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 Brads

4 die cut circles roughly 3/4 in diameter

Check out my full tutorial below showing how I made it.
