Circles this week

This week over at Late night stampers the challenge I am designing for is all about circles! Well I really got in gear this week and have several projects to share with you the first one is this cute little gift bag. I have seen the instructions on several blogs and wanted to make my own.So I will show you the instructions I first saw on Splitcoast but I made some adjustments so I can better utilize paper! Here is the tutorial from Splitcoaststampers

In an effort to save paper with a few changes to some of the measurements. I got the idea from
from 321 stamp's blog Theses are her instructions I am sharing with you. Here is what you will change;
  • Start with a 4 1/4" card stock square for the box
  • Score 7/8" from each of the 4 edges (that's INSTEAD OF the 1" in Diana's version)
  • Also adjust the size of the printed Designer Series Paper that's wrapped around the box to make the bag. Mine is 6" by 10 1/2".
  • Lastly I adjusted the size of the strip that's around the bottom of the box/bag. Mine started as 1 1/4" by 10 1/2" and then one long edge was punched with SU's Scallop Border Punch (item # 112091) which then makes it a little narrower.
