You can hang this bag over your shoulders due to the longer handles.

The papers I chose were purchased recently from The Works but unfortunately, my mum used the cover pages from the paper packs so I’m unable to tell you the names of them, however, I have found this one on their website which is very similar.

The Works Online Shop.

  1. After a few days of frantic searching, I’ve found the second paper pack you feature in the video for your beautiful large tote gift bag. It is Mix & Match Craft Sensations English Moments. Ordered mine from Ebay UK seller tradeforyouuk. It was a little pricey because I’m from the US but that’s okay! Thank you for all your lovely designs — I look for your new content every day! Best, Stacy

  2. Thank you for letting me know about other sellers for the paper pack, I will check it out. So pleased you enjoy my designs. Happy crafting 🙂

  3. So beautiful! Going to make some Christmas ones. Can you tell me how much you sell yours for?
