I want to do this tutorial to show you how I made this Gift Bag. First I used this bag I bought from Michael's, it measures 4 5/8” x 8 1/2”. I cut 3 inches off the top.
Next I folded the flap down in order to glue on my design paper which measures 4 3/4” x 5 1/2”.
Here are the supplies I used. The Design paper under the bag measures 4 3/4” x 7 1/4”. Scored at 1 1/2. This piece is glued on to the back of the bag with the folded edge extending at the top. I then glued my front on to the bag which measures 4 3/4” x 5 1/2”. If you want to add a sentiment to the paper, do it before you glue the paper down.
A cute scalloped edge was cut out with Die-namics Small Scallop Border. I sewed this onto the flap, but if you want you could glue it on. Don’t forget to add a sentiment at the top.
I colored and framed the Pure Innocence - Don't Open Until stamp, Using sticky strip, I positioned the top third of my sweet PI to the flap.
Here is the finished product. This is a nice size gift package and would hold a lot of different gifts. Hope you can play along, I’m excited to see what you can come up with!!
