8″ x 3″ x 7″ Fold Flat Gift Bags

Hello everyone, today I have these fold flat gift bags made using 8″ x 8″ papers.

8" x 3" x 7" Fold Flat Gift Bags

This tutorial has been requested by a few people and is a great way to use up some of those 8″ x 8″ paper pads.

I went a little crazy and made 10 of these gift bags, this will make a great item to sell at a craft fair, donate for a raffle or gift as a gift, it’s also great to just fill up your own stash!

These beautiful papers are the Christmas Tale collection by The Paper Tree.

To make these you will need…

2 pieces of 8″ x 8″ pattern paper.

Score one piece at 1.1/2 & 7.1.8

Score the other piece at just 7.1/8

2 pieces of 4″ x 8″ for the sides of the bag.

Score both pieces along the 8″ side 1″ & 2.1/2

Score along the other side at 1/2″ & 3.1/2 and then at 2″ down to the first scoreline.

1 piece of 4″ x 8″ for the base.

Score along the 4″ side at 1/2″ & 3.1/2

My ribbon was 10.1/2 long, you will need 2 pieces.

  1. And another brilliant idea and tutorial. Thank you, Sam, for the never ending inspiration. Best, Jutta

  2. Thank you so much for this, I am happily cutting, scoring and sticking at the moment. I work in a Psychiatric Hospital and every year make a ton of gifts that can be sold to raise money to buy the patients, christmas, easter, birthday etc. I came across your website earlier this year and have made so many of your samples (in bulk).

  3. What a perfect bag for those 8X8 pieces of cardstock or DSP!!! Love the bags & on my list of bags to make for the holiday season. TYFS

  4. Love your video and how quick and efficient it was. So easy to follow and your explanations are spot on. The bags are so sweet and would be a big seller. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful talents and inspiring.

  5. Love this great project, can’t wait to try making some! Thanks for sharing.
