Designer Inspired Gift Bags

Hi friends, on Wednesday I shared these stylish gift bags inspired by a designer one I saw online.

Designer Inspired Gift Bags

These are a good size, measuring 8.1/2 x 3″ x 6.1/2 and are nice and strong too!

I used my Lidl cardstock and the new first Edition, Bloom & Wonder papers.

I really like the use of hardware and the effect the eyelets give.
