Flap over Gift Bag

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing gift bag number 4 of my Handbag Series.

Double Flap Over Bag

This Double Flap Over Bag was inspired by a Valentino Garavani leather handbag from 2001!

This gift bag is more slimline and would be great for holding a book or a box of chocolates.

You can fold it flat if you like to make your gift bags in advance and store them away for later.
