Tutorial for Gift Bag

Tutorial to make bag to attach to front of card

1. To make base of bag cut a piece of black cardstock 11cm x 3 cm

Score 1 cm in around each edge. (I have shown the score line with the white dotted lines as it doesn’t show up on black). A little bit fiddly as you are really making a tiny bag

2. Cut to the score line on each edge as shown in the picture trim each of the corners.

3. Attach red sticky strip to the four little corner tabs and make into a box.

4. Cut 2 pieces of Newsprint DSP 7.5 x 16 cm mark in 1cm along the bottom and draw a diagonal line to the top corner on each side (as shown by the red line) cut this section off.

5. Attach red tape to three sides of the back of one piece and along the bottom on the other piece.

6. Remove the tape from the piece that only has one piece of tape and attach to the base of the box, this is the back of the bag

7. Remove the tape from the other sheet and attach to the front and sides.

8. Cut a 2 pieces of black card stock 2cm x 30 cm use the scallop punch to create the scallop border for the top and bottom of the bag. I trimmed a bit off the top scallop strip to make that a bit thinner than the bottom one. Apply adhesive and attach to bag starting from the front. It doesn’t have to go all the way around but I did anyway as this gets stuck to your card and isn’t seen.

9. Flatten bag a little add brads to the front and some ribbon for handles as per the picture at the start. Attach this to your card. Have fun with your creations…
