Hi all, it's Annie and today I'm back with a tutorial to create a darling little gift bag with the Bo Bunny Harmony Collection that's perfect for baby showers, weddings, or just to send a happy hello!
Start by scoring the “wrong side” of a full sheet of 12” x 12” patterned paper from the Bo Bunny Harmony Collection at two inches from the top.
Turn the paper over and rotate it ninety degrees. Then score it at 3 1/8” and 8 7/8”.
Fold the top flap downward as shown and crease the score line well with a bone folder. Then add a decorative sticker border from the collection to the bottom of the flap.
Turn the sheet over and fold the two side flaps into the center. Crease the score lines well and then adhere the flaps together with a strong adhesive like Scor-Tape.
Score the bag at two inches from the bottom and fold it up, making sure to crease the fold well. (This will create a tall, skinny gift bag…for a shorter and wider bag, crease the bag higher during this step.)
Open the bottom flap and flatten it out by pressing the edges toward the center as shown. Crease all folds well with a bone folder.
Fold the top and bottom flaps of the base inward to meet in the center and hold in place with a small piece of tape. Trim a piece of coordinating paper from the collection to 3.75” x 2” and adhere it to the bottom for extra stability and a finished look.
Score each side 0.75” from the edge and crease the folds well to create the side folds.
Open the bag up and embellish it with the large chipboard sticker and flowers and banners from the Noteworthy pack in the collection.
Punch holes in the top of the bag about an inch from each side and string ribbon through both the front and back sides of the bag. Add a tag from the Noteworthy pack to the handle before tying each ribbon end in a knot on the inside of the bag.
Enjoy your new handmade gift bag…add treats or small gifts for a baby shower, wedding, or just a cheerful hello!
