Make your own Gift Bag with Matching card and envelope

We made gift bags and cards at class last night.  This is a "one sheet wonder"... you get the bag, card and envelope from 1 sheet of 12x12 paper. 

Cut your 1 sheet at the 8 ¼ mark with the pattern is “facing north” so vertical on the 8 ¼ when you sheet is cut 12 x 8 ¼ - see diagram, the arrow shows the direction of your pattern and the line is at 8 ¼.  

I used a sheet from Christmas Around the world.

Gift bag
Score at 4 ¼, 5 ¾, 10, 11 ½ on the long side.

On the short side score at 1 and 7 (7 is at the bottom of the bag) see diagram to the right.  Fold on the score lines (making a cuff for the top).  Remove 2 squares that are at the top and bottom edge of the bag that are 1 1/4 x 1/2 and 1 x 1/2.  

Cut the tabs: cut up 1 ¼ “ from the bottom. Notch the tabs. Make sure the cuff is folded over and adhere the bag together.  You’ll need to glue down the 2 corners of your cuff, I used liquid glue.  

Punch 4  1/8”  holes in the top.  Add 9” ribbon to each side of the bag. If you put something heavy inside add a piece cardboard at the bottom to reinforce it.  

Super easy - I hope you try it!

Don't forget the Online Sale and on Nov 27 we have a 24 hour sale!
