I made a tutorial on how to make this simple gift bag.
Cut 2 pieces of cardstock: 5x12" and 5x2.5".
Score the large piece of cardstock at 4", 5.5", 9.5" and 11" which leaves a flap of 1" that you need to assemble the bag. Make sure you face the right side of your cardstock down.
Score all sides of the small piece of cardstock at 0.5".
Cut off all corners of the small piece of cardstock. This piece is the bottom of your bag.
Glue all edges of the small piece of cardstock and adhere to the large piece of cardstock.
Your bag now looks like this.
Cut 2 handles for the bag. I used the Coluzzle circle template.
Adhere your design to bag.
Adhere the handles to bag.
Fleur really liked my gift bag, and asked if I would like to make some bags for her birthday party. She is celebrating her birthday in December, so enough time to make some bags.
To all Dutch visitors of my blog....the Scor-it Mini and 12x12" Scor-it can be bought at Dolls & Decorations in Almere. The Scor-it is available in inches and centimeters, but since we are used to metric measurements Petra sells the boards featuring a ruler in centimeters.
Don't forget to check the 2 Sketches 4 You blog to see Kazan's card and the other DT girls' cards. They made gorgeous projects again. I am so happy to be part of this amazing and talented team.
It is really great to see how enthusiastic some of the 2S4Y fans are....the first cards are already posted. Thank you all so much for playing along.

Kazan's Sketch #9
Monday, Monday....it is that day of the week again, and you know what it means, right? Yep...a new sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You. Sketch #9 already...this week designed by Kazan. I always make cards based on the weekly sketches, but this time I decided to create a little gift bag. There are (electronic) die-cutting machines that easily create a gift bag for you, but I made one myself using the Scor-it tool. A great tool for making perfect scores. And you know what....you can win one including a tote if your card is chosen as Card of the Week. Scor-it is our sponsor again. So.....why wait? Hop on over to 2 Sketches 4 You and make a card based on Kazan's sketch.
