I made this cute little gift bag a few weeks ago and have just now gotten around to posting it! (Story of my life- procrastination and always running late do NOT mix!)
So simple to make!
I used a 5" wide brown paper bag as a base.
To cover the bag, I cut 2 pieces of patterned cardstock to 5"x5" (one for each side of the bag). I layered another piece of cardstock on top- this one cut to 4.25"x4.25".
I folded the top 2" of the bag over (as a flap to cover the opening) and cut 1 piece of cardstock to 5"x2" and cut another piece .25" smaller to layer on top.
The square flap base is cut at 3". I added 2 layers on top of it, each cut .25" smaller than the one before.
The rosette was super simple to make too!
Here's s quick video to show you how to make one. (Courtesy of splitcoaststampers.com)
To assemble the bag:
Glue all appropriate layers together.
Attach the 5" pieces directly to the front and back of the bag.
Before attaching the 5"x2" to the folded bag, cut a piece of ribbon 6" long (for a handle) and attach each end to the 2" folded flap of the paper bag--then attach the cardstock layers over the glued ribbon ends.
Attach the Rosette to the 3" square, then attach the top half of the square to folded flap.
Stamp a sentiment or add any other embellishments as desired.
You could make any size bag you'd like by adjusting the cut paper sizes accordingly.
