Hello everyone, I was looking back through my tutorials and I saw my Briefcase Style Gift Bags and thought it would be nice to make a mini version.
These are so cute and will make perfect party favours also.
I’ve used the new First Edition “Forever Free” papers and matching cutout parts.
We often forget about the back of our gift bags and boxes so I decided to add these cute Simply Creative Champagne, Balloon & Heart die cuts to them
As you can see they are pretty roomy and close with a simple velcro dot.
To make these you will need…
1 piece of 8″ x 12″ cardstock for the main base of your bag.
Score along the 12″ side at 5″ & 7″
2 pieces of 3″ x 6″ cardstock for your side panels.
Score along the 3″ side at 1/2″ & 2.1/2, and also score at 1.1/2 down to 3.1/2. Then rotate your cardstock and score along the 6″ side at 5″
1 piece of 4″ x 8″ cardstock for your flap.
Score along the 4″ side at 1″
1 piece of 7.3/4 x 2.3/4 of pattern paper to decorate your flap.
2 pieces of 3/4″ x 8″ cardstock strips to decorate the front and back of your gift bag.
2 pieces of 1/2″ x 8″ of pattern paper strips to mat on top of your cardstock.
1 piece of 10.1/2 x 1″ cardstock for your handle.
1 piece of 3/4″ x 10.1/2 pattern paper to decorate your handle.
Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made them.
I love the huge cut out parts that come in the paper pack, they instantly finish off your papercraft projects perfectly.
I love all the bright colours in this pack.
Thank you for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend.
