Toothpaste Tube Shaped Gift Bags

Hey I’m back again and today I have these fun Toothpaste Tube Shaped Gift Bags.


I was looking back at my old tutorials and saw my Large Gift Pouch video and thought it would look nice with a circular base rather then a square.

Check out the Tutorial for this style below.

By simply changing the base you get a very different look, one that I thought resembled a Toothpaste Tube.


To make these you will need…

1 piece of 12 x 12 paper, I used the Mermaid Coast paper pack by Craft Smith, as I mentioned in the video this is an American company and only stocked at Micheal’s,  I’ve found it on Amazon in the link above but its again from America, I cant find any available in the UK, sorry, I will keep looking though.

You need your bottom side of the 12 x 12 paper along the left hand side of your score board and score at 1.1/2, then rotate that side so its now running along the top of your score board and score at every 1/2″ but only up to that score line you just scored.

Circle die measuring approximately 3.1/2, you will need to die cut 2 circles.

Clip to fasten or you can hole punch the top and use ribbon to tie it closed.

Sentiment of your choice.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made them.

As always I hope you like this unusual gift bag and give it a go. Remember to share any of your makes on my Mixed Up Craft Facebook page or use the Hashtag #mixedupcraft so I can find your makes that way.


Happy crafting

    Thank you for this email with the link to your Blog post.

    Thank you for inspiring me.




  2. Hi Sam,

    Yes it is an unusual shaped bag/box but it is very roomy and the shape is quite appealing and it is not difficult to make (always a bonus!) I assume that you would be able to make it in different sizes smaller the same way.
