Heidi Swapp: DIY Stenciled & Stamped Gift Bags


This cute little boy went with me to Michaels yesterday to check out the new Heidi Swapp Project Life goodies.  I was so fortunate to be able to play with some of them for Heidi's new release, but I couldn't resist stopping in to buy check out the different kits and products.  Everything is just so flippin' amazing.  I love Heidi's style so much, and the additions to these kits are genius (did you see the camera card???).


I picked up a few little goodies for myself, as well as some for a little giveaway.  And what's a giveaway with a pretty gift bag, you might ask???  

So.... with the help of my two rug rats, I played around with a few muslin bags and some of Heidi's stencils, stamps and mists to create the perfect gift bags!  These bags are sooooo easy to make and are just amazing!  Here's a quick little tutorial for ya!


Grab your stencils, stamps, mists, inks and get messy!!
I used the Heidi Swapp "Stencil Minis", as well as her "I like totally love you" stamp for my bags.  The stencils are 3x4 (sized for Project Life), but are so versatile for other projects.  I also grabbed a few of the new mini Color Shine bottles and my favorite pink shimmer for my mists.

Since the stencils are smaller than the bag, I taped the stencils to the bags with some washi and then lined all sides of the stencil with pieces of scrap paper to completely cover the edges of the muslin bags (leaving only the stencil visible).  A few quick sprays of mist and my bag was finished!




Who wants one of these goodie bags filled with a few new Heidi Swapp Project Life goodies???  I have a bag all packed and ready to be mailed to one lucky friend!  Hop on over to my Instagram and leave a comment to be entered to win!!

  16. I will write a comment here, instagram asked my to login and I don't normally do instagram so I did not know what to put. Anyway, I love your bag idea! I do love her stencils but have not seen the small ones yet. :) Thanks for sharing.
