A really big gift bag with Warm Hugs designer paper

My amazing team leader Suzie Barnes designed this "Big Bag".  I love it!  

It finished at 7 1/2" high and has a depth of 3", so it holds a lot.

Ingredients: 2 sheets Mossy Meadow 8 ½ x 9 ½ scored (on the 8 ½ at 5 and 8) and (on the 9 ½ at 7), 24” of ribbon, 12” of gold cord, DSP 2x5”

Burnish score lines with a bone folder.  Trim the tabs at the bottom of the bag. Attach the 2 pieces together on the 9 1/2 side so you end up with a long 16 1/2 piece (by 9 1/2).  Now attach the other side to make a box. Close the bottom.  

Adhesive, I suggest tear n tape or the new Seal+ both are strong adhesives.

Decorate your bag by first attaching your DSP (designer series paper) and then punching holes for the ribbon.  I used the matching Mossy Meadow ribbon. Attach a tag. 

I hope you make one!  I know you have cardstock and pretty paper and ribbon in your stash.  So it's a fun easy and practical!  And if you anything, my online store is a click away (just click on the cart), fun customer rewards this month :)
