Embossed Glassine Bags by Guiseppa Gubler

Hi all and Happy Merry after Christmas.  Hope you all are recovering from food comatose...I know I am trying.  Guiseppa here to share with you a very cute and simple way to dress up those glassine bags and right in time to get ready for the next holiday...Valentine's Day!

For this tutorial I used Samantha Walker's Grand Impressabilities from Spellbinders.  The Impressabilities I used were the: 

This was so easy and a fun way to add an extra special touch to your bags.  First off grab your gray stack plate and the Impressabilie you are using.  Make sure the ridged cutting edge is up on the Impressabilitie you are using.  

Next, grab your glassine bag and put it face down or on the side you want to be the front.  Sorry the images look so funny.  These die cuts are shiny and  have a glare to them. 

Then, take the Tan Embossing Mat and put it on top of the Impressabilitie. 

Finally, stack the Pink Embossing Plate on top of all of it.  Now, you are ready to emboss!

Send it on through your Grand Calibur making sure you keep it flat and straight.  Then remove all of the layers to see your bag.

This is how mine turned out.

So cute huh?  I am quite pleased!  Now for the embellishing!  I used Samantha Walker's Paris Girl Collection from Carta Bella because I thought it was perfect to turn these bags into Valentine's Day bags.

See the fun little tag on this last one?  It is also one of Samantha Walker's.  This one is a Silhouette file.  I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and have fun with your Valentine's Day projects and don't forget to add a little Samantha Walker...cause it's fun :)
