Gift Bag Tutorial

Hi everyone, welcome to todays blog. I love making sets of cards in a pretty gift bag or box.I recently made a set of cards and I wanted something a little different to the ones I have made in the past, so I came up with this cute little bag.


It can, of course be used for any gift, but it holds a set of 4 notelets and envelopes, to give you a rough idea of what you can fit in it.

I enoyed using this set of Designer Series Paper, its called By The Shore and I think it’s very bright and cheery. I also love my Petite Petals stamp set and the lovely punch that goes with it, so this was a lovely excuse to use these!

To make this bag you will need a piece of card or DSP that measures 10.5 x 10.5″

Score on one side at 1″, 4.75″, 5.75″ and 10″

Turn and score at 1″ and 6.25″

You will find the instructions to make this bag in the video, and all the products I used will be listed at the bottom of this blog.

I would love for you to go and have a look at my video and have a go at making this cute little bag.

Thanks for stopping by, have a crafty week!

The lovely sketch for this month was provided for us by Anna Krol:


Thank you Anna for this lovely sketch, I had loads of ideas and it was hard to pin it down to one! In the end I went with a bit of  mixture of my original ideas. 

I adore the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and the lovely Cookie Cutter punch that went with it. It is so versatile it doesn’t have to be used just for Christmas – you can use it to make this adorable little bear!


I have a few paper packs that I haven’t used much so I decided to have a look through them to decide which papers to use. I settled on this gorgeous pink spotty paper from the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper pack. Rich Razzleberry is one of my current favourite colours so it worked really well to team this up with the lovely pink paper and also the Crumb Cake spotty paper.

A couple of bits of bling and it’s good to go (the paperclip bows are so cute!) Now I just need someone I know  to have a baby girl!

Thank you for stopping by, please take the time to go to the next and previous blogs to see what lovely projects Keren Howell and Hannah McCurley have made with this sketch.
