Bag in a box!

Next up are the instructions for 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.




Supplies

Accessories Crop a dile, tab, Oval scallop, medium oval, and scallop edge punches, Stampin dimensionals, Scallop oval movers and shapers die, Old Olive ribbon, Sticky strip

Tips
Lacy effect at the bottom is done with crop a dile after punching.
Use craft ink as it is a pigment die and will cover DSp better than classic Ink
The movers and shapers dies are wonderful because they coordinate with our punches so you can get wonderful layering! Best new thing I love!

Thanks for looking Virginia I will be posting sporadically next week because I will be at convention Yeah!
