Cass Creating Now Tutorial - Gift Bags - 4 March, 2016

Gift Bags 
The quickest and simplest Gift Bags

Edge Punch
Small Hole Punch
I have used Envelope Paper  but you can use card stock.  Your bags will just be stiffer.
Each bag requires 1 piece of paper/card stock 8 x 11.5 inches
Embellishments - Doily; Ribbon
Images I have used "New Bunny Dress," " Priscilla's Thanksgiving" and "Randy Valentines Boy." All of these can be found at Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More Shop.

You need to score the long side at 1/2;  2; 6 and 7.5 inch marks
 Turn to short side and score at 1.5 inch mark

(Tip: if you want to change the size of this bag, just remember that your short side score mark is the same measurement as the narrowest side of the bag - in this case 1.5 inches)

Once scored, crease all folds.

The 1/2 inch fold is the tab.  Cut off below the bottom scoreline
and cut an angled piece from the bottom of the tab.

Cut along the score lines from the bottom to the 1.5 score line on all folds.

Place tape on two short bottoms and one long bottom, also along the tab.  See photo.

Attach the tab to the other end. The bottom pieces will start to fold themselves at this stage.  The order is the larger end that has no tape, then the two short ends. In the picture below you can see the last long end with the tape is ready to fold down.

Here are three bags after the bottoms have been taped down

There are many ways to complete the bags. You can also pinch the sides to give the bag a different shape.

For this bag, I scallop punched the top and folded it over before I stuck down the sides. It has been left open with a bow and image attached.  Chocolates for my Love in this bag.

This bag has pinched sides, 2 small holes punched, ribbon threaded 
through bag and tag and tied off in a bow to close the top and an image added. It might be nice to have some cookies in here.

This bag also has pinched sides and has been closed with tape on a doily.  I printed the image twice in mirror and placed both on the bag.  I'm thinking Easter Eggs.

Hope you enjoy making some bags for gifts and treats.
