Reverse Confetti Special Release


Reverse Confetti has a mid-month special release treat for you today! Join the Confetti Crew and some super special 'Fetti Friends for today's blog hop showing off these new goodies. 


The special mini release includes In The Bag Confetti Cuts, which is a die set custom-designed to fit the new Clear Tote Bags. In the Bag comes with six tote bags, and the tote bags will also be available separately in packages of six. Along with those products is the Layered Bow die set, a unique take on bow-making dies. 

I love the Clear Tote Bags and haven't seen anything like them before. They are similar in size to small rope-handled bags, only they're made of clear plastic, and instead of handles, they have a nice flap closure.


With the recent release of S'more Love, I've been itching to make a s'mores kit. The Clear Tote Bags are a perfect fit !



I die-cut the In the Bag decorative liner piece out of vellum, then attached a rectangle black/white back piece before slipping it down into the bag. After I filled the bag with the s'mores ingredients, I closed up the bag and did the rest of the decorating on the outside of the bag.

The green background is attached to the bag front. Next, using Strawberry Twine, I tied on a tag that I cut using two of the tag dies included in In the Bag. The sentiment is stamped on the tag. The penguin, s'mores stick and fire are stamped, die-cut, colored with Copics, and adhered with foam tape.


The Layered Bow is fabulous and super versatile. The "tails" can be arranged wherever you like, and the outline layer can be added or left off (I left it off).



Each half of the bow is cut separately, which is nice because it gives you a little bit of play on how wide to make your bow.



My black and white backing piece was a two-sided print, and the other side that showed through to the back didn't work at all, so I cut a second back out of the same green used on the front and just adhered it to the back of the black/white piece. This would be a good place to add a message, instructions (does anyone really needed for s'mores, though?), or tuck in a small notecard (bag width is 4", so it would need to be a little smaller than A2).

Sweet! I can't wait to fill these bags with all sorts of goodies -- I have so many ideas!
