Welcome to my Blog & thank you for stopping by! Today i have a huge gift bag for you. I was inspired by a tutorial i did myself about 2/3 years ago. It was much smaller than this but the same concept. The only real difference was a die cut strip i did on the bag. With this bag being A4, a die will not fit on the bag plus you would not be able to to fit it through a machine (unless you have an A4 machine). Instead of a die i did one of my favourite craft techniques! Heat embossing! I used to do so much of this a while back & i get asked all the time if i can start doing it again in my tutorials.
As you can see from the picture above, the bag has a really fancy fold on the sides. The smaller bag was also the same fold. I thought it would be a great idea to make a larger one. Its so easy to make and you only need 3 pieces of A4 card. I reinforced the top folds of the bag so that it hold up from being opened and closed. My bag closes with Velcro but you could also use Magnets or maybe ribbon. You could also add some handles if you wish. I hope you like it and will give it a try. I think it would be great to gift Make-Up or toiletries for Christmas.
