Team Meeting - Make and Take - Gift Bag Punch Board

Last night I held my Monthly Meeting for my Team :o)

It's always fun being with them and of course we always do some crafting.

This is the project I designed for their Make and Take. It's another Gift Bag Punch Board project .... but not quite the standard one.

I used the Flower Patch stamp set. I've been wanting to spend time with this set for ages now but the time just hasn't been right :o) So ... i was determined to use it for this month's meeting. 

I used a piece of Designer Series Paper (The one shown has now retired) measuring 10" x 8". I used the 'Large' score line for the main front and back panels.

When creating the sides, I lined the previous score line up with the Triangle 'Side' line instead of the 'Start' line - and I omitted scoring the Triangle. This gave me sides 1" deep instead of the normal 2".

I turned the DSP round to the opposite side and scored on the  'Horizontal' line right the way across. It was then just a case of punching on the score lines for the front and back sections  to create the panels to fold down. I removed the Tabs at the top of the side sections. 

All the Tabs on the base were trimmed to 1" before the bag was put together.
