Hello and Welcome to the Tombow USA and Art Impressions Blog Hop!
You probably got here from Daniella Hayes’ blog but if you stumbled across my blog go the Art Impressions’ Blog to start!
I made a Beach Tote Gift Bag for our hop today! I used the Ai Loungers set (4473) and Beach TryFolds set (4577) to make my project.
Here’s a close up of the Loungers and beach signs…
And here are the Tombow products I used to create my beachy gift tote… I LOVE Tombow so this was a fun project for sure! I used Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue, NEW Foam Tape, and Mono Adhesive Permanent.
To make the base of the tote, cut and score as shown here:
Fold the sides in and glue or tape where they overlap. Then decorate as desired. Add ribbon or cardstock strips for handles. Tip: I recycled/reused cording from a shopping bag. You can also save the cord from gift bags that have torn, etc. and need to be tossed.
After I colored my images, I used Tombow Foam Tape to pop them up.
The Lounging ladies were fully popped, the beach signs were popped up at the top and glued down at the bottom.
Below the signs I used Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to add “sand” (Summer Mudd Puddles).
To make the bag a bit sparkly, I added Clear Wink of Stella to the sun, umbrella, beach ball, and their drinks. 😉
Now be sure to check out the other AI and Tombow projects in the blog hop- they are fabulous!! Plus here’s some FUN prizes…
