Hi everyone, I have a huge gift bag to share today which I’m giving to a friend.
This is so big, I struggled to get a full photo of it!
I used the beautiful ‘A Touch Of Romance’ paper pack by The Paper Tree.
The papers are wonderful and such good value for money.
Check out the full Paper Tree collection here.
I’ve many large gift bags over the years and always like to add a spin on each one.
This one has a drop down side, a front pocket and pretty mirrored card detail.
As with most of my gift bags, this one folds flat.
The tassel detail, gift tag and pocket all finish it off perfectly.
To make this gift bag you will need…
2 pieces of 12 x 12 pattern paper for the front and back of the bag.
Score one piece at 2″
2 piece of 6″ x 9″ pattern paper for the sides of the gift bag.
Score along the 9″ side at 1″
Score along 6″ side at 1″ & 5″
Then Score again along the 9″ side at 3″ but only between the 1″ & 5″ scorelines, you previously scored.
Then score once more along the 6″ side at 2″ down to the first score line.
1 piece of 12″ x 6″ strong card for the base.
Score along the 6″ side at 1″ & 5″
1 piece of 9.1/2 x 6″ pattern paper for the pocket.
Score along the 9.1/2 side at 1″
Score along the 6″ side at 1/4″, 1/2″ & 3/4″ and then at 8.3/4, 9″ & 9.1/4
1 piece of 3.1/2 x 8″ coloured card for the pocket closure.
Score along the 3.1/2 side at 1″
4 pieces of 1″ x 2″ mirrored cardstock to decorate the bottom of the handles.
4 pieces of 1″ x 12″ coloured cardstock for the handles.
20 mirrored card circles approximately 1/2″ diameter. I used a punch I got from Hobbycraft ages ago.
For instructions on how to make the tassels please check out the video, I’ve shared further below.
Check out my full tutorial below.
This bag measures 12″ x 4″ x 12″ so lots of space for some nice gifts.
Below is the video showing how you can make the tassels.
The cute pocket on the front is the perfect place to put a card or gift voucher.
As always thank you for stopping by today and remember to share anything you make, inspired by my tutorials over on my Facebook group Mixed Up Crafters.
Have a great week
