Gift Bag

This little gift bag is quick & east to make using a piece of scrapbook paper & some ribbon.

You need a piece of scrapbook paper cut 6-1/2" x 12".  Score paper at 1", 2", 5-3/4", 6-3/4", 7-3/4", & 11-1/2".  Score 1-1/2" from the bottom, along the 12" length.  Cut out 4 triangles at bottom as shown in diagram.  Remove the 1-1/2" x 1/2" strip next to the 4th triangle.

Fold on score lines into shape of gift bag & glue.  Cut (2) 7" strips of ribbon for the handles.  Punch holes 3/4" from top to thread ribbon through.  Tape ribbon on the inside.  Decorate as you like.  The tag on this gift bag was cut out from Cricut Cartridge "Winter Lace".
Happy Holidays!

Tis the Season Blog Hop

Thank you so much for stopping by my “Addicted to Scrapbooking” Blog as you make your way from Susan Pollock’s Blog through our ‘Tis The Season Blog Hop.

After making several Christmas Cards I decided to do something different. This little Gift bag was made with my Cricut / Gypsy using the Create A Critter cartridge for the Penguin & his Igloo and the Joys of the Season cartridge for the snowflakes. The tag is stamped.

Please check out the Christmas Cards posted below that I made last month also!  But don't forget to  hop on over to Iva Young’s Blog to see what she has created!

I welcome your "comments" and invite you to "follow" my Blog!
