Perfectly Plaid - Fold Flat Gift Bag - Video Tutorial

I really like today's Video project! It's such a simple bag, but having it fold flat is what make's it special.

Fold Flat bags are so much easier to store and are less likely to be damaged, you can also store so many more of them together taking up much less space than conventional Bags.

I created two sets - at first glance, they may look the same, but I've used different designs of paper on each.

The Bag shown here is the one you can see me create in the Video below.

I used paper from the Feels Like Frost 6" Designer Series Paper pack. The Gift Bag measures 6" x 6" x 2" so I was able to use a full sheet of paper for the front.

I used the Perfectly Plaid stamp set to decorate it. The Pine Trees were stamped using Versamark and heat embossed with Silver powder.

Here it is folded flat - not the easiest thing to show in a photo :o)

I created the cards to coordinate with the Gift Bags and kept the design similar, but even simpler.

The sentiments on both the cards and the Bags were die cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies.

Here is the Video ...

Beautiful bag & card set. I watched the video and printed the measurements to try it myself. I bought the beautiful DSP last year and still have several sheets left. Wish me luck!
