I printed out a couple of sheets on my Epson 3880 for the first time this week and I'm really loving it for Easter projects. I used the Epson Archival Matt paper, which is perfect. I also printed out sections of digital papers on my cheapo color laser printer and backed them with a heavier craft paper. That looked quite nice as well, so you don't have to have an expensive printer.
I used my Sizzix Big Shot with a die (#657994) to cut out the shape for this gift topper. I don't particularly like cutting things out by hand, so I love having die cuts and punches. It is an investment to get the machine and dies, but even straight cuts made by hand would still be nice with a ribbon and other embellishments added. The plastic bag was just a 4x6 sleeve for photo storage! I used a hole punch to punch through the plastic and topper to thread the ribbon through.
Here's the same gift bag with a tag added. (Coming soon! hopefully by next week.) I also used a Sizzix die (framelit 657911) for the tag. It would still be charming cut with straight or rounded edges.
This pattern is also pleasing cut as a gift tag. I used a Sizzix thinlit die (659072) for the tag. Again, even with a straight bottom and angled corners, this would still be charming.
