Small Purse Gift Bag - Using Woven Heirlooms - Video Tutorial

Today's Video shows you how I created these small Purse Gift Bags. 

They measure 5 3/8" wide at the base. The sides are 2" and the bag is 4" high.

This is a little project I've had in my head for quite a while - ever since I saw the Magnolia Memory dies. I thought the little edge die in the set would look so nice at the top of a gift bag :o)

This was my first sample. I actually incorporated a hidden magnetic closure in the top but didn't really like the 'pinched in' look it gave the bag, so I didn't include it with my other samples.

The paper is from the Woven Threads Designer Series paper pack. This whole pack is beautiful BUT the designs made it very hard to see my scored lines! I thought the second design I chose (below) would be easier, but it wasn't! :o)

The lovely ribbon I used for the handles is the Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen ribbon. 

I used a couple of dies from the Ornate Frames set to create the Tag. The little Seaside Spray flourish came from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set and the sentiment comes from the New Wonders Host set.

Here is the Video ...


Woven Threads DSP - Front / Back (2)                                          7”x 5 

With the LONG side across the top, score down at: 2” and 6”
Turn the paper so the 1” scored section is on the top. 
Score down at ½” and 4⅞” to the FIRSTscored line only.

Woven Threads DSP - Sides (2)                                                     6” x 3” 

With the LONG side across the top score down at 2”.
With the SHORT side across the top and the 2” scored section at the BOTTOM, score down at ½” and 2½” and then do a PARTIAL score at 1½”, down to 3” only.

Don’t forget to finish scoring your Triangles! 

Ribbon (2)                                                                          21cm (8¼”) approx.
Baker’s Twine                                                                    30cm (12”) approx.
To create the Tag you will need Whisper White and Terracotta Tile cardstock for stamping and die-cutting.
