Next, I have a little holiday gift bag to share with you too! 🙂
It is simple enough to create and large enough to hold a good batch of Christmas goodies! 🙂 This bag is simply a version of the 2-4-6-8 box. Here I took a full sheet of 12×12 The Merry Days Of Christmas “Santa’s Forest” paper and scored at 2″, 5 1/2″, 7 1/2″ & 11″. I then turned the sheet one quarter turn and scored across the bottom at 2″. I then cut from the bottom of the sheet up the short score lines to the 2″ score and folded the tabs in to create the bottom of the bag. I then adhered the tabs, and the side edge. Then I just took a scrap of “Peppermint Stripes” paper and cut it 3″ wide and punched along one edge to create a scalloped border, folded it over the top of the bag and punched two holes to tie three colors of May Arts ribbons through to hold it closed. I used another scrap of “Peppermint Stripes” and Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangle NestieTM to create the mat for my main image layer. I added a few Making Memories Trees & a Poinsettia, a “to from” stamp from Renaissance By Design and boom, gifty bag complete! 🙂 Enjoy!
