I get asked quite often how I make my gift bags so I thought I would do a tutorial :)
There are a lot of photos but I've tried to make it as simple as possible and hopefully the pictures will explain it better than I can write it! If there's anything that is not clear, let me know and I'll try to help :)
It's made with 2 sheets of A4 card scored EXACTLY the same.
To start, lay your card portrait (short edge to the top) on your scoring board
Score at 5cm and 19 cm
Turn the card 90 degrees
anti-clockwise so the card is landscape.
Score at 21cm and 29cm.
Score at 25cm, down as far as 12cm from the top edge.
Score from the 12cm mark to the corner of the score lines to the left and right. You should have a triangle shape.
I have marked the score lines with a pencil so you can see them clearly.
Cut the card as shown in the picture.
Cut from the bottom up to the first score line.
Fold the top downwards along the score line and fold the bottom upwards along the score line.
Fold two of the vertical score lines towards the left.
Fold the centre score line back as shown in the picture.
Fold the triangle score lines back.
Turn the card over so the outside is facing up and apply tape to the small flap on the left.
Lay the two pieces of card side by side as shown in the picture.
Tape both together making sure to line up the top and bottom fold lines.
You can now stamp or embellish your bag.
Turn it over so the inside is facing up.
Tape together, lining up the score lines.
