Good morning everyone! It’s Jen here today, and I want to show you how to make a quick and easy gift bag with a matching card.
Let’s start with the box.
Trim a piece of cardstock to 7.5”x11” Holding the paper horizontally, score at 1.5”, 5.25”, 6.75”, and 10.5”. Then flip vertically, and score at 6”
Next, cut from the bottom of the cardstock (along the 1.5”, 5.25”, 6.75”, and 10.5” scorelines) up to the 6” score you made earlier. You’ll also have to cut off the bottom corner.
At this point I die cut the scalloped circle and butterflies. On the backside, I adhered a herringbone screen printed paper so that the design peeks through. Behind the window, I adhered a piece of the Hambly Clearly Heavy Overlay. I love how thick and sturdy it is! Once I finished decorating the front, I folded it all up. Here’s the detail on the finished bag:
Since I had all of these scraps and goodies on my table when I was done, I used them to make a matching card. I used the positive die cuts from both the window and the butterflies, and of course incorporated more of that amazing herringbone paper.
