Pretty Bags!

 

IMG_1295

Today I’m showing off some bags I made for a cookie exchange I went to last month.  Ever wonder what to do with leftover  Designer Series Paper?  These are fun & simple to make & so pretty!

Directions:

  • Start with 2 pieces of 12 X 12 DSP
  • Score 3 sides at 3″ & the other side at 2″ (top)
  • Fold top down (polka dots in the photo) & crease well.  Do this for both sheets of DSP.
  • For one of the DSP sheets, cut out 2 of the 3″ corners
  • IMG_1288
  • For the other DSP sheet, cut on bottom score lines from the sides in.
  • Glue bottoms together using Tombo.
  • Glue sides together.
  • Add handles & embellish.
  • Add goodies!!

I’m thinking some of those Jolly Rancher Watermelon candies inside…

Last project, I actually came up with myself…sort of.  I actually copied an idea from My Paper Pumpkin

I really liked the way the card slides into the pocket so I made this to go with the Watermelon theme:
