Gold Striped Bags - a bag or a box

These gold striped bags are great as bags, but they are also easy to make into boxes.  

To make a box trim 1/8″ from the bottom then score at 1″ along the bottom,  then score each side at 3/4″. 

Then it’s just a couple of snips up from the bottom to the 1″ score line and you’re ready to fold and adhere.  From flat to gusseted in just a few quick and simple steps! 

I scored my bag first then ran it through the Big Shot with the Holly Embossing Folder before making the cuts.  This is a fun option for you. 

You could add a gold clip and a merry label tag for stamping.  Just add  6” of metallic edge ribbon and gold sequins and clip to the bag.  

You could add metallic washi tape, you could use gold embossing. You could stamp a “to.. From” or a mini Christmas tree from the Watercolor Set.

Super easy and I hope you try it - happy stamping, MaryKate
