Welcome to another Fabulous Friday! Today we are going to make an adorable mini gift bag with two pieces of 6″ x 6″ pieces of Designer Series Paper. Now through July 31st you can take advantage of the Buy 3 packs Get 1 free of our gorgeous Designer Series Papers. You can check out all the papers that qualify at my online store. Did you see this morning’s video? If not, you can see it on my YouTube channel. So let’s get started on our bag.

Once you’ve chosen your DSP and cut two pieces at 6″ x 6″, you will score it at 3/4″ at what will be the top of your bag, then 1 1/2″ on the other three sides. Once scored, fold all the score lines. Fold over the 3/4″ side, with the inside of the pattern being folded out. Using your snips, you want to cut two vertical score lines on what will be the bottom of the bag, which is the opposite side of the 3/4″ score line.  Add adhesive on the two squares you’ve snipped and fold in, bring up the bottom. Repeat this on the second piece of paper. Now add adhesive on the inside flaps of one of the bags, then join the two together by nesting one inside the other. You’ve just created your bag! Here’s a look at the backside of the bag.

Now for the tag. Using the Just for You image from the A Good Day stamp set, stamp it in Night of Navy ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. Then punch out the center with the 1″ circle punch. Stamp the image again in Mint Macaron ink on Mint Macaron cardstock and punch out with the 1 3/8″ scalloped circle punch, then adhere together. Punch out a 1 1/2″ circle of Night of Navy and a 1 3/4″ circle of Silver Glimmer Paper and adhere all together. When you are adhering something on the top side of any glimmer paper, use Mini Glue Dot for the best results. Once those are all adhered together, adhere them to the front of the bag. Then you fill with candies or anything else you’d like, and staple the top together. To cover the staple, I added a bow from the Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon and yes, you know that’s my favorite!

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. If you would like any of these products or take advantage of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free promotion, just head over to my online store. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a Fabulous Friday!
