Panda Stationary Tote - Part 1

This is a special tote and one of the last projects we all made a s a group last week. I was responsible to come up with the tote and the gals were responsible to come up with the embellishments they wanted to use. Nice collaboration - eh? Surprises all around to see the final product which we all loved! We didn't put any message on the front of the Stationary Tote or on the cards on purpose. This can be done later. Finished tote size: 5-1/2" x 5-3/4" x 1-1/4" (excluding handle).

From the back, open the tote:

Here are the contents fully revealed:

(3) Panda Cards and Envelopes
(1) Posit it Note
(3) Book Marks or tags
(1) Pen

The Post-it Note: inside notes are 3x3 Post-it's

These are the (3) tags made from the Two Tags SU Exclusive Due: use as book marks or gift tags.

4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Cards and envelopes included:

(2) Full size Standing Panda cards:

(1) Full size card with a sitting Panda.

This is what the side view of the tote looks like.

And here is a close-up of the front pouch seams where the stamp design meets.

The handle: secured with Black brads:

  • Stamps: Bamboo Background (non SU), Asian Word (non SU)
  • CS: Real Red, Naturals Ivory, Black, Whisper White
