Video Tutorial - Guy Greetings Class - Gift Bag

In last month's Project Class I included this little Gift Bag. It's a great size, measuring 5 ¼” wide and about 4 ¼” high - just perfect for some sweet treats or a small gift. 

I used more of the True Gentlemen Designer Series Paper and decorated it with a bow, created using our Bow Builder punch.

Here is the Video showing you how to make it. I use A4 standard card as I am based in the UK. If you use 8½” x 11" you will find all the measurements you need below in brackets.

Scoring: A4 Lemon Lime Twist Sheet of Card         (US - 8½” x 11")

With the Long Side across the top, score down at:
4 ⅛",  5 ⅝",  9 ¾”  and  9 ⅞"      (US - 3 ¾”,  5 ¼”, 9"  and 9 ⅛")

With the Short Side across the top, score down at:
1 ½”  and  6 ¾”                            (US - 1 ½”  and  7")


Front of Gift Bag:
12.7cm x 9.8cm - Berry Burst card           (US - 5 ¼” x 3 ½” )
12.4cm x 9.5cm - Naturally Eclectic DSP    (US - 5" x 3 ¼” )

Top/Front of Gift Bag:
12.7cm x 4.2cm - Berry Burst card            (US - ¼” x 1 ⅝")
12.4cm x 3.8cm - Naturally Eclectic DSP     (US - 5" x 1 ⅜")

Ribbon 40cm            (US 17" approx.)

NOTE: If you are using US measurements, your Gift Bag will be slightly shorter but wider than the one I made :o)

I used a Velcro Dot as the closure, but you could just as easily use strong magnets.

I'm in love with these...and thanks so much for the variations, alternative measurements and video. So CUTE and I like including masculine ideas with a feminine option. I could see this with a future fishing pole dsp for an outdoorsy bag.
