Tuesday tip by mia.t

So it's tuesday and my time to share a tip.
Autumn time means halloween and countdown for christmas and that's when giftbags might come in handy. This is a giftbag that I make quite often and now I'm going to share with you how to create it.

Start with a piece of cardstock in size 8½ by 11 inches. Use a bone folder and score like this:
From the shorter side (vertically in the picture) score at 2½ and 6 inches.
From the longer (horisontal in the picture) score at 4½ and 6½ inches.
To convert the measurements to cm just multiply with 2,5 (1 inch is 2,5cm)
You should also fold the corners as shown on all four sides.
Make sure you fold all sides both ways to make the paper smooth to work with.
Place four pieces of tape on the back like this.
Place four pieces of tape on the front triangles.

 Fasten the sides one by one like the pictures show.
First the bigger piece of tape.

 and the the smaller triangular piece
Two sides ready...

After fastening all four sides your giftbag should look like this from above.

Make to pages to decorate your bag. Here I've used patterned paper
 and theese stamps from Stämpelkällan:

You need a clip to close the bag and I put a tag on it with this sentiment:

This is what the giftbag looks like when it's finished.
front side:

and back side.

Hope this tip didn't seem too tricky for you.
It's really quite easy once you've tried it out ;)
Have a nice tuesday!
Hugs Mia

  1. Så fin påse! Går det att få måtten på svenska också? ;) /Gunilla

  2. Hejsan, för att omvandla måtten på påsen till cm är det lättast att gångra med 2,5. Alltså en inch är ca 2,5 cm.
