Watercolor Wings Hallett Bag

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

I know that this is the fourth Watercolor Wings creation I've shared with you in a week, but I LOVE the set and there are SO many things you can do with it.

The original Hallett bag designed by my Stampin' Sister Caroline uses a piece of 12" long DSP for the bag. No DSP that size? NO problem! You can sub in two pieces that are 6" x 3½" and you can even create your OWN DSP using a favorite stamp set. Yep, I've done BOTH for today's. The only difference between this version and Caroline's original is that I've got the seams on either end, rather than at the back...

Card: Whisper White and Coastal Cabana (retired)
Ink: Soft Sky, Pool Party and Lost Lagoon
Stamp set: Watercolor Wings
Tools: Bold Butterfly Framelits and Envelope Punch Board
Adhesive: Sticky Strip (retired) and Tombow

Caroline's original measurements... my substitutions
Bag base 2½" x 5¼, scored on all sides at ½"
Bag sides 3½" x 12"... 3½" x 6" (2)
Edging ½" x 12" (3)... ½" x 6" (6) for the top, bottom and inside of the bag
Handles 3/8" x 6" (2)
