Hello! Nichol here today with these three baby gift tote bags featuring the new Tote Bag 3D dies and Monkey Favor Bag Add On dies! These Favor Bags are the perfect size for adding small gifts and gift cards too and are super adorable dressed up with the Monkey Favor Bag Add Ons. I made these into new baby gift bags but by switching up the sentiment you can easily switch that out for birthdays or other occasions.
The Tote Bags were die cut from Lawn Fawn Gotta Have Gingham plaid patterned paper. I used the 12x12 papers from the collection as the tote bag requires a bigger piece of paper than 6x6. Each bag consists of two die cut panels. I like to keep the bag flat until I've added everything to the bag as it's easier to adhere elements before it's assembled. The tag dies included in the Tote Bag 3D collection were die cut from coordinating cardstock colors in Lawn Fawn Sticky Note and Moonstone and Simon Says Stamp Lavender to match the bags.
The Monkey Favor Bag Add On was die cut from Lawn Fawn Vanilla Malt and Paper Bag cardstock with a bit of Chocolate Bar for the noses and Black Licorice for the eyes. Gathered Twigs Distress Ink was used to add depth and dimension to the brown parts of the monkey, Antique Linen to the face and some Spun Sugar Distress Ink for the monkey's cheeks. A sponge dauber makes adding the pink for the cheeks more precise. Bows from the Snow Deer Favor Bag Add On were die cut from coordinating cardstock color to match the bags. The girls get hair bows and the boy gets a bow tie!
The monkeys were adhered to the front panel of each Tote Bag and embellished with Glossy Accents on the eyes and noses and white pen detail throughout. Each Tote Bag was assembled once the Glossy Accents was dry.
The tags were stamped with sentiments from Just Hatched using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Honey Bee Stamps Be Mine Candy Hearts accents finish each tag and the center of the hair bows and bow tie.
Ribbon was tied to the top of each bag and each tag was attached with thin string to finish the design.
