G45 Gilded Lily: Banner, Invitations and Bags

This months Graphic 45 Challenge is a party theme and I wanted to use the new collection Gilded Lily.  I did a lot of detail cutting out of this paper collection and came up with some great ideas.  I made a Banner, 3 Invitations and 3 gift Bags.  I will describe below how I made each and the sizes of everything.  I must say that I love this paper, (even though I love all Graphic 45 paper), but this Victorian theme is pretty awesome.

 Now I will go into detail how I made each starting with the banner.

G45 GILDED LILY: BANNER

I started with the new We Are Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board


 The larger banner pieces are 4 1/2" wide x 6" tall and the smaller pieces are 2 1/2" wide and 3 1/2" tall.


The second layer:  The larger banner pieces are 4 x 5 1/2" and the smaller pieces are 2 1/4 x 3 1/4".


Next, I layered the second layer on the first layer and used Thin 3D Foam Squares.


 Next, I cut pieces out of the collection.




 
 Then attach them using Thin 3D Foam Squares.




 
 I used cream colored ribbon to lace it up.  The Banner Punch Board has a hole punch built in.


 G45 GILDED LILY: INVITATIONS

Starting with a 9 1/4 x 5 7/8" piece of cardstock and scoring at 4 5/8".

I used the Invitation stamp and a border stamp from the collection.
 I stamped the border at the top and bottom, and the invitation close to the top.
 

 For the front of the Invitation I used a Spellbinders die: A2 Devine Eleoquence.


The first layer is 4 3/8 x 5 5/8" as the base.  The next two layers are from the die cut.  The second layer size is 4 x 5" and the third layer is 3 x 4 3/4"

Detail cut out of the paper collection.


 Layer the pieces.

I used Thin 3D Foam Squares on the third layer and the detailed cut pieces.

I used the We Are Memory Keepers Bag Punch Board.  However, since the board only goes to 3 5/8" wide I had to do some manipulation to get a bigger bag.

 This particular bag is 5 1/2" wide, 4 3/4" tall and 2" depth.  I did not put holes in the bags for a ribbon closure, I used Velcro instead.

 The first layer I used another Spellbinders die: Lattice Rectangles, the largest one, which is 4 x 5".  Then added a few detail cutting pieces to it.
 Again, layering the pieces using Thin 3D Foam Squares.
 

The tall bag is 3 5/8" wide and 10 3/4" tall.  The medium blue bag is 5 1/2" wide and 7" tall.

I hope you liked my G45 Gilded Lily party theme collection of Banner, Invitations and Bags.
