched these Kraft Bags which are really economically priced, well made and come in a variety of sizes. Then a week ago, they introduced paper doilies intricately designed and available in 5 awesome sizes. Finally they’ve rolled out these amazing foam punches – Now punch craft will take on a whole new persona with crafters able to punch foam, paper and card stock with equal EASE! Here’s a little project I made incorporating these amazing elements!
I started with a Kraft paper bag and proceeded to add a doily to the top and bottom. Then I went all out with the embellishments – some beautiful boutique elements flowers, punched butterflies using the new foam punch and scores of little crystals. For the center band, I used the ItsyBitsy Lace Die, threaded some satin ribbon through it and filled the center with a glitter foam butterfly using ItsyBitsy’s butterfly Die. The scallop and straight ovals are all cut using ItsyBitsy’s Thin Cuts dies. Here’s a close up of the embellishment.
The Kraft Bags start from just Rs. 15. The bag I used above is 12″ by 7.5″ and goes for this rate. The largest bag is 18″ by 14″ and costs Rs. 39.
The Paper Doilies come in sets of 6 starting from Rs. 29 a set. For this project I used one 5.5″ doily and one 8.5″ doily, each cut in half for both sides of the bag.
For this project, I used the Butterfly Foam Punch which retails for Rs. 299. It works well with both foam and card stock. I will shortly release a demo video to show how well it works.
And here is a list of all the items I used for this project:
