Post#82 Green Slim Gift Bag

I am very excited to share today’s project with you…Its a gift bag with an open top… and I came up with all the dimensions myself…someone else may have made it before but I did not look up any tutorials at all…this was my attempt at learning the basics of creating a gift bag of a particular size with specific measurements…
I started with an A4 size cardstock and trimmed the length to 11-1/2″….I kept the width of the paper as is at 8-1/4″ so the dimensions of the paper are 11-1/2″ x 8-1/4″
Then I scored the short side of the paper at 1″…this will be the base of the bag…
The long side was scored at 1″, 5-1/4″,6-1/4″ and 10-1/2″
Staying on the long side I scored a half score line at 1/2″, 5-3/4″ and 11″ 
These part score lines will help the sides of the bag to fold in together a bit easier…
I burnished the score lines and cut all four score lines running upto the 1″ base score line on the short side….then I used a strong adhesive to attach the sides and bottom of the bag…the final bag measures 7″ x 4-1/4″ and is 1″ wide
I used a small doily to cover the top of the bag and punched a hole through all the layers to thread the ribbon for closing the bag…also added a few punched our flowers from white cardstock to decorate the bag…
I had a huge amount of fun creating this bag….Hope you liked it too…
Thanks for stopping by…
