Gift Holder Tutorial by Carole Kisch

by Carole Kisch

Today I have a tutorial for you ~ a holiday gift bag that you can make using one piece of 12x12" patterned paper, two brads, and your favourite festive embellies. I used SRM Stickers; Winter Wishes #51009 and BasicGrey.



Step 1:
Choose a piece of 12x12 patterned paper. Score at 1, 5, 6, 7 and 11 inches.



Step 2:
Rotate your paper one quarter turn and score at 3-1/2 and 8-1/2 inches.



Step 3: Fold your paper at your 1-inch and 11-inch score lines, and at the 3-1/2 and 8-1/2 inch score lines. You will end up with a sleeve that looks like this...



Step 4: Fold along the 5, 6 and 7-inch score lines. Your middle line will form the inside peak of the gift bag...



Step 5: Attach two brads to the inside panels of the bag...



Add your sentiment...






Add your gift cards...



And you're finished!





Thank you, Carole! We have a special treat for you tomorrow -- Guest Designer, Sarah Martina Parker! You will love what she's done with SRM Stickers.
