I found a tutorial on Youtube for this little gift bag and decided to have a go at making it myself. I don't know the lady's name and I am not 100% sure of her website name but I think it was called something like paper buttons, if you want to check out her video.
I chose to use Stampin' up's card stock and the designer series paper in Blushing Bride.
It's my new favourite colour.
The bag is made from one and a half sheets of 12x12 cardstock
One sheet of the coordinating designer series paper for decorating,
A sheet of white card stock to punch out the flower shapes and tag.
Plus two lengths of ribbon for the handles.
I also used a scrap of glimmer paper for the center of the flower and to cover the button.
I followed the video tutorial step by step until I got to the end panels. Where I added some extra score lines.
I scored lines on the end panels, in an upside down Y shape to make the closing of the bag easier, it looks a little neater than the crumpled folds that form when you close the bag without scoring.
This is a really sturdy little bag when made up and it will hold about six cards and envelopes.
I am thinking this bag filled with handmade colour coordinated cards would make a lovely gift.
Now for my confession this particular bag will never be gifted. As I was attaching the tag I dropped it .....on to an open black ink pad so there is black ink on the base, the back and both the ribbon handles.
