More inspiration and this time from Chinese Fruit Boxes! Seasonal fruits in China are regularly given as gifts in these large beautiful boxes.
We have been lucky to have received a fair few since living hear so I decided to deconstruct one and make up one myself.
I used my lovely papers which I purchased from a clearance book shop in Ningbo, for more info on these check out my Large Gift Pouch YouTube video.
To make these lovely gift bags you will need…
2 pieces of 11 x 8.1/4 card stock
Score along the 11′ side at 3.1/2 and 10.1/2
Score along the 8.1/4 side at 3.1/2 and 6.3/4 then rotate the card to the other 8.1/4 side and score at 3/4 to second score line. Then score back along the 11′ side with side that you just scored running along the top and score at 1 & 2.1/2 to the first score line.
2 pieces of patterned paper 6.7/8 x 3.1/8
2 pieces of 10′ ribbon or string.
4 die cut circles roughly 3/4 in diameter
Check out my full tutorial below showing how I made it.
Hope you enjoyed this and remember to share any of your makes on my Mixed Up Craft Facebook page.
