You're A Gem Gift Bag/Envelope with Katelyn

Hey Wild Whisper Fans, Katelyn here! I'm excited to be back on the blog today as I've been playing with one of the four new collections that was released last month. The Watercolour collection by Pam Bray Designs is perfect for creating beautiful projects. To create my You're A Gem Gift Bag/Envelope because you can either use it as a gift bag or an envelope or both, you'll need the paper pack from Pam Bray, a couple of stamp sets and sequins. You'll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and learn how to recreate my gift bag/envelope at home.
To start, you'll need the 12x12 Watercolour Paper Pack. Cut two pieces that measure 3 7/8" x 6 7/8". Cut two pieces that measure 3/8" x 6". Cut one piece that measures 3/8" x 4". Die cut a 2 3/4" Stitched Circle. Distress the edges of all of the pieces. Ink the edges of all of the pieces using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.
You'll need to choose one more patterned paper piece from the Watercolour paper pack. Die cut the 3 1/4" Stitched Circle out of the patterned paper. Distress the edges of the circle. Ink the edges of the circle using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Next, you'll need the Stamp & Photo Storage Die from Eileen Hull. Die cut the die twice out of Mat board. On one of the box pieces, cut the bottom off of it. Ink the edges of both box pieces using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam. Adhere the box together.
Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the You're A Gem sentiment out of the Wild Whimsy stamp set. Stamp onto a piece of white cardstock. Die cut the sentiment out using the 3/4" Stitched Fishtail Banner Die. Cut the banner down to 3 3/8". Distress the edges. Ink the edges of the sentiment banner using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the large floral stamp from the Floral Stamp set. Stamp onto a piece of white cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to one of the small flowers and stamp onto the same piece of white cardstock. Reapply ink to the same small flower stamp and stamp onto the same piece of white cardstock. Colour the flowers in using Tombow Markers 177, 679 and 676. Fussy cut the flowers out. Ink the edges of the flowers using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam. To finish off the flowers, add a coat of glitter to the flowers using a Clear Glitter Pen.
With your box assembled, adhere the patterned papers to the front and back as well as the sides and bottom  of the gift bag/envelope.
Adhere the 2 3/4" stitched circle to the 3 1/4" stitched circle. Foam square the 3 1/4" stitched circle of the middle of the gift bag/envelope. Foam square the large flower to the middle of the 2 3/4" stitched circle.
Foam square one of the flowers in between the leaves. Adhere the You're A Gem sentiment banner to the right of the large flower bunch. Foam square the last flower to the bottom left side of the sentiment banner.
To finish off the gift bag/envelope, adhere six sequins as desired on the front.
Here are a few closeup photos of the finished gift bag/envelope.
