Looking for a fun way to package some holiday goodies? Do you have any brown paper lunch bags hanging around in your cabinets? Mix a couple of lunch bags with Bo Bunny's Dear Santa I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella.com and you've got yourself some really cute holiday goodie bags! Happy Holidays, Apryl with you today with FotoBella's design team sharing a tutorial on how to make this cute bag.
Supplies Needed: Dear Santa Bundle-Gift tag paper, Ephemera pack, Combo Sticker Sheet
Tools: Scissors, Ruler, Big Bite or Crop a dile (hole punch)
Step 1: Gather your supplies from the Bo Bunny Dear Santa bundle
Step 2: Select your lunch bag.
Step 3: Fold the top of the bag over so that the flap is approximately 2 1/2 inches. Be sure that the bottom flap of the bag is face down.
Step 4: Measure across the flap you just folded in order to place to dots, centered to the flap. In this case, the flap measures six inches, so I place the dots at 2 1/2 inches and 3 1/2 inches.
Step 5: Use the Big Bite, on the large hole punch setting, and punch both holes.
Step 6: Choose the polka dot paper from the Ephemera pack. In my case, the paper fits the bag without having to be trimmed down. Adhere the paper to the bag, leaving the top without adhesive.
Step 7: Select the Gift Tag Paper from the bundle and fussy cut out three ornaments.
Step 8: Embellish the ornaments using Stickles.
Step 9: Thread the ornaments with twine
Step 10: Tuck the twine behind the top edge of the polka dot paper so that the ornaments dangle down in front of the bag.
Step 11: Thread the two holes in bag with the green gingham ribbon. I cut the ribbon to 22 inches. Tie a bow.
Step 12: Using dark brown ink, ink everything. The edges of the bag, the paper, the ornaments.
Step 13: Below the ribbon, place the "Jingle Bells" sticker from the combo sheet.
And there you have it, a cute little bag.
Once you get started, you'll find it to be pretty simple, and want to make several like I did! There are several selections of paper in the Ephemera pack you can use, because they all fit the bags perfectly. Have fun making endless design combinations! Don't forget to get your Bo Bunny Dear Santa Bundle before it's too late!
Happy Holiday crafting!
