I have been dragging my feet when it comes to sharing this project that I made as a Leadership sample because I knew I really needed to at least have the dimensions for you. At first glance you might think this is just a simple case of punching a hole out of the front of the bag, but once you get into it you will realize that in order for the punched hole to end up exactly where you want it, the paper needs to be folded in a specific manner.
I started with a piece of Everyday Enchantment DSP that was 4"x11". (I have several international readers who use the metric system, so I tried to convert the measurements for you...aren't you proud of me?) Then I scored it at 4.5", 9", 9.75", and 10.5". I snipped a little of the sides off the bottom flap. (You can click on the pictures if you need a closer look.) Notice from the picture below that some of the folds are mountain folds while others are valley folds.
Next I measured and marked the middle of the front panel and made a light pencil mark to use as a guide to help me center the punch. I inserted the top flap as far as it would reach and punched a hole with the Curly Label Punch.If you have the newer style of punch, it will probably reach further into the paper than my older punch did.
I should probably mention that you can get a similar effect if you have the Movers and Shapers Curly Label die, but I don't have that one, so this was my way of working around that issue. I think that the rest of this project is fairly obvious. I stamped and punched the frame from the Elementary Elegance stamp set in Soft Suede ink and then punched out the center with the Curly Label punch. Then I trimmed out the frame and aligned it with the other hole.
I mailed this project off back in December, so I don't really have the dimensions of the topper portion. Just make sure that you make the topper long enough to give the appearance that the frame is centered from top to bottom. You can fill your clear cellophane bag with treats and then staple the bag into the cover. Then cover the staples with the topper. I used the 4"x6" clear cellophane bags for this project (#102757).
