Hi friends, I recently shared this wonderful fold flat gift bag inspired by a very expensive designer handbag!
I love making gift bags especially ones that look like handbags, and if they fold flat, even better as I can make loads and keep them stored away easily.
The bag is very simple to make, it’s all the detail that takes time and gives it that designer look.
I adore the padlock and the hidden key!
I’ve snipped the bottom of the padlock so that it can really lock the gift bag together.
It’s up to you if you want the gift bag to fold flat.
