Today I found a link for a cute little gift bag that may work for our LMNOP Christmas bag exchange. I tried making the gift bag out of non-themed paper because I currently do not have a stash of Christmas paper. I just wanted to make sure the bag would work.
You can find the online tutorial that I followed here- http://andreawalford.com/stampin-up-template-thursday-purse-in-a-box
Overall I think the bag is cute. I am not happy with the tabs at the top so I will figure out something else for those. And I am thinking about doing a border punch at the top so it doesn’t look so plain. The directions say to use a scallop punch but I just used one of my border punches and I like the effect. Although….I think I should have used the other side of the paper because they don’t stand out very well.
The only drawback I see is that it isn’t very sturdy. So it would be ideal for something like a gift card but I am not sure it’s very practical for much else….
